Stay with Us

Lord Jesus,
stay with us, for it is toward evening
and the day is now far spent.
Be our companion on 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.

Evensong Prayer

Lord God,
your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ,
triumphed over the powers of death
and prepared for us our place in the new Jerusalem.
Grant that we who give thanks for his resurrection
may praise you in that city
of which he is the light;
and where he lives and reigns
for ever and ever.
Amen.

Visit this place, O Lord, we pray,
and drive far from it the snares of the enemy;
