NIGHT PRAYER: Saturday 10/7

 The countdowns are counting down, Lord!
       24  days 'til Halloween
       47 days 'til Thanksgiving
       79 days 'til Christmas
       85 days 'til 2024!
And then there are countdowns to dates unknown:
        How many days 'til I change my ways?
        How many days 'til I do the right thing?
        How many days 'til I forgive those who hurt me?
        How many days 'til my family is mended?
        How many days 'til the violence ends?
        How many days 'til truth is the norm?
        How many days 'til all live as one?
        How many days 'til the hungry are fed?
        How many days 'til the homeless are sheltered?
        How many days 'til  victims find  justice?
        How many days 'til all Christians unite? 
        How many days 'til the world's at peace?
Only you know the day and the hour, Lord,
        when the sick will be healed, 
            all in your time...
        the broken mended, 
             all in your time...
        the lost found, 
            all in your time...
        my will one with yours, 
            all in your time...
        justice done, 
            all in your time...
        peace made, 
            all in your time...
        and all, at last, made one in you
            in your time, Lord, 
                all in your time...
So, while I wait
    and count the days 
        and number the nights,
    praying and working 
        for what can be:
    give me the grace, the strength and the courage,
        the conviction, grit and conviction,
    to do what is just and love what is good
        and to walk always humbly, right by your side,
    all in your time, Lord, 
        always and only, all in your time...
Protect me, Lord, 'til tomorrow comes
    and watch over me while I sleep
that awake, I might keep watch with you
    and asleep, rest in your peace...
