Like yesterday's Psalm, Psalm 4 has a particular focus on the evening. The

eighth verse reads,

"I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie

down in safety."

My friend, Matt, wrote a song of evening prayer inspired by this Psalm. If

you bump into any PC (USA) Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) from the past 15

years or so, they will know this song. The YAV program is a program of our

denomination providing young adults "a year of service, for a lifetime of

change." Before that year of service begins, all the new YAVs gather

together at the Stony Point Center, NY for a time of orientation. I learned

this song at Stony Point in September 2011 and it has become a go to

evening prayer ever since.

I encourage you to take a listen to it now..and to listen to it again before you

go to sleep this evening.

Let us pray...

God of the morning, God of the evening, we thank you for the day and for

the night. You are our shelter, our rest, and our hope. In these days that are

filled with questions, may we breathe deeply knowing that you are walking

with us each step of the way. In the name of love we pray, Amen.
