Sunday Respite – O Lord Hear My Prayer


We are told in James 5:16 “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”

We pray for our great Republic.

My favorite Taize hymn: O Lord hear my prayer, music by the French composer of liturgical music, Jacques Berthier (1923 – 1994). Lyrics from Psalm 102. Sunsets from various locations, by Patricia Maloney Ottawa ON Canada. The final photos were taken in the evening during the Stations of the Cross at Saint Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

O Lord! Hear my prayer. When I call, answer me. Come and listen to me………………………………………………………………………………..


O God our Creator,
from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father,
a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome—for the sake of our children, our grandchildren,
and all who come after us—
this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord.


Wishing everyone a wonderful day with Peace.

    Dear Bunkerville

    Just beautiful, thank you. I know the heavenly Father appreciates this immensely, as does His Son, His beautiful Boy as He calls Him. He is behind you all the way, and His beautiful and strong angels are fighting hard and Truth and Love, Justice and Mercy will win.

    Whilst not directly pertinent to this post perhaps, I have written about Joe Biden on my site which I think others should know about – especially the circumstance surrounding his first wife Neila’s death.

    Thank you again.

    Kind regards
