4. Evening Prayer

O God of all love, when will we truly believe that you do love us beyond our understanding? Each day tells it to the other as each offers us Your precious gifts. Each night would speak it anew to us as You give us rest and renewal. But the greatest witness to Your love we hear constantly from Your Word. There You tell us that Your Son shed His blood for us that we might be cleansed from all our sin. Now we can call you "Father". Now we can stand before You in the purity of Christ's righteousness and in the certainty of being Your children. Let Your love in Christ be the power of our lives and the joys of all our days. We thank You that we can lie down in peace and entrust ourselves to Your never-failing love. We rest in Jesus' name. Amen.

5. Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest all my sins because of your just punishments, but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to sin no more, and to avoid the near occasions of sin.
