Weekday Evening Prayer 28th March 2020

In quietness and in darkness
In peace and in confusion
Jesus Christ wants to make his home with us
And meet his friends
He is the Light of Life
He is the hope for the world

Song “Blessed Assurance” 


Affirmation

Tell everyone who is anxious
Be strong and don’t be afraid
Jesus is the source of Life
He brings light to the world
The light shines in darkness
And the darkness can never put it out.

The Lords Prayer in our own language

Reading Isaiah 43v1 

But now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!


Intercessions

We pray tonight for Doreen, for Julie and the home care workers on the front line, for Laura, Danielle, Louis, Jenny’s aunts and cousins in New York, Enid and all our families in other countries, for the asylum seekers at Welcome and Baobab who cannot access our drop in centres, the Lunch Club and Tuesday Club, for Angela’s neighbour. We pray there will be someone they can turn to at this time to help them. We pray for all who are anxious. Give them your peace and calm in their hearts. Have your hand upon us, our homes and our loved ones. Be with us all we pray this night and every night. In Jesus Name Amen. 

Song “Give thanks”

Blessing

The cross we shall take it
The joy we shall share it
The gospel we shall live it
The love we shall give it
The light we shall cherish it
The darkness God shall perish it. Amen
