AS DUSK FELL...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

...25 Jun 1950...a flood of shadows moved south through the northern mountains in the Land of the Morning Calm...The sound of padding feet and clanking gear echoed and re-echoed off miles and miles of otherwise silent countryside...
...By midnight, a division of tanks stood poised and waiting at a border the entire world would soon know as the 38th Parallel.
...At dawn, the tanks grumbled awake and tractored forward, leading 7 infantry divisions out of the towering Taebaeks and into the peaceful foothills and valleys below.
......Thus began the Korean War...on Sunday, June 25th, 1950...
..........Millions of unsuspecting people were doomed to violent death--tens of thousands were Americans...But for them, and thousands of their young allies, South Korea would not be free today.

.......This is a brief reminder--The Forgotten War is not forgotten...and neither are those boys and young men who fought it...
......From the 1st Marine Division of that time and place--Semper Fi to you all...and peace...

Do not abandon me, Lord.
My God, do not go away from me!
Hurry to help me, Lord, my Savior.
(Ps 37)


God of compassion, we are in great need of your loving presence in our lives.
In this hour of darkness, hear our prayers as we cry out to you in our pain, confusion and fear.
We hunger for your wisdom to nourish us with strength and courage as we struggle to make sense out of the tragedies which have befallen us.
We thirst for the spring of life-giving waters, which purify and sanctify life as the pain and anguish are overwhelming.
In your Son's earthly life, he gave us the Beatitudes to guide us along our journey.
May we draw new life from the examples he gave of how to respond to life's situations and to focus our attention on the greater good of all.
May we become prayerful people full of hope, peace and love.
So the words, “A world at prayer is a world at peace”, will echo true in all your people.

Amen.

Let my prayer come before you, Lord: listen and answer me.
(Ps 87)


Lord our God, we trust in your loving presence in our lives.
As we live in an ever-changing world, our lives can be entangled in the chaos of moving too quickly.
We are in need of your mercy in those times when we find ourselves caught in the spiral of chaos and negativity.
We come before you with our prayers trusting in your response to our needs and desires.

Amen.

Prayer to Do God's Will

Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous;
Teach me to serve thee as thou deservest;
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not to seek reward,
Save that of knowing that I do thy will.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

Put Courage Into My Heart

Lord, put courage into my heart, and take away all that may hinder me serving you.
Free my tongue to proclaim your goodness, that all may understand me.
Give me friends to advise and help me, that by working together our efforts may bear abundant fruit.
And, above all, let me constantly remember that all my actions are in vain unless they are guided by your hand.

Amen.

Lord show us your mercy and love.
(Ps 85)


Lord Jesus, we are aware of your love and mercy.
Yet there are times when our interaction with others clouds our seeing your presence in our lives.
In these moments,
may we turn to you for encouragement so that we may always be aware of your loving mercy.

Amen.

Prayer for the Nation

With malice toward none; with charity for all;
with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right,
let us strive on to finish the work we are in;
to bind up the nation's wounds...
to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Abraham Lincoln

The Lord speaks of peace to his holy people,
to those who turn to him with all their heart.
(Ps 84)


Lord, you are King of Heaven and Earth.
Open our minds to hear your words, touch our lips to proclaim your words and open our hearts to feel your presence, so that we may be a faithful witness to your presence in our world.
We pray that your graces will bring all humankind together in this world and that we will all be worthy to share a place in your Kingdom forever.

Amen.

Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest, says the Lord.
(Mt 11)


Lord God, this day we find ourselves rejoicing with the men and women who have gone before us as witnesses to the faith.
Their witness to the faith gives us encouragement to walk our journey of faith in trust, humility and love.
Help us, Lord, to remain faithful to your teachings and your ways and never let us stray from your path.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Celebration of Freedom in America

Lord God Almighty, in whose Name the founders of this country won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn:
Grant we beseech thee, that we and all the people of this land may have grace to maintain our liberties in righteousness and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally.

Make me the kind of person you want me to be.

Amen.

The Lord is near to all who call upon him.
(Ps 145)


Lord Jesus, we strive to remain faithful to your words in our lives and to live in holiness, yet we sometimes fall short of this goal.
At times, we are fragile and weak, and are in need of your mercy in our lives.
In these moments when we have failed to remain faithful, we ask for your forgiveness and mercy.

Amen.

I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord;
no one comes to the Father except through me.
(Jn 14)


Lord Jesus, we believe that you are the way, the truth and the life.
Because of this belief, we bring before you our concerns, our worries,
our fears as we walk the path of life that will bring us closer to you and to your Father.
We are in need of your graces in our lives in order to grow deeper and stronger in our belief in you.

Amen.

Prayer for Times of Fear

Almighty God, the Refuge of all that are distressed, grant unto us that,
in all trouble of this our mortal life, we may flee to the knowledge of Thy lovingkindness and tender mercy;
that so, sheltering ourselves therein, the storms of life may pass over us,
and not shake the peace of God that is within us.
Whatsoever this life may bring us, grant that it may never take from us the full faith that Thou art our Father.

Amen.

Come, let us worship the Lord.
Let us bow down in the presence of our maker, for he is the Lord our God.
(Ps 94)


In faith and love we ask you, God our Father, to watch over your family.
In your mercy and loving kindness no thought of ours is left unguarded, no tear unheeded, no joy unnoticed.
Through the prayer of Jesus may the blessings promised to the poor in spirit lead us to the treasures of your heavenly kingdom.

Amen.

My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.

May the power of this love be in our hearts to bring your pardon and your kingdom to all we meet.

Amen.

Blessing Over Food

Lord most giving and resourceful,
I implore you:
Make it your will that these people enjoy
the goods and riches you naturally give,
that naturally issue from you,
that are pleasing and savory,
that delight and comfort,
though lasting but briefly,
passing away as if in a dream.

Amen

O Lord, you have given everything its place in the world,
and no one can make it otherwise.
For it is your creation, the heavens and the earth and the stars:
you are the Lord of all.
(Esther 13)


Almighty and eternal God, your love for us surpasses all our hopes and desires.
We are thankful for your presence in our lives and for the beauty of the creation that surrounds us, for you are the Lord of all.
Lead us to seek beyond our reach and give us the courage to stand before your truth.

Amen.
