Compline Prayer

Come down we beseech you O Lord upon this house and drive from it all the snares of the enemy. Let your holy angels dwell in it and keep us in peace. And may your blessing be with us always. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

This is the Compline Prayer of the Benedictine Monks of Mt. Saviour Monastery in Pine City, New York. I have it hanging on a wall in our home. It reminds me of my times at Mt. Saviour, but it also is a beautiful prayer to end the day with. Paula has posted several prayers lately and it’s great to be reminded of them.
