Lord our God,
as we keep watch with you this night
we commend all people
and their lives to you.
We remember in particular all those who are working,
those who in their suffering cannot sleep,
those who use the night to do evil,
those who are afraid of the day about to dawn.
May they all come out into the light of your Day.
We ask you this, through Jesus, our Lord.
Amen.
