Evening Prayer – 7 April 2017

April 7, 2017

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

As I contemplate a day filled with activity

As I contemplate a world seemingly gone mad

Lord, where are you in the midst of it all I wonder

I am here in the midst of the chaos

I am with the orphans, the widows, the parents burying their children

I am with those suffering the ravages of depression and hopelessness

I am with those who wander in the darkness

I am with those who are paralyzed by fear

I am with my children, every one of them

I am with the Muslim, the Jew, the Christian

I am with the religiously marginalized

Why? Because they are my children

Why? Because I love each one of them

I weep because they can’t seem to love each other

I weep because they can’t seem to love themselves

Lord, out of your pain

Lord, out of your anguish

Lord, out of your heart flows love

Lord, out of your heart flows forgiveness

Lord, out of your heart flows redemption

Lord, in your mercy, teach us to be more like you

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth

 

 

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
