Evening Prayer – 2 August 2016

August 2, 2016


The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker 

In our Rocky Mountain home

It is easy to forget the cares of the world

The beauty of your creation Lord, soothes the soul

Yet we are reminded daily of the pain

Reminded of the heartache

Reminded of the hatred & fear-mongering 

Reminded of the bigotry & misogyny 

Reminded of the homophobia

Lord, it is tempting to stay secluded in our mountain home

Yet you call us to prayer and action

Show us ways that we can spread Your message

A message of hope, love, mercy, justice, & peace

Lord help us to be your difference

Help us to be your light

Help us to be your instruments 

Until the day when justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like an everflowing stream

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer 

Dona Nobis Pacem 

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
