For some time the need for an occasional alternative to The Prayer of the Church has been expressed by a number of individuals and communities. This book is an attempt to respond to that need, whilst still keeping a general shape that corresponds to The Prayer of the Church. At the end there are some short readings and direct reflections on life experience. The format has emerged from use in Salesian communities, and much of the spirituality comes from the optimistic and gentle inspiration of St Francis de Sales. It challenges us to find God in the evening and grow in awareness of God’s abiding presence throughout the day.
