NIGHT PRAYER: Thursday 4/30

Tonight's prayer is taken from He Karakia Mihinare oAotearoa*

It is night.

The night is for stillness.
     Let us be still in the presence of God...

It is night after a long day.
     What has been done has been done;
     what has not been done has not been done:
     let it be...

The night is dark.
     Let our fears of the darkness,
     of the world
     and of our own lives
     rest in you...

The night is quiet.
     Let the quietness of your peace enfold us,
     all dear to us,
     and all who have no peace...

The night heralds the dawn.
     Let us look expectantly to a new day,
     new joys,
     new possibilities...

In your name, O God, we pray...


A Suggestion...
Pray the text above, three or four times, slowly, 
with Ravel's peace-filled Pavane 
as the musical ambience for your prayer...

Lyon National Orchestra: Pavane by Maurice Ravel

* From A New Zealand Prayer Book (He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa)
