Evening Prayer – 2 July 2021

July 2, 2021

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

It has been a good day for reading

It has been a good day for reflection

The reading and reflection haven’t been easy

As I consider the sins of this nation

As I consider the sins of my ancestral homeland north of us

As I consider the indigenous people of this land

My heart breaks with sorrow and shame

As this weekend continues, Lord

May you teach us about compassion and unity instead of hatred and nationalism

May we see this land as a land for all of your children

May the vision of Woody Guthrie be our vision today

This Land Is Your Land (Springsteen & Seeger)

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…
