NIGHT PRAYER: Thursday 12/3


Some folks are afraid of the dark, Lord
- and not just the children!
Others fear the night time's silence:
    lonely hours passed with memories
    of days gone by, loved ones lost
    and treasured souvenirs of joy...
Then there's the mystery
    of walking in shadows, feeling our way
    through places unseen and unknown,
    wandering, wondering 
    where our steps will bring us,
    praying for your hand to guide us...
Help us remember, Lord:
    there's comfort in the night time;
    there's nothing in the dark 
       save what was there in sunshine;
    that memories glow in shadows,
        more clearly than in daylight;
    that your gentle Spirit always leads
        at dawn, at noon, all night...
Each day when evening comes then,
    help us fall into your arms,
make your home within our hearts
    that we might find our home in yours...
Protect us, Lord, through dark of night,
keep vigil as we sleep
that awake, we might keep watch with you
and asleep, rest in your peace...

In the Arms of God by Tony Alonso

Come and rest in the arms of God,
Leave your worry and fear
Make your home in the heart of God,
God will dry every tear.
For the burden you carry will fade within God's care,
Come and rest in the arms of God.

Gentle is God's way and humble is God's heart.
God's love will light the way that leads to peace.
Surely you shall see God's goodness and God's grace:
Rest now in God's embrace. 


Do not be afraid; God heals the broken heart.
Through grief and disbelief God still remains.
God and God alone will be your soul's true rest:
Fall in the arms of God. 


 You are not alone, for God is always near.
Come, place your doubt and fear within God's care.
God will give you rest and soothe your weary soul:
Dwell in the heart of God.
