As Sunday slips away, my mind turns towards a new week, where God meets me. Be with me Lord, this evening, prepare me to recognize your presence, in the normal and novel events of a new week.

Heavenly Father God, stay with me as I begin a new, untouched week. As I unwrap the gift of each day, help me to trust you in all that I find, and give thanks for the privilege of living in your presence. I ask this through Christ, the Lord of all time, and my companion on each day’s journey. A Blessing for Family and Friends Bless them with rest to renew them in strength and faith. Guide them in the week that lies before them. Draw them close to yourself each day. Listen to our prayer tonight in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
