Evening Prayer – 5/9/17

SILENCE AND CENTERING (2-5 MINUTES)

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

SCRIPTURE READING

We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. l John 4:13, 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

Dear Father in heaven, we thank you with all our hearts because we know you are holding us by your hand and leading us on all our ways, in spite of all contradiction, strife, distress, and confusion within ourselves. What are all these compared to your love, which does not let us go but watches over us and finally brings us to what is good? Release us from our many burdens. Free our spirits and our souls more and more until we can do nothing but give praise and thanks with heart, soul, and strength for all you are to us. Amen.

CONCLUDE WITH SILENCE (2-3 MINUTES)
