Evening Prayer: May 20th


Almighty God, as this day fades into night, my soul is buoyed by your light. Thank you for your presence in my dealings today. I was truly in need of spiritual refreshment and you provided me with all that I needed. I end this day in the comfort of being blessed by your love. Give me shelter and peace this night. IN the name of Jesus Amen.

Hymn: O Spirit of the Living God by Henry H. Tweedy

1 O Spirit of the living God, 
thou light and fire divine, 
descend upon thy church once more, 
and make it truly thine. 
Fill it with love and joy and power, 
with righteousness and peace; 
till Christ shall dwell in human hearts, 
and sin and sorrow cease. 

2 Blow, wind of God! With wisdom blow 
until our minds are free 
from mists of error, clouds of doubt, 
which blind our eyes to thee. 
Burn, winged fire! Inspire our lips 
with flaming love and zeal, 
to preach to all thy great good news, 
God’s glorious commonweal. 

3 Teach us to utter living words 
of truth which all may hear, 
the language all may understand 
when love speaks loud and clear; 
till every age and race and clime 
shall blend their creeds in one, 
and earth shall form one family 
by whom thy will is done. 

4 So shall we know the power of Christ 
who came this world to save; 
so shall we rise with him to life 
which soars beyond the grave; 
and earth shall win true holiness, 
which makes thy children whole; 
till, perfected by thee, we reach 
creation’s glorious goal!


Need to wake up, people.
