Evening Prayer

 

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come; holy, holy, holy are You. Our Father, Who art in heaven, heaven and earth are full of Your magnificent glory, angels and people cry out to You; holy, holy, holy are You. Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses and sins, as we forgive those who trespassed against us; and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one; for Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, world without end, amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

From the beginning and unto all ages, amen and amen. Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come; holy, holy, holy are You. Our Father, Who art in heaven, heaven and earth are full of Your magnificent glory, angels and people cry out to You; holy, holy, holy are You. Let us pray, peace be with us.

     Prayer: We confess, my Lord, Your Divinity (repeat) worship Your Majesty and lift up praise to Your glorious Trinity at all times, O Lord of all; Father…

(Psalm 141)

O Lord, I call You my help ☼ listen to my plea and accept my prayer ☼ O Lord, I call You my help ☼ listen to my plea and accept my prayer ☼ Let my prayer be incense before You ☼ my uplifted hands an evening sacrifice ☼ Set a guard, Lord, before my mouth ☼ a gatekeeper at my lips ☼ Do not let my heart incline to evil ☼ or yield to any sin ☼ I will never feast upon the fine food of evildoers ☼ Let the just strike me, that is kindness ☼ let them rebuke me, that is oil for my head ☼ All this I shall not refuse ☼ but will pray despite these trials ☼ When their leaders are cast over the cliff ☼ all will learn that my prayers were heard ☼ As when a farmer plows a field into broken clods ☼ so their bones will be strewn at the mouth of Sheol ☼ My eyes are upon You, O God ☼ my Lord, in You I take refuge ☼ do not strip me of life ☼ Guard me from the trap they have set for me ☼ from the snares of evildoers ☼ Into their own nets let all the wicked fall ☼ while I make good my own escape ☼

(Psalm 142)

 With my voice I cry to the Lord ☼ with my voice I beseech the Lord ☼ Before God I pour out my complaint ☼ lay bare my distress ☼ My spirit is faint within me ☼ but You know my path ☼ Along the way I walk they have hidden a trap for me ☼ I look to my right hand, but no friend is there ☼ There is no escape for me ☼ no one cares for me ☼ I cry out to You, Lord ☼ I say, You are my refuge ☼ my portion in the land of the living ☼ Listen to my cry for help ☼ for I am brought very low ☼ Rescue me from my pursuers ☼ for they are too strong for me ☼ Lead me out of my prison ☼ that I may give thanks to Your Name ☼ Then the just shall gather around me ☼ because You have been good to me ☼

(Psalm 119:105-113)

Your word is a lamp for my feet ☼ a light for my path ☼ I make a solemn vow to keep Your just edicts ☼ I am very much afflicted, Lord ☼ give me life in accord with Your word ☼ Accept my freely offered praise, Lord ☼ teach me Your decrees ☼ My life is always at risk ☼ but I do not forget Your teaching ☼ The wicked have set snares for me ☼ but from Your precepts I do not stray ☼ Your decrees are my heritage forever ☼ they are the joy of my heart ☼ My heart is set on fulfilling Your laws ☼ they are my reward forever ☼

(Psalm 117)

Praise the Lord, all you nations! ☼ Give glory, all you peoples! ☼ The Lord’s love for us is strong ☼ the Lord is faithful forever ☼ Glory be… from the beginning… O Lord, I call You my help; listen to my plea and accept my prayer. Let us pray, peace be with us.

Final Prayer: Glory to You Jesus our conquering King, the brightness of the Eternal Father, begotten without beginning, before all times and beings; we have no hope and expectation unless it is You, O Creator. By the prayer of the just and elect who have been approved by You from the beginning, pardon our sins, forgive our offenses, deliver us from affliction, answer our requests, bring us to Your brilliant light and protect us by Your living Cross, from all harm hidden and manifest; now ♱ and at all times and forever.
