Sunset Prayer

sunset prayer

From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised. (Psalm 113:3)

Prayer:

Dear God,

Your name is to be praised for the beauty of each sunset. As your sun sets in the sky it glows with brilliant colors, and it highlights the surrounding clouds. Along the horizon, it conveys its warmth to everyone watching. As it sinks deeper, it shines its light upon everything you have created. Your handiwork is marvelous and most worthy of praise, for it is indeed a work of art.

Every sunset is a thing of beauty. The clouds convey new colors, the sky provides the perfect background and the ground supports it all. As you gaze upon it, it takes your breath away; you don’t want to move, in case you miss something. Your handiwork is marvelous, for you create good things, and you love your creation. Thank you for being so generous in expressing your love, so that we can all enjoy it.

Amen.
