O Eternal God, King of all creation who has kept me safe to attain this hour.
Forgive me the sins I've committed this day in thought, word and deed. And cleanse, O Lord, my humble soul from every stain of flesh and spirit.
Grant me to pass this night in peace, to rise from my bed and to praise your holy name all the days of my life.
And to vanquish the enemies, both corporeal and incorporeal, that contend against me.
Deliver me, O God, from the vain thoughts that stain me and from evil desires.
For Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit
Now and ever and unto ages of ages,
(an Orthodox evening prayer)
I'm putting my "the Way I See It" post up a day early because tomorrow morning, I'll be heading to the Women in Healing Ministries Conference at Holy Dormition Monastery in Rives Junction, Mi. I'm so looking forward to soaking in the services and lectures.
I found this theme to be challenging, what with the lack of sunlight available and all. It was a good challenging, though. I spent more time with my tripod than usual, that's for sure. Do you have any evening photos to share? If so, please link to your blog in the comment section below.
Next week's The Way I See It theme will be: Peace
Have a beautiful weekend!
