A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Wednesday 5/4

 

Ship us, Lord, from each evil, 

graciously grant peace in our days, 

that, by the assistance
of your mercy, 

we could also be at all times free from sin 

and secure from all misery…

We pray these phrases
each time we collect at your desk, Lord,
once we ask for:
   – deliverance from each evil
   – peace in the present day
   – freedom from all sin
   – and a life secure from all misery

We ask for lots, Lord!

And as today ends, 

I am considering we must always, pray these phrases 

– each night time! 

 

These 4 petitions sum up so nicely 

a lot of what we want from you, 

a lot of what we lengthy for: 

    the deliverance, peace, freedom and security 

    that solely you may supply, solely you can provide…

So, tonight, Lord, I pray that you just ship us from evil:
   – the evil of racism, poverty and war,
       of consumerism, greed and selfishness,
       of assaults on the dignity of human life
            Ship us, Lord, from each evil…

Tonight I pray for peace in our personal occasions, Lord,

    – peace in our world, in our nation, 

        in our communities, streets and neighborhoods

    – peace in Ukraine 

    – peace in our households – prior to later 

    – peace in our minds, in our hearts, in our souls, 

        peace with you, Lord, and peace with our selves 

            Graciously grant us peace, Lord, in our personal day…

Tonight I pray that you just preserve us free from sin, Lord: 

    – freed from temptation and its wily methods 

    – freed from sin that is grow to be a behavior 

    – freed from the sins of omission and silence 

    – freed from the sins we discover hardest to confess  

    – freedom from something and every little thing  

        that separates us from you and our neighbor 

            Hold us free from sin, Lord…

And tonight, Lord, I pray that you just preserve us secure from all misery:
   – the misery of fear, doubt and concern
           of illness, sickness and ache
           of tyranny, terrorism and struggle
           of tension, melancholy and grief
           of starvation, homelessness and wish
       the misery of discouragement, loneliness and despair
            Hold us secure from all misery, Lord…

I do know, Lord – that is asking rather a lot!
However that is what we want – and you’re all now we have:
    you’re our greatest, our solely hope…

With humble hearts we pray for such nice items, 

    we pray for the grace that is yours to provide: 

        – the grace to show away from evil

             each time, wherever we encounter it; 

        – the grace to work for peace now, 

            peace on the earth, in our nation, 

                in our cities and in our properties 

        – the grace to show away from sin

             and stroll the trail of your knowledge, phrase and fact 

        – the grace to show to you once we’re in misery

             and supply refuge to all who come to us in want…

 

Ship us, Lord, from each evil, 

graciously grant peace in our days, 

that, by the assistance
of your mercy, 

we could also be at all times free from sin 

and secure from all misery…

And in that very same spirit, Lord, we pray:
    defend us whereas we’re nonetheless awake
    and watch over us as we sleep
    that awake, we would watch with you
    and asleep, relaxation in your peace…

Amen.
