This extract from the Liturgy of the Hours offers the last prayer of the day for each day of the week. Including hymns and psalmody, scripture readings and gospel canticles, this brief prayer is prayed just before going to bed.

Also called Compline, Night Prayer brings the labors of the day to a close in prayer. This form of prayer for nighttime emphasizes confidence in the works of God, thankfulness, spiritual examen and penitence, and meditation on Scriptures related to spiritual rest and peace. It can be integrated into one’s routine and become part of the rhythm of daily prayer.

This prayer has the power to transform us from the inside out, as we renew, night after night, the offering of our lives to God in union with Christ. This book will help Catholics join in the daily prayer of the Church.

Pick up this book as your part of your regular “Good night” prayers to God!



NOTE: The penitential prayers in the section “When Night Prayer Is Prayed in a Group” (found in Appendix I) have been updated in this book to reflect the new translation of the Roman Missal, Third Edition. Prior to this update, this book was published as product no. 5-148.

Inspirational Psalm:
“I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once / for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
—Psalm 4 from Night Prayer

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from VA United States  
This book has a lovely selection. It is very comforting and encouraging. Easy to follow. I am not good at consistency or building new habits, and this book easily is now the most consistent aspect of my nighttime routine.
