Tuesday prayer

When I am most sickened by the things that are done by the country that surrounds this place, I will take out the prophets and sing them in loud Latin across the hills and send their fiery words sailing south over the mountains to the place where they split atoms for bombs in Tennessee.
A Year With Thomas Merton, May 18

indicabo tibi o homo quid sit bonum et quid Dominus quaerat a te utique facere iudicium et diligere misericordiam et sollicitum ambulare cum Deo tuo
Micah 6:8 in Latin

I am weary today, after many nights of disrupted sleep. And I'm cranky, too. So prayers of enouragement would be appreciated. Also, prayers of help that I dont have to wake up at 4:30 every morning, anxious and twitchy.
