We thank You, O Lord, for the wonderful goodness of Your providence during another day and another week. Still we are preserved by Your kind and effectual care. Our health continues, our home comforts are perpetuated by You. We meet together to-night and close the week once more in peace. The shadow of no great trouble has fallen on us. Thanks for ever be unto Your blessed name; and may the love which has followed us through all the scenes of the day, and all the circumstances of the week, be with us through the watches of this night. May we lie down under Your protection, sleep through Your bestowment of rest, and wake refreshed by that slumber which is Your gift and will prepare us for the holy engagements of the coming Lord’s day. May earthly cares and troubles be forgotten by us, except so far as they may stimulate our devotion, and furnish subject for prayer and holy meditation. All we ask is in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom, with You and the Holy Spirit, be everlasting praises. Amen!
