"Our soul must perform two duties. The one is that we must reverently wonder and be surprised. The other is that we must gently let go and let be." Julian of Norwich

Lord, It Is Night

it is night.
The night is for stillness.
Let us be still
in the presence of God.

It is night after a long day.
What has been done
has been done;
what has not been done
has not been done.
Let it be.

The night is dark.
Let our fears
of the darkness
of the world and
of our own lives
rest in you.

The night is quiet.
Let the quietness
of your peace enfold us,
all dear to us, and
all who have no peace.

The night heralds the dawn.
Let us look expectantly to a
new day,
new joys,
new possibilities.

In your name we pray.

New Zealand Book of Prayer
