Evening Prayers May 29th 2020

Holy Spirit Breath of God
Breathe within our hearts tonight
Move among us as we pray
All our cares and burdens 
We cast on you

Song “My Redeemer lives” 

Almighty God we come before
Your throne to worship you
Our God who speaks
Our God who hears
Our God who sees
Our God who moves

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

Reading Acts 9v9-16
About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. 13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”
14 “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”
15 The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”
16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
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 “Forgiven”

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
