Monday Evening Prayers

My Lord and shield, I implore you to continue your gracious protection to me and my family this night. Defend us from all dangers, and from the fear of them; that we may enjoy such refreshing sleep as may fit us for the duties of the coming day.

And grant me grace always to live in such a state that I may never be afraid to die; so that, living and dying, I may be yours, through the merits and satisfaction of your Son Christ Jesus, in whose name I offer up these my imperfect prayers.

Offer Him thanksgiving for the blessings you have enjoyed this day

Heavenly Father, I’m so grateful you allowed me to see another day. Thank you for my life, health and strength. I’m able to see and move only because you allowed me to do so. My Heavenly Father, you’ve been good to me, and I will never forget that. So many things could have gone wrong, but you give me another chance. Thank you for my second chance.

Review your day with Him and look for His handprint

Holy Spirit, I offer my thanks for your presence in this day and for guidance you have given me.

O Christ, I confess to you the sins and failings of my day that you might not only forgive but reconcile any harm I have done.

Confess your failings, accept and thank Him for His forgiveness

Tonight, Lord, I lift before you those who stand in harm’s way on my behalf.  Protect them and grant them wisdom in the execution of their duties.

I offer to you, Lord, any last stirrings of my heart before you give me rest.

Give over to His hands those things which occupy your mind and receive His rest

Heavenly Lord, may we never forget that we are yours, and that your love never changes regardless of time. This is the day you have made, and in every moment, we will rejoice for you have taken our shame and made us your children!

In Jesus Name.  AMEN
