In peace and in confusion
Jesus Christ is the Light of Life
He is the hope for the world
Song “Adoremus Te O Christe”
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 5v1-6
Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. 2 With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.
3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? 4 Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.”
5 When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. 6 Then some young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.
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 “Come Holy Ghost”
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
