Night prayer in October


Image: Jhell2

Day is done, Lord...


Autumn's evening chill shivers,
turning leaves and me
to season's change...

The shiver shakes awake the fall within
and I seek pardon
for any early frost upon my heart...

For this day's noontime warmth,
October hues and simple joys
I give you praise...

Into your sacred heart and holy arms
I hand those who lean on me
and all who care for me...

Day is done, Lord...

May this night's moon
shine bright peace on all
'til the sun shall rise again...

- Concord Pastor

...beautiful...

I am going to pray with this-
and the image of God's arms holding me safe-
giving me strength-


thank you.
