Evening Prayers June 11th 2020

We lift you up Oh Lord
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”

Steadfast love
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.’[e]

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”


Closing Responses


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

This night

And every night
