A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Monday 10/31



It is Halloween, Lord!

 

Time to ponder the costumes we don the remainder of the yr,

after we outfit and costume ourselves

    to be somebody or one thing we’re not

    – or to cover the individuals we’re…

A few of our costumes dangle in our closets,

the day-to-day clothes we put on

    to make ourselves extra engaging,

    to hide or spotlight the form we’re in, 

    to point out that we’re up with the instances

    or to distance ourselves from fads and tendencies…

However you, Lord, care little 

    for type and couture, colour and minimize, 

    outdated or new, scorching or not,

    designer label or off the rack,

 

You look as a substitute to our hearts

and are happy while you discover them bare:

    uncovered to your therapeutic contact,

    laid naked so that you can swaddle us

    in your kindness, compassion and love…

As St. Paul reminds us, Lord:

    Dress ourselves in heartfelt mercy

        and  placed on clothes of gentleness,

            humility and persistence…

 

Strip me of all my pretense, Lord, 

    my want to be who I am not;

make me content material to be and grow to be

    the particular person I am made and usual to be…

 

Dress me in peace and outfit me 

    for the work that is mine to do

        for love of you and of my neighbor:

gown my coronary heart in a garment of affection

    and garb me in grace and peace…

Shield me, Lord, whereas I am awake

and watch over me whereas I sleep

that awake, I’d hold watch with you

and asleep, relaxation in your peace…

Amen.

 

the textual content from St. Paul, quoted above)  

 




Since you are chosen 

Known as to be holy 

As a result of you’re the Lord’s beloved
 

You need to dress your self with kindness
 

With heartfelt mercy 

Within the meekness of humility

 

 

So bear you now with each other
 

And forgive because the Lord’s forgiven you

Over all these virtues

Bind all of them collectively

Within the Love of our Lord Jesus

 

Over all these virtues

Bind all of them collectively

Within the Love of our Lord Jesus

Over all these virtues

Bind all of them collectively

Within the Love of our Lord Jesus
