Evening Prayer – 31 December 2016

December 31, 2016

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow 

As I look back on the year, Lord

Many moments of terror and hopelessness 

Many moments of joy and happiness

As we ring in the New Year, terror attacks happen in Turkey 

As we pray for peace, families mourn

Just as long ago Joseph, Mary, & Jesus became political refugees

Fleeing by night to save their lives 

So also, many are seeking for a place of peace in the midst of the insanity

As we ring in the New Year with very dear friends 

We pray for those who suffer and mourn

For this world which you created 

We lift up our humble and heartfelt prayer

Grant Us YOUR Peace, O Lord

Let YOUR light shine in the darkness

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra 

Grant Us Peace on Earth 
A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

    To ask forgiveness on behalf of those who in their ignorance are oblivious of their wrongdoing, and those who in their arrogance are aware of their misdeeds, but rejoice in them and so would never think to seek forgiveness; to meet each day with hope, each situation with courage, and each person with discernment, honesty, and focused presence; to give thanks for all blessings of Heaven and Earth; and to align myself wholeheartedly with those, like yourself, who seek the ways of Love, Grace, Peace, and Justice, and are intent upon contributing to the healing, transformation, and redemption of the Earth and All of God’s Children…this is my path into 2017. I am blessed and happy to call you my Brother.
