Evening Prayer – 17 April 2021

April 17, 2021

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It has been a long day of study and writing

It has been a day of prayer and reflection

These words from Thomas Merton’s poem “Fire Watch” echo in my heart

The night, O My Lord, is a time of freedom.

I sit in darkness. I sit in human silence. I begin to hear the eloquent night.

In the darkness may we find rest

In the darkness may we find refreshment

In the darkness may we be surrounded by your loving presence

In the darkness may we finally be still

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…
