Evening Prayers July 7th 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.


Song “Come people of the risen King”

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 18v1-4

 

After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them, and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them. Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.

 

 

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.
