Evening Prayer – 4 May 2021

May 4, 2021
Are you going to share your food, Daddy?

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It has been a long and full day

A day of reflection

A day of worship preparation

A day for study

A day to simply Be Still

Lord, to you I raise

Wide and bright

Faith-filled eyes

You are my protection

Bring me home.

And receive my prayer

Sweet as incense smoke

Rising from my heart

Free of care.**

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…

**Collected Poems, from Thomas Merton: A Book of Hours, p. 112
