Holy breath of God
Find us in this place
Fall, sweet mercy on us
Healing by your grace
Song “Gods comfort in the valleys”
Tender hand of God
Hold us in your care
All our fears and broken hearts
Every burden bare
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Acts 8v34-40
34 The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” 35 Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.
36 As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?”  [c] 38 And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. 39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. 40 Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.
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 “Centre my life”
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.
