If we were to pass from this life tonight, we would soon be forgotten. Only those to whom we have done good would remember us, and they are few. That we are given another day on this earth is not to be taken for granted. We would do well to ponder the lessons of this day, and to listen anew to God's voice, so that tomorrow we may walk with God in faith and holiness.
"Lord, in the quiet hour before sleep I turn to you. I reflect on this day, on what I have done, and what I have failed to do.
If I have done any good today, it was when I gave myself up to your will, and allowed you to work in me. All my efforts would be in vain, were it not for the few that had their beginning in you, and that you brought to completion.
I acknowledge the failings of this day: misdeeds I have done, words I have spoken that cannot be taken back, opportunities for good that I have let pass. I do not take for granted your mercy to me. I acknowledge that I do not deserve it. But you have shown me in countless ways the greatness of your love. And so I commend myself to your mercy, and ask forgiveness for my sins.
I do not fear the night, for you are with me. I place my trust in you, and I commend my spirit into your care."
We commend our spirit into God's hands.
"There was a rich man whose land produced an abundant harvest. He said to himself, 'I will tear down my barns and build larger ones to store all my grain. I have ample goods stored up for years to come.'
But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded of you.'
So it will be for the one who stores up treasure for himself on earth, but is not rich in what matters to God."
1 John 3: 1-3 says We do not know what will become of us. We make many choices in life. We think of ourselves as free, but every choice limits freedom. We do not have the perspective of eternity; our every choice is made within the narrow limits of earthly existence. And so we make our way through life nearly blind, knowing little of what effect our choices will have on our future.
But God did not leave us alone in this world. He loved us so much that he sent his own beloved Son to be our light and our hope. He revealed to us that we are God's children, that our life is in his hands, and that he will lead us to a fulfillment far greater than anything we could attain for ourselves. We need only trust him and follow his will.
"Lord God our Father, you created us for a purpose beyond our understanding. We cannot discern this purpose by our own powers, but you revealed it to the world by the death and resurrection of your Son. He revealed to us that we are your children, and that you created us to dwell with you in love for all eternity. He overcame sin and death to reconcile us with you. Free us from every form of bondage that separates us from you and purify us by the fire of your love. Guide us by the light of your truth, and lead us to the eternal life you have prepared for us."
Prayer of Hope
We trust the Lord to bring us to fulfillment.
"See what love the Father has for us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
Bec Mark 5: 25-34 says Our life is a gift of God. That we have it at all is a miracle that we never fully appreciate. But we are sometimes reminded of how fragile our life is when we are afflicted with illness.
We do not question the will of God. The Lord gave us life, and we know that he will one day take it from us. In times of illness we see that we are utterly dependent on God.
To suffer illness is an opportunity to share in the suffering of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who took upon himself our human condition, and suffered and died for us that we might be reconciled to God. We have the assurance of faith that if we suffer with him, we will also be raised up with him to the joy of eternal life.
"Lord Jesus Christ, I pray to you in time of illness. If it be your will, heal me with the touch of your hand. Then with renewed faith I will dedicate my life to serving you. But if it be your will that I should suffer, give me the courage to join my suffering with yours, so that even in this I may serve you. And if you should will that this be the hour that I depart from this life, give me strength for the journey and lead me safely to the house of your Father, that I might abide with you in peace forever.
Prayer in Illness
Faith assures us that if we suffer with Christ, we will also be raised up with him.
"A woman who had been afflicted with bleeding for twelve years approached Jesus. She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors, yet she was not helped but only grew worse. She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak. She said to herself, 'If I but touch his cloak, I shall be cured.' Immediately her flow of blood dried up.
Jesus was aware that power had gone out from him and turned around in the crowd and asked, 'Who touched me?'
The woman, realizing what had happened to her, approached in fear and trembling. She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, 'Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction.'"
Bec Matthew 6: 6 says We are never alone. No truth is more important than this: that God is always with us. He imparted his own Spirit to us at the moment of our conception, and he has been with us ever since, closer to us than we are to ourselves. He has never ceased to sustain us with his life-giving Spirit. And he has never ceased to look upon us with a Father's love.
"Lord God, in the silence of my heart I meet with you in prayer. I thank you for this quiet time with you. I do not fear the darkness of night, nor loneliness, nor the storm, because you are with me. Your presence gives me courage to face the trials of my daily life. Because I walk with you, I am filled with confidence. You have been with me from the beginning, and you are with me still, and surely you will be with me until the end. And you will lead me to eternal life with you."
Bec John 3: 16-17 says God has endowed man with intelligence to understand all the mysteries of the universe. And with each new generation man unlocks new secrets of knowledge. But God would have man know one thing more than any other. Time and time again God sent messengers into the world to proclaim this all-important truth. But man did not accept it. Finally he sent his own beloved Son, the very image of himself, to dwell among us as a man, and to reveal his word. It is this: God created us for love; and his love for us will never end.
"Father, so great is your love for us that you gave us your only Son that we might believe in him, and be led to eternal life. We give you thanks for so great a love. Shine the light of your truth in the darkness of our world, and guide us along the way to eternal life.
Prayer of the Beloved..bec We all need to give thanks to the Lord for his great love,
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish, but may have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but that the world might be saved through him.
Bec Matthew 5: 43-45 says Jesus' words are blunt: love those who do evil to you. No one has ever given a commandment as difficult as this. Human nature recoils at such an idea. It is surprising that Jesus had any followers at all. But it is at the heart of the message that Jesus brings to the world. God is the Father of all the children of the earth, and he loves each one of them unconditionally. And his desire for us is that we love one another as he loves us.
"Lord Jesus, I pray for my enemies, as you prayed for yours. But I do not truly pray as you do. For although I heed your command to love my enemy, I can love him only until I see his face. Then I recoil from him, and I cannot love him.
Lord Jesus, help my unbelief. You have taught me that you never cease to embrace the penitent. If you forgive my enemy, then I too must forgive him. Take from me the burden of my hatred. Help me to see as you see, and to love as you love, that I may not be left outside, but may be welcome in the circle of your love."
Prayer for my Enemies ...Rev i believe that We are called to love as the Lord has loved us.
You have heard it said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you: love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. For God makes the sun rise on the bad and the good, and sends rain to fall on the just and the unjust alike
