A Quote by Jacob Boehme on love and prayer

An Evening Prayer

*When we have finished our daily employment, and are going to rest.*

I Lift my heart to thee, O God, thou Fountain of Eternal Life, and give thee thanks through Jesus Christ thy beloved Son, our Lord and Saviour, for having protected and preserved me this day from all mischief that might have befallen me.  I commend to thy disposal my condition and employment, together with the work of my hands, and humbly repose them on thee.  So fill my soul with spirit, that neither that grand enemy the devil, nor any other evil influence or desire, may find harbour therein.  Let my mind only delight in thee in thy temple, and let thy good angel stay with me, that I may rest safely in thy power, and under thy protection.  Amen.

Jacob Boehme (1575 - 1624)
