Evening Prayer

For he is our God; we are the people of his pasture, the sheep he owns. Today, if only you would obey him! He says, “Do not be stubborn like they were at Meribah, like they were that day at Massah in the wilderness,
Ps 95:7-8 NET

Be wise to-day; ’tis madness to defer;
Next day the fatal precedent will plead;
Thus on, till wisdom is pushed out of life.
Procrastination is the thief of time;
Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
And to the mercies of a moment leaves
The vast concerns of an eternal scene.
– Dr. Edward Young

O, my friend, rise up and follow
Where the hand of God shall lead;
He has brought thee through affliction,
But to fit thee for his need.
– Mary Howitt

Prayer

Lord God,

I come to thee for help, that I may make more of my life. Steady me, that I may know its value without wavering, and the loss it sustains from wasted days. I pray that I may live more in thy commandments, and with my work accept the joy of thy love.

Amen.
