Evening Prayers June 2nd 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 “Psalm 139”

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

We call on the power of God
To meet us in our helplessness
God in our thinking
God in our speaking

Reading Acts 11v1-3

The apostles and the believers throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of God. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him and said, “You went into the house of uncircumcised men and ate with them.”


Prayer 

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 “Abide with me”

Closing Responses

Night is falling
Gracious Spirit 
Guard our sleeping
Darkness soon will come 
Gracious Spirit 
Guard our sleeping
Now we go to rest
Gracious Spirit 
Guard our sleeping.
