Evening Prayer – 19 May 2021

May 20, 2021

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It was a good day of ministry and reflection

It was also a day to contemplate your calling, Lord

At times ministry is incredibly challenging

Yet you promise to be with us

You invite us to simply Be Still

In the words of Thomas Merton:

Let there be a place somewhere in which you can breathe naturally, quietly, and not have to take your breath in continuous short gasps. A place where your mind can be idle, and forget its concerns, descend into silence, and worship the Father in secret. There can be no contemplation where there is no secret. (Thomas Merton: A Book of Hours, p. 137… originally from New Seeds of Contemplation, pp. 82-83)

I thank you Lord for that secret place to simply Be Still and know that you are God

Be Still and know

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…
