A special prayer at day's end

From the March 1994 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Many people pray in the morning with the hope of establishing their day in peace and harmony. A Christian Scientist does this. His prayer may acknowledge that God is the supreme power and governing Mind of the universe; that God is omnipresent and all-powerful Love; and that man is His spiritual image, the object of His all-inclusive love. Furthermore, through his study of Christian Science, he understands the Almighty to be a forgiving and merciful God who bestows nothing but good on His beloved child.

While it's wonderful to start our day off with prayer, it's helpful also to pray at day's end. Of course, we can pray any time we want to during the day or night. The Bible tells us that Daniel prayed three times a day. And who knows how many times through the day and night the Way-shower, Christ Jesus, prayed! His was the prayer "without ceasing" spoken of by the Apostle Paul in his first letter to the Thessalonians.

But prayer at the end of the day can have special meaning. Here at this evening hour we can sit quietly and look back over our day, assess our thoughts and actions to see if we actually lived out the professions and declarations of our morning prayer, determine where we fell short and where we succeeded.
