Evening Prayers 3rd April 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.

We say the Lords Prayer in our own language

Prayer 

We pray tonight for all who need our help and prayers, especially for Hazels husband Roger, Nyks mum Lorna, Dave Humphries family, Ruby and family, Candice and her family
and the many others we carry in our hearts tonight. 

A time of silence for our prayers

Reading Psalm 6

Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
    or discipline me in your wrath.
Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
    heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
My soul is in deep anguish.
    How long, Lord, how long?
Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
    save me because of your unfailing love.
Among the dead no one proclaims your name.
    Who praises you from the grave?
I am worn out from my groaning.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping
    and drench my couch with tears.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
    they fail because of all my foes.
Away from me, all you who do evil,
    for the Lord has heard my weeping.
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;
    the Lord accepts my prayer.
10 All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish;
    they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.

Song “Agnes Dei"

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.
