evening prayer

Page history last edited by Andrew Alder 14 years ago

This is just an example. You are encouraged to adapt it, or even make up your own.

 

It's the end of another day, Lord, what Calvin's dad once called one more chunk out of a finite and rapidly vanishing lifetime. There were opportunities there, some I took, some I wasted, and some I didn't even notice. And some will never come again, just as this day will never come again.

 

I give it all to you. All that I have done in your service, all that I have done well, all that I have done not so well, all that I left you out of completely. The good decisions I made, and the ones I'm not sure about, and the others. I need to trust you with all of it.

 

One day I know I will have no choice but to trust you. Strengthen my trust in you, and help me to practise it in this life, so that I will be ready to trust you in eternity.

 

Thank you for the rest I am about to enjoy. As you rested from your labours, help me now to rest, and awake soothed and refreshed to serve you tomorrow.

Do you have a prayer that you share with your partner before bed? Or would you like to write one? We need a prayer for couples! Watch this space!
