A prayer for the evening

It’s been a while…

A prayer for the evening from Common Worship’s service for Evening Prayer for Advent:

Blessed are you, Sovereign God

creator of light and darkness,

to you be glory and praise for ever.

As evening falls, you renew your promise

to reveal among us the light of your presence.

May your word be a lantern to our feet

and a light upon our path

that we may behold your coming among us.

Strengthen us in our stumbling weakness

and free our tongues to sing your praise.
