Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Preserve my life, for I am devoted to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all day long. Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on you. Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my cry of supplication. In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me.– Psalms 86:1-7
Blinding light assaults the darkness;
Children wait for guns to cease.
In the midst of warÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s confusion,
Make us instruments of peace.
Hungry for your visitation,
We are waiting Ã¢â‚¬â€œ
can save us.
Heal the wounds that we have made.
– Jean McMullan
