Evening Prayer – 27 June 2017

June 27, 2017

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow 

Tonight’s walk was an opportunity to reflect

This Mallard was snoozing along the path

Yet while he snoozed, many are concerned

It seems that healthcare is the realm of the few

It seems that profits are more important than people

Lord, my heart is heavy tonight 

Jesus calls us to stand for the poor and the oppressed

Yet some who say they are christians, don’t seem to care

Help those who are Christ-followers to speak

To speak in the spirit of Jeremiah

“But listen now to this word that I speak in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people. The prophets who preceded you and me from ancient times prophesied war, famine, and pestilence against many countries and great kingdoms. As for the prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of that prophet comes true, then it will be known that the LORD has truly sent the prophet.” (Jeremiah 28:7-9)

“Thus says the Lord: Act with justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor anyone who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the alien, the orphan, and the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place.” (Jeremiah 22:3)

Lord, help us to preach the Gospel as Francis calls us to do

At all times, preach the Gospel

If necessary, use words

Lord, in your mercy, hear this prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace 

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
