Prayer for the Evening

Lord, the day is coming to an end. The night is for stillness. Let me be still in the presence of God. It is night after a long day. What has been done has been done; What has not been done has not been done; let it be.

The night is dark. Let my fears of the darkness of the world and of my own life rest in you.

The night is quiet. Let the quietness of your peace enfold me, all dear to me, and all who have no peace.

The night heralds the dawn. Let me look expectantly to a new day, new joys, new possibilities. In Christ’s name, I pray,


Romans 9:19-26 (ESV)


ou will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?”

But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?

What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory—even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles?

As indeed he says in Hosea,

“Those who were not my people I will call ‘my people,’
and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved.’”
“And in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’
there they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’”

Blessing of Mark

O  Sovereign and almighty Lord, bless all your people, and all your flock. Give your peace, your help, and your love unto us your servants, the sheep of your fold, that we may be united in the bond of peace and love, one body and one spirit, in one hope of our calling, in your divine and boundless love.
