Evening Prayer: December 27th

Gracious God, thank you for your hand that has guided me throughout this day. I thank you for the opportunities to be your light and for the times of strength when I was weak. Forgive me for where I was less than what you called me to be. Remember those who mourn and grieve. Shelter us all beneath your wings as we rest. In the name of Jesus. Amen.


From C.S. Lewis

unnamed

No one will believe this who has not lived long and looked hard, so that he knows how suddenly a passion for which has for years been wrapped round the whole of the heart will dry up and wither. Perhaps in the soul, as in the soil, those growths that show the brightest colours and put forth the most overpowering smell have not always the deepest root. Or perhaps it’s age that does it.

Daily Scripture Passage: 1 John 1:1-4

1 John 1:1-4 (ESV)

The Word of Life

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.
