Evening Prayer – 24 December 2018

December 24, 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

A day filled with family, food, and laughter

Tonight a beautiful and meaning-filled worship

I think about all the places I have celebrated Christmas as a Padre

Each service is special in its own way

The location, the people… so many memories

Christmas Eve while deployed with the Air Force

The last Christmas Eve I heard Rev Morgan say at Midnight, And now it is Christmas

And of course the first Christmas with my sweetheart

All of those memories

All of the candles we lit

Thank you, Lord for the blessings of this Holy Season

Now, as I wind down and prepare for sleep

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
