Evening Prayer – 5 May 2016

May 5, 2016


I was startled by how enraged I got today. We had stopped on US Hwy 34 (Big Thompson Canyon) because some Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep were in the road. Some idiot in a pickup truck with Colorado plates got impatient and zoomed past me on the shoulder and literally forced the sheep off the road. Thankfully, my four-legged friends were not injured. But I know they were as shaken as Denise and I were. This prayer is for the driver and for our neighbors…

As I reflect on the flickering of the Vesper Lights 

I think of my beautiful four-legged friends and neighbors

I think about a man who cared not for anyone other than himself

In this light, I lift up my Evening Prayer

Circle us, Lord

Keep patience within

Keep irrational behavior without
Keep your creation safe

From foolish and impatient people
Lord, help us to see all of your creation as sister, brother
Lord, keep my own temper in check

That I may focus on serving you

On serving and loving all your creatures
Lord, in your mercy, hear my prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem 

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
