The Evening of Life

Monday of the Twelfth Week in Kingdomtide
Isaiah 38

Nick reads the one-minute introduction.

Autumn is the evening time of the year, as the earth “dies” in winter. The colder days and diminishing light continue to draw us into that inwardness which is the gift of autumn. Separate time this evening to review again the psalm-like prayer of King Hezekiah. It is the “evening” of his life, soon to end. His words flow with the wisdom of the Holy Spirit as a model for your prayer.

Hezekiah discovers images in the movement of his prayer. If you were to place yourself on your death-bed, what images of your own life would the Spirit give you? Even though you may only be imagining this hour as your last, are you sure of yet another whole hour when the clock chimes?

Mondays are dedicated to the Prophets
In the season of Kingdomtide this year, we read Isaiah chapters 28 to 39.
