Evening Prayer – 10 November 2016

November 10, 2016

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow 

A full day of Discernment and sharing

Wonderful fellowship around the table

Yet the majority of us in this class still wonder

We wonder and we comfort those who are scared

The hate that has been spewed in the name of christianity 

Vileness so contrary to love

The love of the one who did not qualify which neighbor to love

They are tired of being told to get over it

Lord, you never said it would be easy

Never said it would be easy to love those who despise and hate us

You never said it would be easy

Never said it would be easy to pray for the persecutors

Yet you have said your strength is sufficient for us

Lord, help my sisters and brothers to embrace that strength in the midst of hate

Lord, may we take the higher road and love

May we love as you first loved us

May we do justice

May we love mercy

May we walk humbly with you

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth 

The Earth you created

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

  1. Amen, Michael! What a beautiful, cruciform-shaped tree with such gnarled roots and craggy exterior. It speaks to me of being rooted in Christ, linked to Him with all our messiness, yet growing strong and vibrant because the sap of His life pulses through us. Bless you, friend. ❤
