Make Haste To Love!

A prayer for all of us…

“O God, my God! The gloom of night hath shrouded every region, and all the earth is shut away behind thick clouds. The peoples of the world are sunk in the black depths of vain illusions, while their tyrants wallow in cruelty and hate. I see nothing but the glare of searing fires that blaze upward from the nethermost abyss, I hear nothing save the thunderous roar that belloweth out from thousands upon thousands of fiery weapons of assault while every land is crying aloud…

“O my Lord, the lamps of guidance have gone out. The flames of passion are mounting high, and malevolence is ever gaining on the world. Malice and hate have overspread the face of the whole earth, and I find no souls except Thine own oppressed small band who are raising up this cry:

“Make haste to love! Make haste to trust! Make haste to give! To guidance come!

“Come ye for harmony! To behold the Star of Day! Come here for kindliness, for ease! Come here for amity and peace!

“Come and cast down your weapons of wrath, till unity is won! Come and in the Lord’s true path each one help each one.

“O my Lord, wing them with victory that they may soar upward to salvation, strengthen their loins in service to Thy people, and their backs in servitude to Thy Threshold of Holiness.

“Verily Thou art the Generous, verily Thou art the Merciful! There is none other God save Thee, the Clement, the Ancient of Days!”

THANK YOU!

The SMART program consists of 18 regular volunteer readers in Sherman County who provide literacy support to K-3 readers, fostering a love of reading in these students.
