O Holy One, into your care I offer all our heaviness this night. Hold on to our pain, stress and sorrow; our worries, fears and doubts. Take in all our hurt, if only for tonight, and grant us some rest. And while we sleep, bless us with strength, imagination, and love to deal with whatever is still around (or sprouts up anew) when we rise tomorrow. Amen.
