MIDDAY / EVENING PRAYER

SILENCE AND CENTERING (2-5 MINUTES)

Be still and know that I am God. —Ps. 46:10

OPENING PRAYER & SCRIPTURE READING

O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

I cry to you, Lord; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.” Psalm 142:5, NIV

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy Name,

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

Forgive us our trespasses

As we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and

the glory forever and ever, Amen.

CONCLUDING PRAYER

Lord our God, we seek your light and pray that you shed your light upon us so that we live not only on earth but in you, the eternal and living One. May our lives be drawn into eternity, to the praise of your name, O Father. May we take your Word to heart so that we can become true men and women, able to bear everything in your name and to remain in the love you want to give us. Rouse us to become true men and women at the side of Jesus Christ our Savior, who has been patient in all things with all people. Be with us at all times, Lord our God. You are our help and our refuge. Amen.

CONCLUDE WITH SILENCE (2-3 MINUTES)
