Evening Prayer – 29 May 2017

May 29, 2017

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow 

As the day came to a close

As we relaxed in the comfort of our home

My thoughts turned to all of the casualties of war

The military members who have died

The families of those who have died

The people caught in the middle of the war zone

Those on all sides of these conflicts

Those who bear the deep scars of war

And once more, Isaiah speaks to me

Dream, gentle Padre, of the day

When swords are beaten into plowshares

When spears are beaten into pruning hooks 

When nations no longer lift up swords against each other

When we study war no more

Not only dream that dream

Seek to bring it to fruition as you follow

As you follow the Prince of Peace

The one who said love all of your neighbors

And so, once more, we lift our Evening Prayer 

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth 

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
