Evening Prayers of Jane Austen

Three are known today


Jane's Evening Prayers

"Look with mercy on the sins we
have this day committed and in
mercy make us feel them deeply,
that our repentance may be sincere,
and our resolutions steadfast of endeavoring
against the commission of such in future."

Evening Prayer 1 ( excerpt)

The image is one of the side
windows in Christ Church Cathedral,
where both Jane's father George and
brother James were ordained to the deaconate
