Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe! At your word night falls. In Your wisdom You open heaven’s gates. You control the elements and rotate the seasons. You set the stars in the vault of heaven. You created night and day. You cause the light to fade when the darkness comes and the darkness to melt away in the light of a new day. O ever-living and eternal God, You will always watch over us, Your creatures. Blessed are You O Lord at whose word night falls.
(from the Talmud)
Posted in love for all who are afraid, all who are lonely, anxious or ill Our Heavenly Father watches over us all through the night and will light the lamp of dawn. May His blessing be with all who watch over sick ones, dying ones and those who grieve. May He who fills the heavens with splendour and cares for all created things keep us in His peace.
