NIGHT PRAYER: Sunday 1/31

As January shivers into February,
open my eyes, Lord,
and open my mind and heart,
to your power in the weather,
your presence in the stillness,
your beauty all around me...

In this shortest month of the year, Lord,
help me find the peace you offer:
    when it's cold,
       wrap me in your mercy's warmth;
    in the snow,
       cover me with saving grace;
    in nature's dormant silence,
       help me find more time for prayer,
       time with you to grow in winter's quiet,
       in the mystery of your love for me...

As January morphs into February, Lord,
open all I am
to all you have to give 
and ready me for springtime
and the promise that it holds... 
Protect me, Lord, as I lie awake
and watch over me while I sleep
that awake, I might keep watch withyou
and asleep, rest in your peace...


Dark of Winter
