Open Our Hearts ~ Evening Prayer

Prayer opens our hearts

Prayer opens the heart to God, and it is the means by which the soul, though empty, is filled by God.
John Buchan

Our evening prayer reminds us to open our hearts to God with everything.

When I pray in the evenings, I often come to God weary, exhausted, and mentally worn out. My day is nearly over, and so many issues jumped into my cart, needing attention. But when I begin talking to Him, I find that sweet, familiar intimacy I long for, because I know without a doubt He hears every single word of mine.

O Lord, I call upon you; hasten to me!
    Give ear to my voice when I call to you!
Let my prayer be counted as incense before you,
    and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!

Psalm 143:1-2

While I have an open door of conversation all day long with the Lord, I still like to spend purposeful time with Him in the evenings before sleep. I look forward to it but don’t think I have ever said amen because I always fall asleep before I’m finished. He must be smiling because He knows me so well.

Of all things, guard against neglecting God in the secret place of prayer.

William Wilberforce
