O God our Creator,

by whose mercy and might

the world turns safely into darkness

and returns again to light;

We give into your hands our unfinished tasks,

our unsolved problems,

and our unfulfilled hopes,

knowing that only those things which you bless will prosper.

To your great love and protection

we commit each other

and all for whom we have prayed,

knowing that you alone are our sure defender,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
