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 “Daughters of Zion”

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

 

33 The commander came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains. Then he asked who he was and what he had done. 34 Some in the crowd shouted one thing and some another, and since the commander could not get at the truth because of the uproar, he ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks. 35 When Paul reached the steps, the violence of the mob was so great he had to be carried by the soldiers. 36 The crowd that followed kept shouting, “Get rid of him!”

 

 

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.
