Evening Prayers May 24th 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 “I’m leaning on you”


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 9v1-4
“Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

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 “We are waiting”

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
