Evening Prayer – 30 May 2016

May 30, 2016


The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker 

A day of refreshment and relaxation

After a full weekend of ministry

Yet in the midst of it all, I remember

Memorial Day… Not about holidays or BBQ

A time to pause and remember

Those who died in the service of this nation

As I ponder the tragic loss of life

I say a silent prayer

My own heart believes the best way to honor the dead is to work so that the words of the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled — “they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” (Isaiah 4:2)

With this in mind, I lift my Evening Prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem 

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre as he reflects, wonders, mourns, and prays…
