Evening Prayer 2nd 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 “Immortal, invisible, God only wise”

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 4

Answer me when I call to you,
    my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
    have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
How long will you people turn my glory into shame?
    How long will you love delusions and seek false gods[b]?[c]
Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself;
    the Lord hears when I call to him.
Tremble and[d] do not sin;
    when you are on your beds,
    search your hearts and be silent.
Offer the sacrifices of the righteous
    and trust in the Lord.
Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”
    Let the light of your face shine on us.
Fill my heart with joy
    when their grain and new wine abound.
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
    for you alone, Lord,
    make me dwell in safety.
  
Intercessions

We pray tonight for Lorna, Nickys mum, Tony Liz’s nephew and Jackys friends mum and anyone else we know who is ill or needing our prayers…..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.

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
