Evening Prayer – 25 May 2017

May 25, 2017

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow 

A full day of wandering and reflecting

A day spent in the midst of your wondrous creation, Lord

A day spent with the Desert Abbas and Ammas

Reflecting on their struggles to serve you

Reflecting on the wisdom they share with us

It isn’t about ourselves

It isn’t about self-glorification

It is about humble, selfless service

Lord, teach us to look beyond ourselves

Lord, show us the way to servant leadership 

Lord, teach us to see you in the eyes of others

Lord, draw us together as one

In your mercy, Lord, hear this prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth 

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

    This is exactly what the Spirit is showing me presently. I’m in a crash course of getting over myself and my judgments, and getting on with gratitude and loving service. Blessings to you and Denise as you walk in The Way. ❤

  2. Amen, my friend! Always a timely, inspiring word here. Bless you, Michael. 💜
