Evening Prayer

REFINING HIS CHILDREN 
Jeremiah 9:7; Zechariah 13:9; Malachi 3:3

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Tonight

I pray that God will mold you and transform you into the person He wants you to be. Because you are unique in your calling and purpose, may you be willing to surrender yourself to your Maker. Whatever you are going through, may you trust Him and know that He is refining you like silver and gold. Allow God to take you down His path; do not fear, for He is in control. As a child of God, your Heavenly Father knows what’s best for you. May you be assured that this refinement is for your own good, so that you may be able to receive and enjoy the glorious inheritance He has in store for His children. I pray that you will submit to God, as He works in your life.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Evening Prayer

RECEIVE AND SHARE COMFORT 
2 Corinthians 1:3-5

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Tonight 

I pray that you may find comfort in our God, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. May He meet you in your time of need. I pray that Christ’s comfort overflows to strengthen you so you may help ease the pain of others in return. May you never withhold love and comfort from those in need. In spite of your troubles, may you still encourage others with the comfort you have received from God’s grace in your life.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Eternal Perspectives

God uses suffering and impending death to unfasten us from this earth and to set our minds on what lies beyond. I’ve lost people close to me. (Actually, I haven’t lost them, because I know where they are—rather, I’ve lost contact with them.) I’ve spent a lot of time talking to people who’ve been diagnosed with terminal diseases. These people, and their loved ones, have a sudden and insatiable interest in the afterlife. Most people live unprepared for death. But those who are wise will go to a reliable source to investigate what’s on the other side. And if they discover that the choices they make during their brief stay in this world will matter in the world to come, they’ll want to adjust those choices accordingly.

Prayer Guide

Today I invoke heaven and earth as a witness against you that I have set life and death, blessing and curse, before you. Therefore choose life so that you and your descendants may live! — Deut 30:19

The Great Being unseen, but all-present, who in his beneficence desires only our welfare, watches the struggle between good and evil in our hearts, and waits to see whether we obey his voice, heard in the whispers of conscience, or lend an ear to the Spirit Evil, which seeks to lead us astray. Rough and steep is the path indicated by divine suggestion; mossy and declining the green way along which temptation strews flowers. Then conscience whispers, “Do what you feel is right, obey me, and I will plant for you firm footing.”
— Charlotte Brontë

God help us do our duty, and not shrink,
And trust in heaven humbly for the rest.
— Owen Meredith

My Father, as I review my life I am impressed how accurately my deeds have copied my thoughts. And though I have failed the so often, yet I pray that thou wilt accept my yearnings, to think and work for the best in every day. Amen.
