As the day draws to a close, my God,
My prayer rises to you.
Receive this gratitude for one more day,
Of a life that has been filled with grace.
May I have been a witness to your goodness,
A proclaimer of your mightiness.
It is only by your benevolence that I can stand,
That tomorrow I will rise to meet a new day.
Whatever trials that come, may I lean on you in humility.
Watch over me as I rest, and speak your will into my heart.
Use the stillness of my body and mind for your purpose.
I long to know what you would have me do with the gift that is tomorrow.
Let me hear you with all that I am,
And likewise fulfill your call.
