The Prayers

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Daily Office - Daily Evening Prayer - The Lessons

The people stand or kneel.

The Lord be with you.
And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.

Officiant and People:

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Then follows one of these sets of Suffrages


V - O Lord, show thy mercy upon us;
R - And grant us thy salvation.

V - Endue thy ministers with righteousness;
R - And make thy chosen people joyful.

V - Give peace, O Lord, in all the world;
R - For only in thee can we live in safety.

V - Lord, keep this nation under thy care;
R - And guide us in the way of justice and truth.

V - Let thy way be known upon earth;
R - Thy saving health among all nations.

V - Let not the needy, O Lord, be forgotten;
R - Nor the hope of the poor be taken away.

V - Create in us clean hearts, O God;
R - And sustain us with thy Holy Spirit.


That this evening may be holy, good, and peaceful,
We entreat thee, O Lord.

That thy holy angels may lead us in paths of peace and goodwill,
We entreat thee, O Lord.

That we may be pardoned and forgiven for our sins and offenses,
We entreat thee, O Lord.

That there may be peace to thy Church and to the whole world,
We entreat thee, O Lord.

That we may depart this life in thy faith and fear, and not be condemned before the great judgment seat of Christ,
We entreat thee, O Lord.

That we may be bound together by thy Holy Spirit in the communion of Blessed Mary ever-virgin, (of Saint  ) and of all thy saints, entrusting one another and all our life to Christ,
We entreat thee, O Lord.
