An Evening Prayer

Blessed are you, O Lord our God,
for you have granted us to pass through this day
and to reach the beginning of the night.
Hear our prayers and those of all your people.
Forgive our sins and hear our evening requests.
Send down on us the fullness of your mercy.
Arm us with the armor of your righteousness,
fence us round with your truth,
guard us with your power.
Deliver us from every assault and device of evil,
and grant that we may pass this evening,
and the approaching night,
and all the days of our life,
in the fullness of peace and holiness;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen.
