Evening Prayers July 19th 2020


 

Spirit of God

You are the breath of creation

The wind of change

Speak through our dreams tonight 

 

Song “Lead kindly light”

Forgive us our closed minds

And break down the barricades of our hearts

So we can embrace new ways of being

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 20

 

22 “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem,not knowing what will happen to me there. 23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

 

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

 

In the depth of silence

No words are needed

We are just called to listen

To the movement of the Spirit

And in the midst of confusion

To hear your voice. 

 

 Amen.
