Evening Prayer – 16 July 2018

July 16, 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

What a day, Lord

I cannot even begin to fathom

When I swore an oath in 1985

I was a young Chaplain Candidate, Second Lieutenant

For 26 years I served

Retiring as a Chaplain, Lieutenant Colonel

I never contemplated how far we would fall

Protect and Defend the Constitution

Against all enemies, foreign and domestic

I fear for our nation

I fear for our world

How you must groan deep within, Lord

Greed

Corruption

Narcissism

Fear

Hatred

So much, Lord, so much

Out of the depths I cry to you

Lord, hear this humble prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
