Evening Prayer 1st April 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 “There’s a quiet understanding”

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 Psalm 2

Why do the nations conspire[a]
    and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up

    and the rulers band together
    against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
    and throw off their shackles.”
The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
    the Lord scoffs at them.
He rebukes them in his anger
    and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
    on Zion, my holy mountain.”
I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:
He said to me, “You are my son;
    today I have become your father.Ask me,

    and I will make the nations your inheritance,    the ends of the earth your possession.
You will break them with a rod of iron[b];
    you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
    be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
    and celebrate his rule with trembling.12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
    and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
    Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
