A Special Prayer for the Crisis in Ukraine
My Own Heart…
Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)
MY own heart let me have more pity on; let Me live to my sad self hereafter kind, Charitable; not live this tormented mind With this tormented mind tormenting yet. I cast for comfort I can no more get By groping round my comfortless, than blind Eyes in their dark can day or thirst can find Thirst ’s all-in-all in all a world of wet. Soul, self; come, poor Jackself, I do advise You, jaded, let be; call off thoughts awhile Elsewhere; leave comfort root-room; let joy size At God knows when to God knows what; whose smile ’s not wrung, see you; unforeseen times rather — as skies Betweenpie mountains — lights a lovely mile.
To Pray for
Peace among all nations - and an end to the ongoing war between the Ukraine and Russia which continues
Comfort and hope
An end to gang related attacks
