Evening Prayers July 6th 2020



We are called to be the church

To celebrate God's presence

To love and serve others

To seek justice and resist the destructive

To live the life of Christ

By the presence of God's Spirit within us.

If you were disinterested

We would not come to you in prayer

But you have time to listen

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 17v26-31

 

26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’[b] As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’

29 “Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone—an image made by human design and skill. 30 In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. 31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”

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.
