A Collect for Evenings

O God, breather of the evening breeze, painter of western sky, you whisper to frog and cicada and whippoorwill, "sing!" And the evening is filled with song. You walked with Adam in the cool of the day until he hid when you came looking for him. Still we hide, and still we hear your footsteps. Grant that we, moved by your evening song, will answer and walk with you in the cool air and warm colors, an invitation given us by your son, our savior, Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and forever.
