A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Sunday 4/24


(On Sundays, Evening Prayer takes its inspiration from a component of the day’s mass. Yearly on the Sunday after Easter we learn the story of Doubting Thomas (a.okay.a. Believing Thomas).  Within the Christian life, the other of doubt (its antidote, its decision) is religion, not proof.  Because the scripture and track inform us, We stroll by religion and never by sight.   Let’s pray…

We stroll by religion, Lord, not by sight

    and so we pray:

for the present of religion
   for  all who search it…

for the strengthening of religion

    in those that doubt…

 

for deeper religion 

   in tougher instances…

 

for religion to assist us make it 

   day after day and thru the evening…

for these whose religion
   is shaken or damaged…

for the religion to behave

    on our beliefs…

for the knowledge of religion
   to discern the reality…

for prudent religion

    to form our phrases and deeds… 

for the grace we’d like

    to share our religion with others…  

Lord, grant us the religion we’d like

           to comply with the gospel,

           to like our neighbor,

           to reside the reality,

           to do what’s simply, 

           to like those that hate us,

           to belief in you,

           to reside in hope

           to work for peace,

           to behave with justice

           and to comply with wherever the Spirit leads…

 

We stroll by religion and never by sight

    so grant us, Lord, the grace see

        what solely religion reveals…


Shield us, Lord whereas we’re awake

and watch over us once we sleep

that awake, we would preserve watch with you

and asleep, relaxation in your peace…


Amen.

 

 

The second verse of this track contains Thomas’ response

upon assembly the risen Jesus: “My Lord and my God!”

 

 


 

We stroll by religion and never by sight
No gracious phrases we hear
Of him who spoke as none e’er spoke
But we consider him close to

 
We might not contact his palms and aspect
Or comply with the place he trod
But in his promise we rejoice
And cry “My Lord and God”

 
Assist then, oh Lord, our unbelief
And should our religion abound
To name on you if you end up close to
And search the place you’re discovered

 
That when our life of religion is completed
In realms of clearer mild
We might behold you as you’re
In full and infinite sight

 
We stroll  by religion and never by sight
No gracious phrases we hear
Of him who spoke as none e’er spoke
But we consider him close to
