NIGHT PRAYER: Monday 5/10

I guess restless is a good way to put it, Lord:
I'm feeling restless...

Unsettled, uneasy and maybe a little anxious
- but restless probably says it best...

Restless in my thoughts and feelings,
restless in my heart and soul,
restless in my own skin,
restless in my prayer...

As this day ends, Lord, I come to ask you
for peace of mind and heart,
for serenity, for tranquility,
for a calming of my soul,
for a stillness in my prayer
where I might find you there, waiting for me,
waiting to settle and to steady me,
to be my refuge and my haven...

Be peace in my unsettled soul,
be the calm that puts my mind at ease,
be the hush that stills my racing thoughts,
be the resting place of my restless heart tonight, Lord,
be the resting place of my restless heart tonight...

Protect me, Lord, as I lie awake
and watch over me when I fall asleep
that awake, I might keep peaceful watch with you
and asleep, rest safely in your peace...


Lord, You Have Come by Cesáreo Gabaráin


Lord, you have come to the seashore,
neither searching for the rich nor the wise,
desiring only that I should follow.

O, Lord, with your eyes set upon me,
gently smiling, you have spoken my name;
all I longed for I have found by the water,
at your side, I will seek other shores.

Lord, see my goods, my possessions;
in my boat you find no power, no wealth.
Will you accept, then, my nets and labour?

Lord, take my hands and direct them.
Help me spend myself in seeking the lost,
returning love for the love you gave me.

Lord, as I drift on the waters,
be the resting place of my restless heart,
my life’s companion, my friend and refuge.
