Night Prayer - The Felgild Compline
This compline was named after the hermit Felgild, who lived in the late seventh century in the Inner Farne. It comes from Celtic Daily Prayer from the Northumbria Community.
Please remember in your prayers Philip Moran, who is recovering after cancer treatment and is now at risk in his accommodation of Covid19.

Calm me, O Lord, as you stilled the storm,
Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm.
Let all the tumult within me cease.
Enfold me, Lord, in your peace.
Father bless the work that is done
and the work that is to be.
Father bless the servant that I am
and the servant that I will be.
THOU LORD AND GOD OF POWER;
SHIELD AND SUSTAIN ME THIS NIGHT.
I will lie down this night with God,
and God will lie down with me;
I will lie down this night with Christ,
and Christ will lie down with me;
I will lie down this night with the Spirit,
and the Spirit will lie down with me;
God and Christ and the Spirit,
be lying down with me.
The peace of God
be over me to shelter me,
under me to uphold me,
about me to protect me
behind me to direct me,
ever with me to save me.
The peace of all peace
be mine this night.
+in the name of the Father, (+ you may make the sign of the cross )
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
