A Prayer of John Bruen


An amazing, beautiful death-bed prayer:

from God's Secretaries
Adam Nicolson

Come Lord Jesus, and kiss me with the kisses of thy mouth, and embrace me with the armes of thy love. Into thy hands do I commend my spirit; O come now, and take me to thine owne selfe; O come, lord Jesus, come quickly. O come, O come, O come.

A Prayer against Hurricanes

| | Comments (1)

With enormous thanks to Neil.

All quiet so far--tomorrow the fun begins. Pray the roof holds and ward off any flooding. This slow-moving storm is bad news for a great many. It's a mixed blessing--more time to prepare for those things that can be prepared for, but subject to those things one can do nothing whatsoever about.

O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude; you are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control. The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster. During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us. Amen.

Thanks to all of you praying. Keep it up. Prayer will yet prevail and keep a great many from harm.
