Evening Prayers May 14th 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  “He will hold me fast”


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 6v

Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, performed great wonders and signs among the people. Opposition arose, however, from members of the Synagogue of the Freedmen (as it was called)—Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria as well as the provinces of Cilicia and Asia—who began to argue with Stephen. 10 But they could not stand up against the wisdom the Spirit gave him as he spoke.

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 “There is nothing to fear”


Closing Responses

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.
