Evening Prayers July 31st 2020


 

Spirit of God

You are the breath of creation

The wind of change

Speak through our thoughts and dreams tonight 

 

Song “In the fields of the Lord”

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 23

 

Paul looked straight at the Sanhedrin and said, “My brothers, I have fulfilled my duty to God in all good conscience to this day.” At this the high priest Ananias ordered those standing near Paul to strike him on the mouth. Then Paul said to him, “God will strike you, you whitewashed wall! You sit there to judge me according to the law, yet you yourself violate the law by commanding that I be struck!”

 

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.
