O God, our Guide and Guardian, you have led us apart from the busy world into the quiet of your house.  Grant us grace to worship you in Spirit and in truth, to the comfort of our souls and the upbuilding of every good purpose and holy desire. Enable us to do more perfectly the work to which you have called us, that we may not fear the coming of night, when we shall resign into your hands the tasks which you have committed to us.  So may we worship you not with our lips at this hour, but in word and deed all the days of our lives; through Jesus Christ our Savior.  Amen.
