Evening Prayers: For Every Day of the Year By Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt

We want to turn to God at the end of each day, but often don’t find the words to express our deepest feelings and longing. This collection of prayers is one of the few daily devotionals especially intended for use in the evening.

Blumhardt’s words bespeak a certainty in God’s nearness. The peace that flows from them comes from an unshakeable conviction that God’s kingdom is indeed on the way. In stormy and challenging times like our own, most of us need this reassurance frequently, if not daily.

This seemed a bit dated to me, then I read that the author lived in the 1800's to early 1900's so that would explain it. It wasn't exactly up my ally but that's not to say others would not benefit from it. Just wasn't my cup of tea but I will be sure to pass it on to someone who would appreciate this piece of literature.
