1.27. 2020 Evening Prayer Monday

I falter where I firmly trod,

            And falling with my weight of care

            Upon the great world’s altar-stairs

That slope thro’ darkness up to God,

I stretch lame hands of faith, and grope….

Eternal God, grant me, I pray Thee, a clearer vision of Thy truth, a greater faith in Thy power, and a more confident assurance of Thy love.

When the dark way seems dark before me, grant me grace to walk trustingly:

When the distance is clouded, let me rejoice that at least the next step it plain;

When what Thou art is most hidden from my eyes, let me still hold fast to what Thou          dost command:

What I lack in faith let me repay in love.

O infinite God, I thank Thee for Christ, Thou Light of Light,

I thank Thee that in seeing Christ we see Thee,

And if still I cannot find Thee, let me confess my sins and seek Thy pardon in Jesus Christ my Lord.    Amen
