A prayer for the Sabbath eve.
Almighty Father,—
I thank Thee with all my heart
for having appointed for us this Sabbath Eve.
It is a time,
when the troubles of the week being ended,
I may rejoice and be glad
in Thy Holy Name.
O Lord,
make me always love and honour the Sabbath Eve.
Let me feel the influence of its sweet peace,
and let me never do anything to profane it.
I am in the midst of my family;
with them I pray and sing unto Thee.
With them I approach Thy throne
and humbly ask for Thy blessing.
O Lord,
turn me not away empty.
Grant that Thy fatherly love
may enter into my soul,
and that I may feel the full strength and courage
which comes from perfect trust in Thee.
Lord, Who art the God of truth,
clear away mists from my eyes.
Let me see life as it really is,
and not try to walk in a vain show.
It is on the Sabbath Eve,
more perhaps than at any other time,
that I feel a great longing to commune with Thee.
Do not let me waste these blessed moments,
and, O God of Light,
cause Thy countenance to shine upon me
and I shall have peace.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before Him with rejoicing. (Psalms 100:2)
So shalt Thou find favour and good repute
in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:4)
