Tuesday Evening Prayer

My Lord and protector, I beg you to continue your gracious protection to me and my family this night. Defend us from all dangers, and from the fear of them; that we may enjoy such refreshing sleep as may fit us for the duties of the coming day.

And grant me grace always to live in such a state that I may never be afraid to die; so that, living and dying, I may be yours, through the merits and satisfaction of your Son Christ Jesus, in whose name I offer up these my imperfect prayers.

Offer Him thanksgiving for a blessing you enjoyed this day

Father, help me to plant a garden of joy every day, and weed out my negative thinking. Your precious word teaches me to be joyful in You no matter what my circumstances are. You are my rock and salvation, and I praise you for who you are.

Our prayers continue Lord for the wave of school shootings that plague our nation. It is a testimony to hate and fear in our nation. Comfort those injured both physically and personally. Grant courage to those who protect and wisdom to those who decide.

Review your day with Him and look for His handprint

Holy Spirit, I offer my thanks for your presence in this day and for guidance you have given me.

O Christ, I confess to you the sins and failings of my day that you might not only forgive but reconcile any harm I have done.

Confess your failings, accept and thank Him for His forgiveness

Tonight, Lord, I lift before you those I may know who have suffered loss or grief today. Grant them that peace that passes understanding and a hope to endure.

I offer to you, Lord, any last stirrings of my heart before you give me rest.

Give over to His hands those things which occupy your mind and receive His rest.

Let me rejoice and be glad in what you have given. Do not allow the enemy to steal my joy! Father, teach me to be grateful in all circumstances. Do not let my heart become heavy with resentment and envy. AMEN
