Night Prayer Service
Church of the Heavenly Rest invites you to a service of quiet music and contemplation, joining hearts and voices in  the centuries-old tradition of Night Prayer. Let the softness of candlelight and the beauty of singing envelop you each Sunday evening from 7:00pm-7:30pm in the Chapel of the Beloved Disciple. Night Prayer, the last office of the day for monastic communities, is the perfect way to both end the day and begin the week nourished and refreshed.
Night Prayer begins on Sunday, December 1.

Need a Prayer

Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
