Evening Prayers August 14th 2020 晚上祈禱2020年8月14日


 

Spirit of God

You are the breath of creation

The wind of change

Speak through our thoughts and dreams tonight 

 

Song ”It is well with my soul”

https://youtu.be/zY5o9mP22V0

 

Forgive me my closed mind

And break down the barricades of my heart

So I can embrace new ways of being

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 26

 

“The Jewish people all know the way I have lived ever since I was a child, from the beginning of my life in my own country, and also in Jerusalem. They have known me for a long timeand can testify, if they are willing, that I conformed to the strictest sect of our religion, living as a Pharisee. And now it is because of my hope in what God has promised our ancestors that I am on trial today. This is the promise our twelve tribes are hoping to see fulfilled as they earnestly serve God day and night. King Agrippa, it is because of this hope that these Jews are accusing me. Why should any of you consider it incredible that God raises the dead?

 

 

Prayer 

 

We pray tonight for Belarus and all those we know who need our help and prayers who we carry in our hearts tonight. 

 

Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter their bodies, minds and spirits and heal them of all that harms them. Let your angels be beside them at this time and protect them. In Jesus Name we pray.  

 

Closing Responses

 

In the depth of silence

No words are needed

We are just called to listen

To the movement of the Spirit

And in the midst of confusion

To hear your voice. 

 

 Amen.

晚上祈禱2020814

 

神的靈

你是創造的氣息

變革之風

今晚通過我們的思想和夢想

 

歌曲我的靈魂很好

https://youtu.be/zY5o9mP22V0

 

原諒我閉著心

打破我心的障礙

所以我可以擁抱新的生活方式

 

我們用自己的語言主禱文

 

讀使徒行傳26

 

4“猶太人從我小時候起就在我自己的祖國和耶路撒冷生活,他們都知道我的生活方式。 5他們認識我很久了,如果願意的話,可以證明我符合我們宗教中最嚴格的派別,即法利賽人。 6現在,由於我對上帝應許我們祖先的希望,我今天受到審判。 7這是我們的十二個部落日以繼夜真誠地為上帝服務時所希望實現的應許。阿格里帕國王(Agrippa),正是由於這種希望,這些猶太人在指責我。 8你們為什麼有人認為上帝復活死人是不可思議的?

 

 

禱告

 

今晚我們為白俄羅斯以及我們認識的所有需要​​我們幫助的人祈禱,並今晚在我們心中進行的祈禱。

 

與我們同在的永生上帝的靈現在進入他們的身體,思想和精神,並醫治所有傷害他們的事物。此時,讓您的天使在他們旁邊並保護他們。我們奉耶穌的名祈禱。

 

結束回應

 

在寂靜的深處

無需

我們只是被要求聽

為了聖靈的運動

在混亂中

聽到你的聲音。

 

 阿們

Morning prayers 14th August 2020 English 晨禱2020年8月14日英語

 

For morning Light

I humbly thank you

And offer my praise to you

Open my heart and my mind

 

And give me your presence


In my life today

 

Song “From the breaking of the dawn”

Prayer for Gods help

 

Loving God

Come into my confused and troubled life

And send your Spirit

To work in me 

To realign me

So that I may know 

You in my life

Your joy, your peace, your Shalom

 

The Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 26

 

Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You have permission to speak for yourself.” So Paul motioned with his hand and began his defense:“King Agrippa, I consider myself fortunate to stand before you today as I make my defense against all the accusations of the Jews, and especially so because you are well acquainted with all the Jewish customs and controversies. Therefore, I beg you to listen to me patiently.

 

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the desperate people crossing the sea in dinghies, continuing deaths from Covid 19, the ongoing unrest in Belarus, Hong Kong and Syria, the rise of fascism, the government, the Rohinga Muslims, Muslims being persecuted in China, protection for key workers and adequate PPE, protection for Black and Asian people, for people on low or no incomes, for those with underlying health conditions and those over 60, care for those who are alone and those suffering with depression, protection for asylum seekers and refugees and ensuring that food is reaching the vulnerable and global warming. 

Ending with…May we not fail you. Amen

 

Closing Responses

 

This is the day that God has made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

I will not offer to God

Offerings that cost me nothing

I will go in Peace

To love and serve the Lord

Amen

我們母語的主禱文

 

讀使徒行傳26

 

阿格里帕對保羅你有權為自己話。因此,保羅舉起了手,開始了自己的辯護:2“阿格里帕國王,我今天很榮幸站在你面前,因為我對猶太人的所有指責進行了辯護,尤其是3,因為你對所有這些都非常了解猶太習俗和爭議。因此,請您耐心地聽我的話。

 

我們的祈禱

我們為關心的人和局勢祈禱,其中包括望的人在小艇中過海,Covid 19連續死亡,白俄羅斯,香港和敘利亞的持續動亂,法西斯主義崛起,政府,羅欣加穆斯林,穆斯林在中國遭受迫害,保護關鍵工人和適當的個人防護裝備,保護黑人和亞裔,收入低或沒有收入的人,具有基本健康狀況的人和60以上的人,照顧孤獨者和抑鬱症的人,為尋求庇護者和難民提供保護,並確保糧食到達脆弱和全球變暖的境地。
