Evening Prayers June 5th 2020

God is love, let heaven adore him

God is love, let earth rejoice

Let Creation sing before him

And exalt him with one voice

Song “You Still Do”

Same Power

Now and Forever

God of the Old

God of the New

You Still Do

We bow before your throne

We say the Lords Prayer in our own language

Reading Acts 12v5-10

So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.
The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance.Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. “Quick, get up!” he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists.
Then the angel said to him, “Put on your clothes and sandals.” And Peter did so. “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me,” the angel told him. Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision. 10 They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one street, suddenly the angel left him.

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.

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.
