O Light Eternal, I thank you for the light of this day and for the vesper light that now casts its shadows across your earth. Illumine for us our hearts that we may see those places where our sin prevented us from living into your will and show us the ways in which your glory shone through us as we lived as your people in the world today. Forgive us for where our path was not your path and strengthen us that we may allow you to continue to shape us through the experiences of this day for your good purposes.
As this night descends, we ask that your Holy Spirit would enfold us lest we be overtaken by your enemy. We pray that you would give us rest and that you would renew within us a right spirit that tomorrow, if it be your will, we may wake just that much closer to being as your Son, Jesus, has called us – holy. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit we pray. Amen.
