Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us in safety to this new day:  Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
               -A Prayer for the Morning           
Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep.  Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love’s sake.  Amen.
               -A Prayer for the Evening
O God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace.  Let the design of your great love shine upon all humanity; and grant us your peace among the nations, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts.  Amen.
-A Prayer for Peace from the New Zealand Book of Common Prayer
