Night Prayer

In the life of a deacon Morning and Evening prayer are a normal part of every day.  One option open to deacons is Night Prayer.  Although not mandatory - it is a special way to end the day, especially when the day has been long or very exhausting.  Taking a few minutes before retiring for  the night gives a person a chance to do an end of day inventory of what was experienced that day.  It gives time to ask forgiveness for thing undone or done poorly and to thank God for blessing received.  Going to sleep after Night prayer is a great way to end the day.

Try it - you might like it.
