A prayer of gratitude
at the end of the day

Prayer Theme: Gratitude

O Lord my God, thank you for bringing this day to a close.

Thank you for giving me rest in body and soul.

Your hand has been over me

and has guarded me and preserved me.

Forgive my lack of faith and any wrong that I have done today,

and help me to forgive all who have wronged me.

Let me sleep in peace under your protection,

and keep me from all the temptations of darkness.

Into your hands I commend my loved ones,

and all who are in this place.

I commend to you my body and my soul.

O God, your holy name be praised.


Dietrich Bonhoeffer
