Sunday Evening Prayers 29th March 2020

We call on the power of God
To meet us in our helplessness
God in our thinking
God in our speaking
We call on the clarity of God
To meet us in our confusion
We call on the mercy of God
To meet us in our brokenness
God in our meeting, God in our parting. 

Song “Abide with me”

We say the Lords Prayer in our own language

Prayer 

We pray tonight for all who need our help and prayers,
Bashas prayers
and the many others we carry in our hearts tonight. 

A time of silence for our prayers

Reading Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
    O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
    to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
    O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
    that you may be feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
    and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord
    more than watchmen for the morning,
    more than watchmen for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord!
    For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
    and with him is plentiful redemption.
And he will redeem Israel
    from all his iniquities.

Song “O Lord our God”

Closing Responses

Night has fallen
Gracious Spirit Guard our sleeping
Darkness now has come 
Gracious Spirit guard our sleeping
Now we go to rest
Gracious Spirit Guard our sleeping.
