Evening Prayer, also called Vespers is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfills Jesus’ command to “pray constantly” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.
Evening Prayer gives thanks for the day just past and makes an evening sacrifice of praise to GodPsalm 141:1
