NIGHT PRAYER: Friday 11/6


(Full Disclosure!  I wrote today's Night Prayer around mid-afternoon,
its theme based on the presumption that the election would have been
called by the time I posted the prayer: wrong!  So, at the last minute,
I'm posting a Night Prayer from over six months ago, a prayer I think
can serve us well tonight.)  
Tonight, Lord, 

I come to prayer with very few words,
not too much to say...

Tonight, Lord,
I trust you already know 
all my heart holds:
    my cares and concerns, 
    my sorrows and joys,
    my blessings and needs...

Tonight, Lord,
I trust you hear the whole of my prayer
without my speaking even a word...

Tonight, Lord,
I trust that in the silence
    my heart speaks to yours,
    your heart hears mine
and we are one in prayer...

Tonight, Lord,
I'll just sit with you in prayer
- and perhaps I'll fall asleep
in the silence that we share...

Protect me, Lord, while I'm awake 
and watch over me as I sleep
that awake I may keep watch with you
and asleep, rest in your peace...


You might share your wordless time with the Lord while listening to this simple, beautiful music.  This recording is about a half hour long: use just what you need - or fall asleep with it!
