Evening Prayer – 19 September 2017

September 19, 2017

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow 

On the world’s stage the posturing of madness

In our hearts, the reality hits close to home

Lord, how do we respond to the insanity?

Part of me wants to run away and hide

Part of me wants to lash out in harsh language

Yet your gentle Spirit of love speaks to my heart

Where there is hatred, let me sow love

Where there is injury, pardon

Where there is doubt, faith

Where there is despair, hope

Where there is darkness, light

Where there is sadness, joy

Lord, make me an instrument 

Not of hate or vitriol or violence

Not of exclusivism or bigotry

Make me an instrument of your peace 

Let your vision of love and peace expand

Let it be the default for our hearts and actions

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace 

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth 

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
