A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Wednesday 11/30

The final day of November, Lord

    – then another month

    and 2022 is historical past…

It has been fairly a 12 months, Lord:

    not with out its blessings

    however laden, too, with burdens…


And the place I reside, November’s parting shot

comes with chilly rain and robust winds

stripping fall’s final leaves 

from the spindly branches 

simply outdoors my door…

So I’ll select tonight, Lord, 

the heat of your embrace

and the shelter of your coronary heart

because the refuge for my prayer…


No storm can shake my inmost calm

whereas to your aspect, I am clinging:

    you are the Lord of heaven and earth

    – how can I maintain from singing?


Defend me by means of the storm this evening,

maintain vigil whereas I sleep, Lord:

    awake I will maintain the watch with you

    and sleep protected in your peace…




How Can I Preserve From Singing  




My life flows on in limitless track above earth’s lamentation. 

I hear the true, although far-off hymn that hails a brand new creation. 


No storm can shake my inmost calm, whereas to that rock, I’m clinging 

Since love prevails in heaven and earth, 

How can I maintain from singing? 


Whereas although the tempest spherical me roars, I do know the reality, it liveth. 

And although the darkness spherical me shut, songs within the evening it giveth. 


I Carry my eyes. The cloud grows skinny; I see the blue above it. 

And day-to-day, this pathway smooths, since first I discovered to find it irresistible. 


How Can I Preserve from singing? 


Preserve Singing.


Creation Blessing
