Prayer for the Night Watches {#1}

Lord, 

I love how Your day begins in the evening, as we slow and enter our time of rest. It is in these moments that You wait for us, speak tenderly to us and guide us towards Your heart...our cares, our wounds, our strivings and our dreams all come forward in our hearts and minds, and we can lay them down at Your feet, let them go...release them into Your open hands.

I lay my cares and concerns, dreams and goals, weaknesses and strengths at Your feet. Refine them, purify me. Heal, sift and mold my heart, and let all that You desire infuse me...

Let these Night Watches pass in peaceful contentment as I release myself into Your embrace...

Amen
