Prayer for Peace


O Lord,
support us all the day long,
until the shadows lengthen
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over,
and our work is done.

Then, Lord,
in Your mercy
grant us safe lodging,
and a holy rest,
and peace at the last;
through Jesus Christ
our Lord.
Amen.

-John Henry Newman (1801-1890)
