Evening Prayers June 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 “The Lords my shepherd”

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 16v1-5

 

Paul came also to Derbe and to Lystra. And a disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a Jewish woman who was a believer, but his father was a Greek, and he was well spoken of by the brethren who were in Lystra and Iconium. Paul wanted this man to [a]go with him; and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those parts, for they all knew that his father was a Greek. Now while they were passing through the cities, they were delivering the decrees which had been decided upon by the apostles and elders who were in Jerusalem, for them to observe. So the churches were being strengthened [b]in the faith, and were increasing in number daily.

 

 

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.
