O gracious light,

pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,

O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,

and our eyes behold the vesper light,

we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,

O Son of God, O Giver of Life,

and to be glorified through all the worlds.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

green leaf icon Evening Reading

It is not ourselves that we proclaim; we proclaim Christ Jesus as Lord,

and ourselves as your servants, for Jesus' sake.

For the same God who said, "Out of darkness let light shine,"

has caused his light to shine within us,

to give the light of revelation—

the revelation of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6

green leaf icon Intercession

We pray for the peace and unity of the Church of God;
For all who proclaim the Gospel, and all who seek the Truth.

For all ministers;
For all who serve God in the Church.

Hear us, Lord;

For your mercy is great. Amen.

Almighty and eternal God,

so draw our hearts to you,

so guide our minds,

so fill our imaginations,

so control our wills,

that we may be wholly yours,

utterly dedicated unto you;

and then use us, we pray you, as you will,

and always to your glory and the welfare of your people;

through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

green leaf icon The Lord’s Prayer (or Traditional)

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your Name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those

who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial,

and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours,

now and for ever. Amen.

green leaf icon An Evening Collect

Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand

and the day is past;

be our companion in the way,

kindle our hearts, and awaken hope,

that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture

and the breaking of bread.

Grant this for the sake of your love.  Amen.
