A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Friday 4/23

Most of my prayer posts depend on the phrases of a prayer for his or her substance.  Extra graphics and audio are meant to reinforce the written phrase.  Tonight, I give you a wide range of photos of Thomas and Jesus, most of them influenced by Caravaggio’s portray, The Incredulity of Thomas (just under this paragraph). Yearly, the gospel on the Sunday after Easter tells, the story of Thomas.  I hope these photos (some classical and a few very modern)
would possibly pique your curiosity and lead you to spend a while with this
coming Sunday’s texts and commentary. A daily Evening Prayer follows the photographs and – simply in case there’s an excessive amount of doubt on this publish – I’ve added a music to carry up our perception…

I am a believer, Lord – you recognize that –

however you additionally know my doubts, my misgivings,

my unsurety, my skepticism, my mistrust…

 

Typically my doubt leads me to probe and make clear

what I wasn’t certain of, what I did not perceive,

what I struggled with

however typically my doubt leads me to confusion,

uncertainty and a form of lonely worry

that leaves me questioning who I’m, 

the place I am going and who goes with me on my method…

I imagine, Lord: assist my unbelief…

Give me the grace to discover my doubt,

trusting your Spirit to guide and information me

to mild, to knowledge, to fact

and most of all, Lord,

to you…

 

Shield me, Lord, whereas I am awake

and watch over me after I sleep

that awake I would hold watch with you

and asleep, relaxation in your peace…

 

Amen.

 

 

I imagine for each drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I imagine that someplace within the darkest night time
A candle glows
I imagine for everybody who goes astray
Somebody will come to indicate the best way
I imagine
I imagine
I imagine above the storm the smallest prayer
Will nonetheless be heard
I imagine that somebody within the nice someplace
Hears each phrase
Each time I hear a new child child cry
Or contact a leaf
Or see the sky
Then I do know why
I imagine
Each time I hear a new child child cry
Or contact a leaf
Or see the sky
Then I do know why
I imagine
