Evening Prayer – 9 September 2019

September 9, 2019

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

An emotionally powerful day today

Examining with Head and Heart the horrors of our history

The graphic intensity of humanity’s inhumanity towards one another

It was a lot to absorb

The stories will tear your heart out

As a nation we must mourn

As white people with privilege

We must confess our complicity

My heart is uneasy tonight

As it should be

Lord, heal shattered hearts and lives

Help us to Do Justice, Love Mercy/Kindness, and Walk Humbly with You

Help us to make the words of Dr King our calling

True Peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.

Dona Nobis Pacem et in Terra

Grant Us Peace on Earth

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…

  1. Utterly gut-wrenching and horrifying. And it is sickening to see this horror raising its head again in this country.
