A Prayer to be used at Compline on the Evening of the 23rd of November 2013

Dear God,
thank you.

P.S. Lord, anytime you want to explain the Tom Baker bit, feel free…

    That seems a bit unspecific — I was always taught that we should be specific in our prayers …

    And I am puzzled by the fact that the Facebook link to this post has an ultrasound picture with it …

    Not so sure I’d say thank you for this. As you say, the Tom Baker bit was just plain confusing, as the 4th Doctor dies with brown curls, not short, white hair, but the whole thing came across as a huge slap on the back for the fact that it is still going after 50 years, rather than celebrating it with a great story.
    I am still left very disappointed for the fact that so much was promised and yet so little delivered. I can only hope that they fix this with the Christmas special…

Christ the King
Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
