Prayer

Two linked prayers

How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day? (Psalm 13:2; NLT).

Peace I leave you; my peace I give you (John 14:27; NIV).

Return, O my soul, to your rest (Psalm 116:7: ESV).

 

Lord,
I’m glad the day is done,
With all its hopes and fears,
Its struggles, joys,
And sorrows.

Now, may the silence
Of the night
Suffuse my soul,
And bring me peace.

 

Lord,
I’m glad my life is done,
With all its hopes and fears,
Its struggles, joys,
And sorrows.

Now, may the silent deliverance
Of death
Set free my soul,
And bring me peace, at last.

Amen.
