Evening Prayers June 21st 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 “Lord from sorrows deep”

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 14v21-28

 

21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconiumand Antioch, 22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said. 23 Paul and Barnabas appointed elders[a] for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust. 24 After going through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia, 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia. 26 From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been committed to the grace of God for the work they had now completed. 27 On arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they stayed there a long time with the disciples.

Prayer 

 

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 and protect them. In Jesus Name we pray.

Closing Responses 

 

The cross we shall take it

The bread we shall share it

The gospel we shall live it

The love we shall give it

The light we shall cherish it 

The darkness God shall perish it. 

Amen.
