Our Shepherd and Defender
Who leads us through the deepest valley.
In our need your power is displayed.
All our hope is in you Jesus.
Song “Yet not I”
Spirit of deep and boundless peace
Our chains are released, we can sing "I am free"
Yet not I but through Christ in me.
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Acts 13v39-43
39 Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses. 40 Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you:
41 “‘Look, you scoffers,
wonder and perish,
for I am going to do something in your days
that you would never believe,
even if someone told you.’”
42 As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue, the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath. 43 When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.
We pray tonight for all those we know who need our help and prayers who 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 “Speak O Lord”
Bless to us
The moon that is above us
The earth that is beneath us
Your image within us
The rest that is before us
And every night
