Prayer in the evening
O LORD, I call to you; come quickly to me.
Hear my voice when I call to you.
May my prayer be set before you like incense;
may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.
Lord of rest and renewal,
I thank you for this day.
For its joy and sorrow.
For its successes and failures.
For its peace and turmoil,
For its fulfilment and struggles.
May I rest in your abiding love and grace this night,
that, renewed and strengthened, I may rise to serve you again
as the new day dawns
and your kingdom comes ever closer;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Here you could use the prayer for this week and hold people, places and issues on your heart before God
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever. Amen.
Holy Spirit, comfort me this night,
And lead me to joy everlasting.
