We should end each day by praying to God, thanking him for everything we have experienced throughout the day. Sometimes in life we experience many difficult things, and sometimes we ask the question "Why". Only God in his Providence sees all things. Only he can guide the events of our lives and the events of this world. Every evening we show our trust in his Providence by offering our prayer to him as an evening sacrifice. We also thank him for all the graces he has bestowed on us throughout the day, knowing that it is only by grace that we can grow in love for God and neighbour.
Below you will find a simple Evening Prayer that will help you end your day. You can download the written version as a PDF file, or you can listen to the audio recording.
Lord, today was long and tonight I have a lot on my mind. May I please leave all my troubles with you as I sleep?
"Let my prayer arise before you like incense, the raising of my hands like an evening oblation."
