Evening Prayer


Read an appropriate psalm, out loud if possible. I suggest one of the following psalms:

Psalm 16 | Psalm 138 | Psalm 139


Find an appropriate Bible passage, then read it—out loud, if possible—and think about how it relates to you. I suggest the following:


Pray thanksgivings and petitions; asking God for your specific needs as you see them and giving thanks for specific things in your life. You can pray one gargantuan prayer, or a series of small prayers. You can pray the Lord’s Prayer (Our Father), or you can use it as an outline for a prayer of your own.

Address God with praises
“Our Father, who art…”
Submit to God’s will
“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done…”
Ask for your specific physical needs
“Give us this day our daily bread…”
Ask for forgiveness
“Forgive us our debts…”
To the degree that you yourself are willing to forgive others…
“As we forgive our debtors…”
Ask for help with temptations
“Lead us not into temptation…”
And preservation from evil
“Deliver us from evil…”


End by praying this or a similar prayer:

Lord Jesus, stay with me, for evening is at hand and the day is past; be my companion in the way, kindle my heart, and awaken hope, that I may know you as you are revealed in the Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake of your love. AMEN.
