God, thank you for the day just over. Thank you for my tongue and the ability to express my thoughts; thank you for my ears to listen to others. Ever-present God, whose love has embraced me this day, grant me a night of rest and renewal. Accept any kind and helpful word or deed I have done that has brought glory to you this day. Forgive me for where I have not followed your leading. Dwell within me this evening loving God. Stay within my heart. Fill me with hope. Grant me your peace which passes all human understanding. Through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

Psalm 116:1-7 (ESV)
I Love the Lord
116 I love the Lord, because he has heard
my voice and my pleas for mercy.
2 Because he inclined his ear to me,
therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
3 The snares of death encompassed me;
the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;
I suffered distress and anguish.
4 Then I called on the name of the Lord:
“O Lord, I pray, deliver my soul!”
5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
our God is merciful.
6 The Lord preserves the simple;
when I was brought low, he saved me.
7 Return, O my soul, to your rest;
for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.
