Evening Prayers April 4th 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. 

Song “It is well with my soul”

We say the Lords Prayer in our own language

Prayer 

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

A time of silence for our prayers

Reading Psalm 8

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
Through the praise of children and infants
    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
    to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?[c]
You have made them[d] a little lower than the angels[e]
    and crowned them[f] with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their[g] feet:
all flocks and herds,
    and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,
    all that swim the paths of the seas.
Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Song “Whole world in his hands” Tim Hughes

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.
