A prayer sent to us by Robert, Bishop of Exeter, which is a prayer of South India which he uses every night before he goes to sleep:
God our Father, by whose mercy
the world turns safely into darkness and returns again to light: we place in your hands our unfinished tasks,
our unsolved problems, and our unfulfilled hopes, knowing that only what you bless will prosper.
To your love and protection
we commit each other and all those we love, knowing that you alone are our sure defender, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
