Evening Prayer – 23 November 2018

November 23, 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

Today was Black Friday

So many worshipping at the altar of Consumerism

Others chose to spend it outdoors in the real world

We chose to spend the day resting

With a hectic life and schedule

Life can often overwhelm

Spiritually and Physically worn out

Such gifts as we had today are a blessing

As we rest and seek renewal

I pray for those who have no opportunities for rest

For those fighting fires

For those working the midnight shift in hospitals

For those patrolling the highways and byways

For those who seek refuge from violence and oppression

For those who are not welcomed

For the dispossessed and forgotten

For those who struggle in the Valley of the Shadows

For all of your children, I lift this humble prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
