Evening Prayers May 18th 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 “There is a hope”

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

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

Reading Acts 7v51-53
51 “You stiff-necked people! Your hearts and ears are still uncircumcised. You are just like your ancestors: You always resist the Holy Spirit! 52 Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him— 53 you who have received the law that was given through angels but have not obeyed it.”

Intercessions 

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 “Always Good”

Closing Responses

On our heads and our houses
The blessing of God
In our thoughts and our dreams
The Peace of God
In our rest and our waking
The Love of God
This night and every night.
Amen
