Evening Prayer – 21 September 2019 – Lord, Teach Us to Pray

September 21, 2019

Often times when we are hiking in Rocky, we are overwhelmed by the wonder and majesty of God’s creation. At such times, the silent wonder is a prayer of thanksgiving and awe.

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

Lord, you have taught us to pray

It isn’t a formulaic or rote response

It is a prayer from the heart

It is about seeking enough for today

It is about peace for today

It is about energy to serve you

Lord help us to serve you

To serve with energy, intelligence, imagination, and love

To serve without counting the cost

Lord equip us for your service

Teach us to be humble and selfless

Teach us to serve like Jesus

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
