An evening feast for the soul and mind
Evening Prayers is a daily devotional that is intended to prompt the reader to reflection upon God throughout each passing day.
Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt was a pastor, author and politician who dwelt on the Kingdom of God and that dwelling can be sifted through and observed through this daily devotional.
As mentioned earlier, the intention of the devotionals are to return your mind to your Creator for the purpose of reflection upon the passing days. For example:
“The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea, and it will obey you.”
“Father in heaven, thank you for the many ways you strengthen us and reveal your life to us. We thank you for all your protection, also for your protection of our faith and hope. Grant that your Spirit may penetrate us more and more, enabling us to be your witnesses in this evil and unhappy world. May your Spirit give us hope for this life and for the life to come. Amen.”
After your full day of work, hobbies, trials, blessings, rest, travel, etc…this devotional will help point you back to the fullness of your day and the Hand of God upon it. However, not all the prayers are specifically designed for daily reflection, but reflection as a whole, on who God is and what He has done and is doing in your life.
Each devotional is dated and includes a scripture passage (in a reader-friendly translation) and paragraph of prayer. Each page has more than enough space underneath the prayer for your own writing, prayer and reflection.
I would not recommend this devotional to supplant your daily time in God’s Word but it would be good as an added supplement to help wind down your day and refocus.
I received this book from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review and I was not required to write a positive review.
