Evening Prayer 4th May 2020

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

Song “You are my hiding place”


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 4v13-17

13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. 14 But since they could see the man who had been healed standing there with them, there was nothing they could say. 15 So they ordered them to withdraw from the Sanhedrin and then conferred together.16 “What are we going to do with these men?” they asked. “Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have performed a notable sign, and we cannot deny it.17 But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them to speak no longer to anyone in this name.”


Intercessions

We pray for anyone 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. 

Song “Abide with me”



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
