Short Evening Devotion for May 17, 2021
Prayer for Evening
O gracious Light, pure brightness of the ever-living Father in heaven, O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!
Now as I come to the setting of the sun, and my eyes behold the evening light, I sing your praises O God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices, O Son of God, O Giver of life, and to be glorified throughout the world.
For God’s Protection
Be present, O merciful God, and protect us through the silent hours of this night, so that we who are wearied by the changes and chances of this fleeting world, may rest upon your eternal changelessness; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Galatians 5:22-23 (Daily Prayer Bible)
Fruits of the Spirit - Faith (Galatians #85)
22-23 The Spirit, on the other hand, produces fruit: . . . faith . . . . In this, the Law and the Spirit agree, because the Law does not forbid such things.
As I travel through the rest of my day, may the God of hope fill me with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit I may abound in hope.
