Evening Prayer – 9 November 2018

November 9, 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

A long day of travel is complete

Back home in Colorado after vacation

A week of sunshine, water, and friendship

A time to rest and relax

Tomorrow begins Armistice/Veterans Day commemorations

Tonight is the 80th Anniversary of Kristallnacht

The horror of humankind’s inhumanity towards humankind

Tomorrow we lay to rest a dear parishioner

Sunday is the Centennial of the Armistice

So much conflicting emotion in a world that today has gone mad

What keeps coming to mind is this prayer

Most Holy God, hear our prayers for all who strive for peace, and all who yearn for justice. Help us, who today remember the cost of war, to work for a better tomorrow; and, as we commend to you lives lost in terror and conflict, bring us all, in the end, to the peace of your presence.

Lord God, we pledge ourselves to serve you and all humanity, in the cause of peace, for the relief of want and suffering. Guide us by your Spirit; give us wisdom; give us courage; give us hope; and keep us faithful now and always.

Lord in your mercy, hear my humble and heartfelt prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
