Evening Prayer – 9 April 2019

April 9, 2019

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It was a wonderful day with dear friends

It was also a day of difficult news

Two beloved friends in Hospice Care

A friend and co-worker in ministry’s husband died

Even though I walk through the Valley of the Shadows

I know your presence, Lord

Mom would have been 86 today

I miss her so

Through all of this I thank you, Lord

For the sacred calling to walk with so many

Through the Valley of the Shadows

Let your light and your love shine, Lord

Guide us all through the difficult times

In your mercy, hear this humble prayer

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

  1. Vespers 

    The sun slides down
    the gap between houses
    its amber reach crosses the grass
    toward me, shadow of the elder tree
    has grown long and I remember
    under the mulberry spectacle of sky
    how everything I love must end:
    this cup of tea with steam ascending,
    the dog curled right against me,
    your warm hands over mine,
    how this sweet leaving of day 
    makes me draw the world 
    as close as possible.
