Evening Prayer

GIVING TO THE NEEDY
Matthew 6:1-4

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

I pray that if you give to the needy, you will do it out of love and compassion. May you be careful not to give just to be seen by others. Remember that if you do, you will have no reward from our Father in heaven. I pray that when you give, you will not announce it with trumpets as the hypocrites do. I pray that you will not be hungry for honor. Realize that the Father recognizes those who – with the right heart – give in secret; and He will reward them in full.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Goodbye to The Day

A silent breeze that just went by,

Those numerous stars in the sky.

Are giving you a message.

A message to bid goodbye,

To the day just passed,

And let your consciousness fly,

In your dreams for some time,

Away from this hot and dry.

Let the cozy sleep be a sweet visitor,

That slowly makes you enter,

The world called wonderland,

Resting your mind and your hands,

That worked and worked the whole day,

Keeping your worries at a bay.

It is getting too dark now,

It is the perfect time to say,

Good night and dream sweet,

And calmly lay,

In the arms of your bed.

In a tight sleep when you lie,

a silent breeze that just went by,

Those numerous stars in the sky

Are giving you a message.

A message to bid good bye,

To the day just passed,

And let your consciousness fly.

Good night…

Amen.

Strength Today

So then, no more boasting about mere mortals! For everything belongs to you, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future. Everything belongs to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God. [1 Cor 3:21-23]

as sorrowful, but always rejoicing, as poor, but making many rich, as having nothing, and yet possessing everything. [2 Cor 6:10]

Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,

As more of heaven in each we see:

Some softening gleam of love and prayer

Shall dawn on every cross and care.

~ J. KEBLE ~

Out of love and hatred, out of earnings, and borrowings, and lendings, and losses; out of sickness and pain, out of wooing and worshipping; out of travelling, and voting, and watching, and caring; out of disgrace and contempt, comes our tuition in the serene and beautiful laws. Let him not slur his lesson; let him learn it by heart. Let him endeavor exactly, bravely, and cheerfully, to solve the problem of that life which is set before him. And this, by punctual action, and not by promises or dreams. Believing, as in God, in the presence and favor of the grandest influences, let him deserve that favor, and learn how to receive and use it, by fidelity also to the lower observances.

Beautiful Dreams [Good Night]

The lovely blooms in the wild,

Gently closing their eyes.

Waiting for the sun to,

Smile again and again rise.

To freshen the world with,

The warm light so bright.

Dreaming of a beautiful tomorrow,

Lets sleep happy and sleep tight.

No wonder nights scare us,

No worry they are dark.

The day will again come,

Full of fun and spark.

So take your warm,

and cozy pillow beside.

Take a deep breath,

And close your eyes.

Get ready to take rest and,

Say a very good night.

A Soothing Good Night

Another day just went by,

Leaving the memories still so fresh.

The moon the stars have filled the sky,

Like the warmth of life filling my heart.

Never could you wonder how,

Well or not, the day has been.

All you did, to fill it with vows,

To be self made to be gentle and clean.

Letting away all of its bad,

Keeping the good inside your heart.

You well faced it all without being sad,

With the broad subtle smile always on.

Let this night take you in its arm,

Release your troubles and all worries.

Lay down in your bed so warm,

Dream sweet and in no hurry.

Another day has to come,

Another hope will be born.

Another bright smiling sun,

Burning away all the thorns.

Now just lie down and switch off the light,

Look at the entire world wishing you good night.

Amen

Say a Very Good Night
