Prayer for Holy Rest

I first heard this from a Navy chaplain.  No one seems to know its origin.

“O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world lies hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done.  Then in Thy mercy grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last.”

Good night, dear friends.
