Evening Prayer {written by Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt}

The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You. -Psalm 9:9-10

Lord our God, we look to You in our many needs, in the distress of our hearts, in the anguish of the whole world. We beseech You, let light come to Your people everywhere on earth to bring them Your help and Your victory. Remember the wretched, the sick, the poor. Let Your living strength come to them so that they can bear their sufferings and hold out joyfully to the end. Remember us all, O Lord our God, for we all need You. We are weak and poor and cannot go forward alone. Your Spirit must help us. May the Savior come to us, and may His grace and His power be born in our hearts.

Amen
