PRAYER: O God, we thank You for this holy Sunday. It is Your own day. It was honored and hallowed by You at the beginning. It was made doubly sacred by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It is full, too, of holy hopes, as it typifies to us the eternal Heavenly rest. We thank You for all that the day means to us in our personal lives, and for the blessings it has brought to our home. We thank You for its quiet rest, that we can cease from our week-day toil, and spend the day with You.
May You make this a day of real blessing to us. May Heaven’s windows be opened, and may holy blessings be sent down upon us. Bless our home life today. May we get closer together as a family. May our affection be sweetened. Fill our hearts with Your own love — and then we shall love each other as we ought. Bless our home conversation. May it be profitable to us, ministering grace to our hearts. May it be worthy of the day. Help us to shut out of our lives whatever is worldly or unworthy of You. May Your Spirit brood over our home, filling it with gentle, enriching influences.
Bless our worship in Your house. Go with us and help us in the public services to honor You. Open our eyes, that we may see wonderful things in Your word. Sanctify to us the worship and the instruction of the sanctuary. May we be so blessed in our hearts by waiting upon You that we shall be ready for good service all the week.
Help us also to be blessings to others today. Fill us so with Your Spirit, that every life which touches ours may receive blessing and good from us.
We ask all these Sunday blessings at Your hand, humbly, believingly, and joyously, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
EVENING PRAYER, BIBLE VERSE & QUOTE:
BIBLE VERSE: The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears; He delivers them from all their troubles.
— Psalm 34:17 (BSB)
QUOTE: Prayer is not so much an act as it is an attitude — an attitude of dependence, dependence upon God.

PRAYER: May Your peace be upon us, our Father, this sweet Sunday evening. The day has been to us like a quiet oasis in the world’s wilderness. We have enjoyed its restfulness. We have sat under Your shadow with great delight. We have drunk from the springs of water that flow from under Your throne. May You bless to us all Sunday’s enjoyments and privileges. May we be better able for work, because of the strength we have received while waiting only upon You.
Give us now our evening blessing. We long for more familiar acquaintance with You. Somehow we do not get to know You, as we desire to. We cannot see You with our mortal eyes, nor feel the touch of Your hand upon us, nor hear Your voice speaking to us, and we do not realize Your closeness to us. Help us to know You better. Reveal Yourself to us in Your word as we read it. May Your Spirit make You known to us. Make us more conscious of Your love for us. May we receive more spiritual life into our souls. Give us a deeper measure of Your joy, of Your peace, of Your love. May Jesus be in us, and may we be filled with all Your fullness.
We wait at Your feet this evening, to have our lives saturated, as it were, with Your grace. We desire to be like You, Lord Jesus, and we can become like You only by the transforming of our lives through Your indwelling. We hunger and thirst after righteousness, to have our characters made holy and good, like Yourself. You have promised to satisfy those who have this longing. Fill us, and satisfy our cravings. May we go into the new week, full of Jesus, and thus prepared to be a blessing to many. We wait now for your blessing. We ask it in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
