Evening Prayers August 24th 2020 晚上祈禱2020年8月24日

 

Spirit of God

You are the breath of creation

The wind of change

Speak through our thoughts and dreams tonight 

 

Song “Im leaning on you”

Forgive me my closed mind

And break down the barricades of my heart

So I can embrace new ways of being

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 28

 

Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta. The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold. Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, “This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, the goddess Justice has not allowed him to live.” But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead; but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god.

 

Prayer 

 

We pray tonight for those in lockdown, for those who work in schools, for the people of Belarus and 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.

原諒我閉著心

打破我心的障礙

所以我可以擁抱新的生活方式

 

我們用自己的語言主禱文

 

讀法案28

 

一旦安全上岸,我們發現該島被稱為馬耳他。 2島民向我們展示了不同尋常的友善。他們著火了,因為天下著大雨和寒冷,所以歡迎我們所有人。 3保羅收拾了一堆草叢,放到火上,被高溫驅趕的毒蛇緊緊地握在手上。 4當島民看見蛇從他的手上垂下來時,他們互相這個人一定是殺人犯。因為儘管他從海裡逃了,但女神正義並沒有允許他生活。 5保羅卻將蛇甩入火中,沒有受到任何傷害。 6人們期望他腫脹或突然死亡。但是等了很久,發現他沒有任何異常之後,他們改變了主意,他是神。

 

禱告

 

今晚,我們為處於禁閉狀態的人們,在學校工作的人們,白俄羅斯人民以及我們認識的所有需要​​我們幫助的人祈禱,並為我們今晚發自心的祈禱。

 

與我們同在的永生上帝的靈現在進入他們的身體,思想和精神,並醫治他們所有傷害他們的東西。此時,讓您的天使在他們旁邊並保護他們。我們奉耶穌的名祈禱。

 

結束回應

 

在寂靜的深處

無需

我們只是被要求聽

為了聖靈的運動

在混亂中

聽到你的聲音。

 

 阿們
