Some words as a poem that say Evening Prayer is a comfort and comforting...

Evening Prayer is practiced in the Church I attend, and I find it an intimate way of worship. Some people call this time of prayer The Office, or the Work of God. In my poem you'll find the statement that it is both a comfort, and comforting.

"Comfort in Evening Prayer"
by Peter Menkin

The familiar Church is open,

and a regular comes to Evening Prayer:

delicious, memorable ways,

words that comfort.

Comfortable words bring

the sense of God.

We offer together"yes".

In their homes, others hear

the silence of the hour,

not knowing yet knowing.

United in prayer, many say

the Office in solitude.

"Seek him who made the Pleiades

and Orion."
