How to pray the evening prayer;Scheme for ten minutes at the end of the day.
Review the day.
Run over your day backwards in the recollected presence of God, and you'll almost certainly have a double need.
Confess your sins to God.
Things will come to your mind which will not be pleasant to recall....
A failure here; something not strictly truthful; and missed opportunities for doing good…
Deal with each thing separately.
ITEMIZE your sins. Don't bundle your beastliness or pettiness together in one of those all inclusive phrases; "Forgive me all my sins."
But DO feel remorseful over them in their separateness, claiming forgiveness in our Lord Jesus Christ, and have a greater wariness in the future.
Make restitution where you can.
Every evening will bring its occasion for GRATITUDE to God - for morning prayers answered, and for help through the day.
Let the day close with a warm, inward awareness that God has, indeed, been WITH you all through the day.
Before sleeping, COMMIT yourself to God again; "Father into Your hands I commend my spirit."
