Evening Prayer: April 7th

Great God of glory, thank you for your presence, which has attended me today, and for the rest you now give. Shelter me safely in your care, covering me with your loving hand. May I know the afterglow of your presence. As I yield my mind and body to your care in the night, thank you for your steadfast loving-kindness, your mercy and compassion, O God of glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Hymn: The Lord’s My Shepherd, I’ll Not Want by Francis Rous

1 The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want.
He makes me down to lie
in pastures green; he leadeth me
the quiet waters by.

2 My soul he doth restore again,
and me to walk doth make
within the paths of righteousness,
e’en for his own name’s sake.

3 Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
yet will I fear none ill,
for thou art with me and thy rod
and staff me comfort still.

4 My table thou hast furnished
in presence of my foes.
My head thou dost with oil anoint,
and my cup overflows.

5 Goodness and mercy all my life
shall surely follow me,
and in God’s house forevermore
my dwelling place shall be.

Psalm 105:1-8 (ESV)

Tell of All His Wondrous Works

105 Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
    make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
    tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
Seek the Lord and his strength;
    seek his presence continually!
Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
    his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
O offspring of Abraham, his servant,
    children of Jacob, his chosen ones!

He is the Lord our God;
    his judgments are in all the earth.
He remembers his covenant forever,
    the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
