Evening Prayer 30th April 2020




In peace and in confusion
Jesus Christ is the Light of Life
He is the hope for the world

Song “Bless the Lord my soul” 

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 Lords Prayer in our own language

Reading Acts 3v24-26

24 “Indeed, beginning with Samuel, all the prophets who have spoken have foretold these days. 25 And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’[b] 26 When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”

Intercessions

We pray for anyone we know who is ill or needing our prayers. 
We pray tonight especially for people living on their own not able to talk to other people. We pray for all of us as we experience emotions of depression, anger and powerlessness because of the lockdown. Be with us we pray. 

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 “Psalm 91”

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 evil God shall perish it. Amen
