Evening Prayers May 12th 2020

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  “On eagles wings”

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

We call on the power of God
To meet us in our helplessness
God in our thinking
God in our speaking

Reading Acts 5v27-32

27 When they had brought them, they stood them [m]before the Council. The high priest questioned them, 28 saying, “We gave you strict orders not to continue teaching in this name, and [n]yet, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” 29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men. 30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, [o]whom you had put to death by hanging Him on a [p]cross. 31 He is the one whom God exalted [q]to His right hand as a [r]Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. 32 And we are witnesses [s]of these things; and so isthe Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”


Prayer 

We pray tonight for all those we know who need our help and prayers ….and the many others we carry in our hearts tonight. 

Spirit of the Living God present with us now enter their bodies, minds and spirits and heal them of all that harms them. Let your angels be beside them at this time. In Jesus Name we pray.  


Song “You are mine”

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.
