Dear Friend,

Having come through Lent, Holy Week, and Easter

we might want to let our hair down

put our feet up

take a Holy Nap.

All well. Your Parent rested after creation.


But when we awake,

let us remember that Easter is always, is now

is right this minute

and our sick, sad old world needs Your news

just as desperately today as ever.

We are praying, we are praying for all these

Pray-For-__ Gif(gif from

We pray from emails, Facebook posts, along with those we know and love, or do not know, or hear of.

and by the time the gif is coded and published

we are praying for others

hijacked planes, shooters at the US capitol,

refugees, today and always

Friend, hear our prayers.

Let our cries come to you. For

You only are immortal, the creator and maker of mankind;
and we are mortal, formed of the earth, and to earth shall we
return. For so did you ordain when you created me, saying,
“You are dust, and to dust you shall return.” All of us go down
to the dust; yet even at the grave we make our song: Alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia.

(BCP p. 499)

Amen. May it be so. Amen.
