EVENING PRAYER – 5/10/17

EVENING PRAYER

SILENCE AND CENTERING (2-5 MINUTES)

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

SCRIPTURE READING

I heard a loud voice proclaiming from the throne: “Now at last God has his dwelling among men! He will dwell among them and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes; there shall be an end to death, and to mourning and crying and pain; for the old order has passed away!”

Revelation 21:3–4, NEB

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 look to you and to Jesus Christ our Savior. Continually renew your grace and your power in our lives, we pray. Renew your grace and power, that we may have light even in dark and distressing times and through the Savior may overcome as we wait faithfully for your kingdom. Help us to be ready to take anything upon ourselves, to serve you with body and soul, with all we have and are. May we belong to the hosts of those who go to meet you, who wait for your coming kingdom, which will bring comfort to the world and to all people who now suffer and grieve. O Lord our God, have mercy on our times and on our world. Grant that with thanks and praise we may soon see the signs of the fulfillment of your promises. Amen.

CONCLUDE WITH SILENCE (2-3 MINUTES)
