A Collect for the Presence of Christ
        Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at
        hand and the day is past; be our companion
        in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken
        hope, that we may know you as you are
        revealed in Scripture and the breaking of
        bread. Grant this for the sake of your love.
        Amen.


        A Collect for Night
        Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who
        work, or watch, or weep this night, and give
        your angels charge over those who sleep.
        Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the
        weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering,
        pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all
        for your love’s sake. Amen.


        Prayers


        A Prayer of Confession
        Almighty God, our heavenly Father:
        We have sinned against you,
        through our own fault,
        in thought, and word, and deed,
        and in what we have left undone.
        For the sake of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ,
        forgive us all our offenses;
        and grant that we may serve you in newness
        of life, to the glory of your Name. Amen.


        Absolution
        May the Almighty God grant us forgiveness
        of all our sins, and the grace and comfort of
        the Holy Spirit. Amen.
