A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Tuesday 5/31

What a wonderful day, Lord:

    vibrant solar in a transparent sky,

    delicate breezes, recent spring air!


Simply the best way I would love issues to be

all the entire 12 months ‘spherical 

– however I do know that elsewhere, 

the climate’s not as sort

and in different hearts, even some shut by, 

proper beneath my sunny skies

    clouds of grief solid shadows over pleasure,

    waves of anger crash on tender souls,

    driving winds batter frightened minds,

    and frost chills what heat’s left

        in reminiscence’s fading embers…


And so, my night prayer, Lord…

I am grateful for this wondrous day

as I pray for my struggling brothers and sisters

in Uvalde, Buffalo, Ukraine, Haiti, Yemen, the Sahel, Nigeria, 

Afghanistan, Lebanon, Sudan, Colombia and Myanmar…

I reward you for right now’s clear skies as I pray

    for the homeless residing in shelters or on the road,

    for the hungry ravenous for meals and thirsting for clear water,

    for the poor and unemployed struggling to outlive one other day,

    for the chronically and terminally unwell whose ache by no means ends,

    and for these haunted by concern, anxiousness and despair

        and for whom the climate by no means appears to clear…

I am grateful for today, Lord, 

    however maintain me aware, all the time,

        of these whose “climate” holds them captive;

strengthen and encourage me,

    within the sunshine and the heat,

to reply, attain out and, as I am in a position, to alleviate 

    these ready for the skies to lastly clear

        and a day of therapeutic peace to daybreak…

Shield us, Lord whereas we’re awake

and watch over us whereas we sleep

that awake, we would maintain watch with you

and asleep, relaxation in your peace…



I could not discover a “climate hymn” to pair with tonight’s prayer

however The Summons appears to serve nicely – rain or shine…
