Evening Prayer

Holy Spirit, come like a mighty rushing wind and awaken us out of our complacency, our apathy, our indifference. Disturb us, for we are too content to let things go on as they are, and to let people go on not knowing you. Penetrate the closed gates of our hearts and make us live again. O Holy Spirit, create among us a mighty Christian Revolution and cast the fear of the unknown out of our lives.

From the Internet, unknown source.

Thinking tonight of friends in hospice, in the hospital, thinking of those facing surgery this week but especially thinking of those without gainful employment -- including the 30 to 40 thousand laid off today. God, pour your spirit upon those whom I have named -- and upon all those who are weary and heavy laden. Disturb us in our complacency.
