An Evening Prayer

"Years ago, I was head cook at a retirement home. One of the residents gave this evening prayer, and I taught it to my family. We still join hands and say it together," relates Doloris Novotny, West Bend, Wisconsin.

Dear Father, as the evening shadows lengthen around us one by one,
let us thank Thee for Thy goodness, for the day which now is done.
Let this mealtime bind us closer as a loving family.
May it be a time of blessing, when we pause to think of Thee. Amen.
