A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Sunday 9/4

On Sundays, Evening Prayer will give attention to a component from the day’s celebration of Mass. Tonight’s prayer builds on the present of knowledge discovered within the first scripture and which was on the heart of my homily.


Remember the fact that within the Hebrew scriptures (the bigger portion of our bible) Knowledge is characterised within the female…




Dare I invite Knowledge
to my coronary heart, Lord?

Dare I not welcome her advances? 

Do I not need her, deeply so,  

in my ideas, in my phrases, in all I do? 


She comes at no small
value, Lord,

calling me to
kiss goodbye

my a lot inflated ego,

my adolescent folly,

and my
cussed, egocentric delight…


A demanding
buddy is she

who asks for all I’ve 

however in return provides again way more

than I had ever hoped to have…


And a jealous lover
Knowledge is,

no different claims upon my coronary heart abiding:

she seduces me with reality

alongside a easy path to peace…


She shimmers and he or she shines

within the shadows of my thoughts

with a mesmerizing

undimmed by my confusion…


She trains my eyes to
search what’s true,

what’s good, what’s simply, what’s pure, 

what’s worthy of my love, my will,

my ideas, my phrases and all I do…


Dare I invite Knowledge to my coronary heart, Lord,

settle in my soul,

dwell deeply in my ideas

and take maintain my coronary heart’s wishes? 


Dare I not welcome her advances

and thus probability a
wasted, silly life,

spent in useless pursuit

of passing, empty pleasure?


No, relatively,

I select Girl Knowledge! 


Ship her to my arms

to resume me from the within out,

to control all issues properly inside my soul,

to abide with me, despite all my silly

and maintain me within the grace and peace she brings…


Within the stillness of
my prayer, Lord,

ship Knowledge to my soul,

to take me as her personal,

to make my coronary heart her dwelling…


Defend me, Lord, whereas I am awake

hold vigil whereas I sleep,

that awake, I would hold watch with you

and sleep properly in your peace…






Might you cling to knowledge for she is going to defend you

and if you happen to cherish her, she is going to hold you protected.

Take heed my kids and take heed to my phrases

and all of your years shall be wealthy and crammed with pleasure.

For I’ve taught you in methods of knowledge 

and paths of honesty.

Greater than all else, set a guard upon your coronary heart

since there’s discovered the wellspring of your soul!

Upon your journey let knowledge grace you

with steadfast imaginative and prescient.

So might you treasure the issues I’ve to say.

These phrases of reality shall lead you all to life.

Pray for notion, maintain quick to knowledge,

don’t forget her.
