Vigils

"Oh come, bless The Lord, all you who serve The Lord
Who stand in the house of The Lord,
in the courts of the house of our God.
-
Oh Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise."
 
My favorite time if day, Vigils, spending time in silence
and chanting the Psalms in the middle of the night.
There is such a closeness to God at this time.
The cares of the day haven't had a chance to
work their craft on us. The words of scripture can
sink deep into the heart and become part of us.
 
This is the purpose of prayer, to bring us into union with God.
