Prayer is never out of season: in summer and in winter its merchandize is precious. Prayer gains audience with heaven in the dead of night, in the midst of business, in the heat of noonday, in the shades of evening. In every condition, whether of poverty, or sickness, or obscurity, or slander, or doubt, your covenant God will welcome your prayer and answer it from His holy place.Charles Haddon Spurgeon Evening Prayer Sayings By Charles Haddon Spurgeon: Prayer is never out of season: in summer and in winter its merchandize is precious.
Daily prayers can help us keep on the path that leads to eternal life. We are very unlikely to stray if we offer a humble, simple prayer at least each morning and evening to express thanks and to seek divine guidance.Joseph B. Wirthlin Evening Prayer Sayings By Joseph B. Wirthlin: Daily prayers can help us keep on the path that leads to eternal life. We
My grandmother took me to church on Sunday all day long, every Sunday into the night. Then Monday evening was the missionary meeting. Tuesday evening was usher board meeting. Wednesday evening was prayer meeting. Thursday evening was visit the sick. Friday evening was choir practice. I mean, and at all those gatherings, we sang.Maya Angelou Evening Prayer Sayings By Maya Angelou: My grandmother took me to church on Sunday all day long, every Sunday into the
It is a good thing to let prayer be the first business in the morning and the last in the evening. Guard yourself against such false and deceitful thoughts that keep whispering, "Wait a while. In an hour or so I will pray. I must first finish this or that." Thinking such thoughts we get away from prayer into other things that will hold us and involve us till the prayer of the day comes to naught.Martin Luther Evening Prayer Sayings By Martin Luther: It is a good thing to let prayer be the first business in the morning
Each family prayer, each episode of family scripture study, and each family home evening is a brushstroke on the canvas of our souls. No one event may appear to be very impressive or memorable. But just as the yellow and gold and brown strokes of paint complement each other and produce an impressive masterpiece, so our consistency in doing seemingly small things can lead to significant spiritual results.David A. Bednar Evening Prayer Sayings By David A. Bednar: Each family prayer, each episode of family scripture study, and each family home evening is
The man who says his evening prayer is a captain posting his sentinels. He can sleep.Charles Baudelaire Evening Prayer Sayings By Charles Baudelaire: The man who says his evening prayer is a captain posting his sentinels. He can
He splashed into the water, his whole body, not with the reverent attitude of prayer, but with a desperate thirst; he buried his head under the water and drank deep, with his cheek against the cold stone of the riverbed, the water tumbling over his back, his calves. He drank and drank, lifted his head and shoulders above the water to gasp in the evening air, and then collapsed into the water again, to drink as greedily as before.
It was a kind of prayer, though, he realized as he emerged, freezing cold as the water evaporated from his skin in the breeze of the dark morning.
I am with you, he said to the Oversoul. I'll do whatever you ask, because I long for you to accomplish your purpose here.
Orson Scott Card Evening Prayer Sayings By Orson Scott Card: He splashed into the water, his whole body, not with the reverent attitude of prayer,
A verse of Scripture in the morning, may become a blessing for all the day. It may sing in the heart as a sweet song, from morning until evening. It may become a liturgy of prayer in which the soul shall voice its deepest needs and hungers-amid toils, struggles, and cares. It may be a guide through perplexing tangles, Gods voice whispering cheer, a comforter breathing peace in sorrow.J.R. Miller Evening Prayer Sayings By J.R. Miller: A verse of Scripture in the morning, may become a blessing for all the day.
Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.Mahatma Gandhi Evening Prayer Sayings By Mahatma Gandhi: Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
Like the patriarchs of old, those who profess to love God should erect an altar to the Lord wherever they pitch their tent. If ever there was a time when every house should be a house of prayer, it is now. Fathers and mothers should often lift up their hearts to God in humble supplication for themselves and their children. Let the father, as priest of the household, lay upon the altar of God the morning and evening sacrifice, while the wife and children unite in prayer and praise. In such a household Jesus will love to tarry.Ellen G. White Evening Prayer Sayings By Ellen G. White: Like the patriarchs of old, those who profess to love God should erect an altar
The Hindus are busy letting themselves be seen riding in Cadillacs instead of smearing themselves with sandalwood paste and bowing in front of Ganpati. The Moslems would rather miss evening prayer than the new Disney movie. The Buddhists think it's more important to take over in the name of Stalin and Progress than to meditate on the four basic sorrows. And we don't even have to mention Christianity or Judaism.Paul Bowles Evening Prayer Sayings By Paul Bowles: The Hindus are busy letting themselves be seen riding in Cadillacs instead of smearing themselves
We mustn't reserve communing with God just for morning and evening prayers, or for weekly worship service, or for when we feel burdened. The goal is to realize that every moment of our lives is a meditation. Allow yourself to marvel at the wonder of God's work all around us. Throughout your day, let the sun, a tree, a piece of fruit remind you that everything you could ever want has been provided and can be found right here on earth.Susan L. Taylor Evening Prayer Sayings By Susan L. Taylor: We mustn't reserve communing with God just for morning and evening prayers, or for weekly
In too many households prayer is neglected. Parents feel that they have no time for morning and evening worship. They cannot spare a few moments to be spent in thanksgiving to God for his abundant mercies - for the blessed sunshine and the showers of rain, which cause vegetation to flourish, and for the guardianship of holy angels. They have no time to offer prayer for divine help and guidance and for the abiding presence of Jesus in the household. They go forth to labor as the ox or the horse goes, without one thought of God or heaven. They have souls so precious that rather than permit them to be hopelessly lost, the Son of God gave his life to ransom them; but they have little more [144] appreciation of his great goodness than have the beasts that perish.Ellen G. White Evening Prayer Sayings By Ellen G. White: In too many households prayer is neglected. Parents feel that they have no time for
Begin your day with prayer, and make it so soulful that it may remain with you until the evening.Mahatma Gandhi Evening Prayer Sayings By Mahatma Gandhi: Begin your day with prayer, and make it so soulful that it may remain with

Parents must bring light and truth into their homes by one family prayer, one scripture study session, one family home evening, one book read aloud, one song, and one family meal at a time. They know that the influence of righteous, conscientious, persistent, daily parenting is among the most powerful and sustaining forces for good in the world. The health of any society, the happiness of its people, their prosperity, and their peace all find common roots in the teaching of children in the home.L. Tom Perry Evening Prayer Sayings By L. Tom Perry: Parents must bring light and truth into their homes by one family prayer, one scripture
Do you want to die like this?" Mother had asked, that night and every night since then.
Lynn's answer never changed. "No."
And Mother's response, their evening prayer. "Then you will have to kill.
Mindy McGinnis Evening Prayer Sayings By Mindy McGinnis: Do you want to die like this?" Mother had asked, that night and every night
Evening prayer
I spend my life sitting, like an angel in a barber's chair,
Holding a beer mug with deep-cut designs,
My neck and gut both bent, while in the air
A weightless veil of pipe smoke hangs.
Like steaming dung within an old dovecote
A thousand Dreams within me softly burn:
From time to time my heart is like some oak
Whose blood runs golden where a branch is torn.
And then, when I have swallowed down my Dreams
In thirty, forty mugs of beer, I turn
To satisfy a need I can't ignore,
And like the Lord of Hyssop and of Myrrh
I piss into the skies, a soaring stream
That consecrates a patch of flowering fern.
Arthur Rimbaud Evening Prayer Sayings By Arthur Rimbaud: Evening prayerI spend my life sitting, like an angel in a barber's chair,Holding a beer
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for new friends, and for this evening of fellowship. We ask that you guide our conversations, and that they'll be pleasing to you. We thank you for this food and ask your blessing on it, and on the hands that prepared it. In Jesus' name, AmenVirginia Smith Evening Prayer Sayings By Virginia Smith: Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for new friends, and for this evening of fellowship. We
I suppose there may be a branch president or a high councilor or an elders quorum president or a visiting teacher in the room who wants to know what it is we are to accomplish as Church members when we get together, even if it's only in a home evening group or an opportunity to pray together. Well, this passage indicates that it may have something to do with remembering each other. We all count. Everyone matters. We have a name and it's recorded and we need to remember that here. No one must get lost. "And their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the good word of God ... to keep them continually watchful unto prayer, relying alone upon the merits of Christ ... to fast and to speak with one another concerning the welfare of their souls ... to observe that there should be no iniquity among them"
what a great thought about meetings and what they are supposed to do, what a Sunday School class can be, what a scriptural discussion in an apartment can be.
Jeffrey R. Holland Evening Prayer Sayings By Jeffrey R. Holland: I suppose there may be a branch president or a high councilor or an elders
We build deep and loving family relationships by doing simple things together, like family dinner and family home evening and by just having fun together. In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e, time. Taking time for each other is the key for harmony at home. We talk with, rather than about, each other. We learn from each other, and we appreciate our differences as well as our commonalities. We establish a divine bond with each other as we approach God together through family prayer, gospel study, and Sunday worship.Dieter F. Uchtdorf Evening Prayer Sayings By Dieter F. Uchtdorf: We build deep and loving family relationships by doing simple things together, like family dinner
I was tired in the evening yesterday. I felt drained by the last days outer conflicts. I felt separated from life. Suddenly I heard the wind blowing through the trees outside my open window, whispering a silent and playful invitation: "Do you want to play? Do you want to join the dance?" This playful invitation again joined my heart and being with the Existential dance. I was again in a silent prayer and oneness with life.Swami Dhyan Giten Evening Prayer Sayings By Swami Dhyan Giten: I was tired in the evening yesterday. I felt drained by the last days outer
Go to bed before 8 p.m. Thieves generally break in between 12 and 2 a.m., so if you spend the evening in useless talk and go to bed late, you are likely to lose your valuables and your reputation as well. Save the firing and the light that will be wasted by staying up late and get up at four in the morning. Have a cold bath and say your prayers, and after you have dressed, give your orders for the day to your wife and children and retainers and so be ready to go on duty before 6 [a.m.]Hojo Soun Evening Prayer Sayings By Hojo Soun: Go to bed before 8 p.m. Thieves generally break in between 12 and 2 a.m.,
The Sunday morning service shows how popular your church is. The evening services show how popular your pastor is. Your private prayer time shows you how popular God is!Leonard Ravenhill Evening Prayer Sayings By Leonard Ravenhill: The Sunday morning service shows how popular your church is. The evening services show how
It was in His parting sorrow
that Jesus asked His disciples to remember Him; and never was entreaty of affection answered so; for ever since has His name been breathed in morning and evening prayers that none can count, and has brought down some gift of sanctity and peace on the anguish of bereavement, and the remorse of sin.
James Martineau Evening Prayer Sayings By James Martineau: It was in His parting sorrowthat Jesus asked His disciples to remember Him; and never
I wrote at the start that this was a record of hate, and walking there beside Henry towards the evening glass of beer, I found the one prayer that seemed to serve the winter mood: O God, You've done enough, You've robbed me of enough, I'm too tired and old to learn to love, leave me alone forever.Graham Greene Evening Prayer Sayings By Graham Greene: I wrote at the start that this was a record of hate, and walking there

Sometimes after an enjoyable family home evening, during a fervent family prayer, or when our entire family is at the dinner table on Sunday evening eating waffles and engaging in a session of lively, good-matured conversation, I quietly say to myself, 'If heaven is nothing more than this, it will be good enough for me!'Marlin K. Jensen Evening Prayer Sayings By Marlin K. Jensen: Sometimes after an enjoyable family home evening, during a fervent family prayer, or when our
The Women in Black are Israeli Jews who meet wall in Jerusalem. They meet every Friday, the Sabbath evening, and pray. They begin by singing Kaddish for all the Israelis killed in the fighting in Israel that week. When they are finished, they pause and read all the names. Then, they turn again to face the wall and sing Kaddish again, this time for all of Palestinians killed in the fighting that week, and they turn when they are finished and once again recite the litany of the names of those killed.Megan McKenna Evening Prayer Sayings By Megan McKenna: The Women in Black are Israeli Jews who meet wall in Jerusalem. They meet every
May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. PSALM 141:2Anne Graham Lotz Evening Prayer Sayings By Anne Graham Lotz: May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my
The knife hit deep, suddenly: "Jean Louise, your brother worried about your thoughtlessness until the day he died!" It was raining softly on his grave now, in the hot evening. You never said it, you never even thought it; if you'd thought it you'd have said it. You were like that. Rest well, Jem. She rubbed salt into it: I'm thoughtless, all right. Selfish, self-willed, I eat too much, and I feel like the Book of Common Prayer. Lord forgive me for not doing what I should have done and for doing what I shouldn't have done - oh hell.Harper Lee Evening Prayer Sayings By Harper Lee: The knife hit deep, suddenly: "Jean Louise, your brother worried about your thoughtlessness until the
The greatest element in life is not what occupies most of its time, else sleep would stand high in the scale. Nor is it what engrosses most of its thought, else money would be very high. The two or three hours of worship and preaching weekly has perhaps been the greatest signal influence on English life. Half an hour of prayer, morning or evening, every day, may be a greater element in shaping our course than all our conduct and all our thought.Peter Forsyth Evening Prayer Sayings By Peter Forsyth: The greatest element in life is not what occupies most of its time, else sleep
Aamir, recalling back to the idyllic days of his college youth, pictured himself once again sitting quietly on a familiar neighbourhood rooftop. He often enjoyed relaxing there, alone or with friends, while watching the colourful fluttering prayer flags on rooftop poles, especially in the warmth of an early evening breeze, as wispy clouds drifted against the jagged Himalayan backdrop. He has oft times wondered, ever since his childhood, if the prayers to the spirits of the dead, flying out from those slowly tattering rags, will ever really be answered. Perhaps it will be in another place, in another time, when we're living another life that we shall finally know. Aamir had calmly thought at the time. He was that sort of philosophical guy.Andrew James Pritchard Evening Prayer Sayings By Andrew James Pritchard: Aamir, recalling back to the idyllic days of his college youth, pictured himself once again
Hours of the day were named for the hours of prayer: matins around midnight; lauds around three A.M.; prime, the first hour of daylight, at sunrise or about six A.M.; vespers at six in the evening; and compline at bedtime.Barbara W. Tuchman Evening Prayer Sayings By Barbara W. Tuchman: Hours of the day were named for the hours of prayer: matins around midnight; lauds
To go to the synagogue with one's father on the Passover eve - is there in the world a greater pleasure than that? What is it worth to be dressed in new clothes from head to foot, and to show off before one's friends? Then the prayers themselves - the first Festival evening prayer and blessing.Sholom Aleichem Evening Prayer Sayings By Sholom Aleichem: To go to the synagogue with one's father on the Passover eve - is there
Soon there would be the evening call to prayer and all over Zinder people would be thanking Allah for the gift of one more day, of one more moment in which to live and breathe.Kathleen Hill Evening Prayer Sayings By Kathleen Hill: Soon there would be the evening call to prayer and all over Zinder people would
The evening prayer service began with a sharing of the bread and the wine. An everyday occurrence for most there, but for Jacob, this prayerful remembrance of their Lord's last supper with his disciples held a singular intensity. It had been a long while since he'd had this opportunity. He watched as the elders of their group stood before the table and Josiah again prayed, lifting the bread and the cup in turn as he blessed them, then broke the bread into small pieces for distribution. Jacob thought about the incongruity of the most revered in the group, who normally were the ones being honored and served, to now be carrying the plates of bread and the goblet of wine to each participant. He was reminded of the story he'd heard of Jesus kneeling to wash his disciples' dirty feet. A servant ... kept whispering through his mind as the words of the sacrament were recited. On the night when he was betrayed, Jesus took the cup ...Davis Bunn Evening Prayer Sayings By Davis Bunn: The evening prayer service began with a sharing of the bread and the wine. An

Since words elude me when I need them most, I learned long ago that I cannot count on QUALITY time with God when I want to pray. I need QUANTITY and regularity. Quality is not something I can predict. My husband, Andy, and I might schedule an elaborate evening out with candles and a gourmet meal, but there is no guarantee that we'll have a wonderful time together

Do you wish to be accepted for who you are? Do you wish to be loved without condition? Do you wish for people to welcome you, in spite of your flaws, in spite of your shortcomings, in spite of your mistakes? Then why do you insist on changing others? -Evening Prayer from the Holy Scrolls of Soeck, Eleventh Binding Third StanzaAaron Lee Yeager Evening Prayer Sayings By Aaron Lee Yeager: Do you wish to be accepted for who you are? Do you wish to be
A dense pall of fear hung over the entire group. Previously they had sensed that persecution might come. They had tried to prepare for it. Now it was real - raw and terrifying. If their enemies could do this to a man like Stephen, who sought only to serve his community and anyone in need, every one of them was in danger. All of them! Little groups huddled in whispered conversation. Mothers stayed home from evening prayer to shelter children. Men moved furtively, casting glances to each side as they hastened through the streets. The whole community was wrapped in a shroud of tension and uneasiness.Janette Oke Evening Prayer Sayings By Janette Oke: A dense pall of fear hung over the entire group. Previously they had sensed that
Courageous parenting does not always involve saying no. Parents also need courage to say yes to the counsel of modern-day prophets. Our Church leaders have counseled us to establish righteous patterns in our homes. Consider five fundamental practices that have the power to fortify our youth: family prayer, family scripture study, family home evening, family dinner together, and regular one-on-one interviews with each child.Larry R. Lawrence Evening Prayer Sayings By Larry R. Lawrence: Courageous parenting does not always involve saying no. Parents also need courage to say yes
Boast of Quietness
Writings of light assault the darkness, more prodigious than meteors.
The tall unknowable city takes over the countryside.
Sure of my life and death, I observe the ambitious
and would like to understand them.
Their day is greedy as a lariat in the air.
Their night is a rest from the rage within steel, quick to attack.
They speak of humanity.
My humanity is in feeling we are all voices of the same poverty.
They speak of homeland.
My homeland is the rhythm of a guitar, a few portraits, an old sword,
the willow grove's visible prayer as evening falls.
Time is living me.
More silent than my shadow, I pass through the loftily covetous multitude.
They are indispensable, singular, worthy of tomorrow.
My name is someone and anyone.
I walk slowly, like one who comes from so far away
he doesn't expect to arrive.
Jorge Luis Borges Evening Prayer Sayings By Jorge Luis Borges: Boast of QuietnessWritings of light assault the darkness, more prodigious than meteors.The tall unknowable city
It is useless to say you have no time. There is plenty of time, if men will employ it. Time may be short, but time is always long enough for prayer. Daniel had the affairs of a kingdom on his hands, and yet he prayed three times a day. David was ruler over a mighty nation, and yet he says, "Evening and morning and at noon will I pray" (Psalms 55:17). When time is really wanted, time can always be found.J.C. Ryle Evening Prayer Sayings By J.C. Ryle: It is useless to say you have no time. There is plenty of time, if

But before going to bed, he fell on his knees and prayed a long time. In his fervent prayer he did not beseech God to lighten his darkness but only thirsted for the joyous emotion, which always visited his soul after the praise and adoration, of which his evening prayer usually consisted. That joy always brought him light untroubled sleep.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Evening Prayer Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: But before going to bed, he fell on his knees and prayed a long time.
If you cannot recollect yourself continuously, do so once a day at least, in the morning or in the evening. In the morning make a resolution and in the evening examine yourself on what you have said this day, what you have done and thought, for in these things perhaps you have often offended God and those about you.Thomas A Kempis Evening Prayer Sayings By Thomas A Kempis: If you cannot recollect yourself continuously, do so once a day at least, in the
