Evening Prayers Thursday

My Lord and Savior, I beseech 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 a blessing you enjoyed this day

Help me, Lord. To admire without coveting. To give without demanding. To except without depending. To enjoy without surfeiting. To tolerate without patronizing. To reject without condemning. To disagree without resisting. To forgive without condemning. To direct without driving. To control without suppressing. To love without possessing. To praise without flattering. To work without weariness. To pray without ceasing.

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 lead your church, our community and nation.  Grant them compassion as well as wisdom and stir them to seek your wisdom over that of men.

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

O Lord Jesus, you were scourged and humiliated and degraded for me that I might be lifted up, adopted as a child of God, and share in your inheritance. All glory, honor and praise to you.

AMEN

Lord, it is because of Your presence that extends throughout the world that I am not afraid of what the enemies are planning against me. It is because of Your promise that ‘no weapon fashioned against me shall prosper’ that I am not dismayed. It is because of Your Word said that no one should touch Your anointed and do no harm to Your prophet that I am certain that I am safe from harm.

Lord, anoint my head with Your Holy Spirit. Strengthen me and help me. Uphold me with Your righteous right hand, now and forever.

Lord, when I walk through danger, I am not afraid. Even though I walk through the valley of shadow of death, I fear no evil because You are with me.

You are my Comforter, keeping me sound in mind, and my Healer, keeping me sound in health.

Lord, no matter what has happened today, I know that You let it happen for a reason and that You will use it for my good in the near future. In Jesus’ Name.   AMEN

Father in the name of Jesus, I thank for all things that you send my way, because I know it’s all for your glory and it’s for my good. I’m going to praise you always because you know what you are doing even when I don’t. Lord, I ask that you look on the sick and the afflicted today, they really do need your help, and Lord I ask that you help them. You know what they are in need of before they start to ask. Father, heal their bodies, souls and minds, turn their life around.

God, these tiny little prayers feel like cheating. Does that even count? Yes, I know they do. Help me combat these feelings of shame by speaking truth, by offering up these small prayers of surrender as I can and trusting they are enough. Give me freedom from the shame I am feeling. Help me fix my thoughts on you, not on my past, my failures or hurts. Give me eyes to see your goodness.

AMEN
