We Commend Ourselves This Day

Into your hands, O God,
we commend ourselves
and all who are dear to us this day.
Let your presence be with us even to its close.
Let us never lose sight of you
all the day long,
but let us worship and pray to you,
that at evening we may again give you thanks;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Into your hands, O Lord,
we commend ourselves this day.
Let your presence be with us to its close.
Strengthen us to remember
that in whatever good work we do we are serving you.
Give us a diligent and watchful spirit,
that we may seek to know your will in all things,
and in knowing it, gladly to perform it,
to the honor and glory of your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
