Evening Prayer

 

Evening Prayer

Some friends came over tonight to sing/chant.

One of the first chants we did was something I heard at the Mercy Center in Burlingame, California:

“O Word of God, come into this space.
O Word of God, come send us your grace.
Open our minds, show us your truth.
Transform our lives anew.”

May all who are suffering be comforted.
May all be healed.
May all be happy and at peace.
Deep peace.

Weaving Golden Gauze for the Setting Sun

 

“There brews He beautiful water! And beautiful it always is! You see it glistening in the dewdrop; you hear it singing in the summer rain; you see it sparkling in the ice gem when the trees seem loaded with rich jewels!… dancing in the hailstorm, leaping, foaming, dashing…! See how it weaves a golden gauze for the setting sun, and a silvery tissue for the midnight moon! ”

-John Bartholomew Gough
