Welcoming the dusk with prayers

Welcoming the dusk with prayers

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you." - Jeremiah 29:11-12

As we welcome the dusk to signify another ending of our day, let us send our petitions to God, to give thanks for the blessings, ask for forgiveness for all the wrongs of the day, and for guidance as we go home to our families. As we prepare to sleep, let us thank God for another day.  

Father, thank you that you have revealed Your love to us today.

For bringing us to the end of this day with nothing to regret, we thank you, Lord.

It is a good day, o Lord, for You have blessed us with safety as You always do,

As we venture out from our workplace to go home to our families, we invite You to send us out with Your protection.

Thank you, Lord, for the dusk and all the times You helped us today,

when the world seemed in chaos, You had been in control.

Fan into flame the gratefulness in us, so that we may be thankful

For all the gifts and all the ways you worked behind the scenes, unknown to us.

Heavenly Father, my day is drawing to an end, and I'm ready to turn in. But before I do, I have to thank you for today. (Photo credit: Pinterest)

Now that the busy day is over, we pray,

that everything we saw or heard this day with our outward senses, through Your grace, be grafted inwardly in our hearts,

Grant us peace, o Lord, that they may bring forth in us the fruit of good living, to the honor and praise Your Name;

Be with us now as we journey home, dear Father, keep us safe and watch over all our families and friends.

As we welcome the dusk and close our eyes tonight, we pray,

that Your love, like the billions of stars in the night sky, may be recognized by our nation

Grant us all a good night's sleep, Lord, so that we can wake up refreshed and ready to begin another day

May Your protection and Your presence bathe us all with peace and safety through the night.

This, we ask, in the name of the Lord,

Amen.
