Evening Prayers July 26th 2020


 

Spirit of God

You are the breath of creation

The wind of change

Speak through our thoughts and dreams tonight 

 

Song “We labour unto glory”

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 21

 

27 When the seven days were nearly over, some Jews from the province of Asia saw Paul at the temple. They stirred up the whole crowd and seized him, 28 shouting, “Fellow Israelites, help us! This is the man who teaches everyone everywhere against our people and our law and this place. And besides, he has brought Greeks into the temple and defiled this holy place.” 29 (They had previously seen Trophimus the Ephesianin the city with Paul and assumed that Paul had brought him into the temple.)

 

 

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.
