Another Superb Sunday is drawing to a close and Father, we are asking that you would grant us and those we love a peaceful night and a perfect end to such a Superb Sunday. We fully acknowledge and rejoice that our help is in your Name; the maker of heaven and earth. You are indeed the Almighty God, as well as our Heavenly Father.
Tonight each one of us are shouting out, “Glory be to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, so it is now and so it shall ever be, world without end. Alleluia. Amen.”
Although we are about to sleep, we realize that many are still up and some are working, so we are asking you to watch over them. Keep them safe and continue to give them the Grace they need to perform their work. For those of us who are going to sleep, give your angels charge over us. Have them guard and protect our thoughts, dreams and imaginations. Also, tend to the sick, and give rest to those who are weary. give peace to those who are about to dye, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all of this for your love’s sake.
Lord, we are able to rest soundly because we have seen our Savior, whom you have prepared for all the world to see: He is a Light to enlighten the nations, and the glory of your people Israel. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. ~Nickolas Hiemstra
