End of Day Prayer


At the ending of the day,

in the darkness of the night

I seek an inner assurance of your presence.

My body is still

and my soul is silent

as I listen for the renewing springs of your Spirit

deep within the ground of my being

and in earth’s quietness around me.

Guide me to the wellsprings of health

In the landscape of my soul

and to the hidden reservoirs of strength

in the people and places of my life

that I may be made well this night,

that I may be made well
