For morning Light

I humbly thank you

And offer my praise to you

Open my heart and my mind 

Give me your presence

In my life today

Prayer for Gods help

 

Loving God

Come into my confused and troubled life

Send your Spirit

To work in me 

Realign me

So that I may know 

You in our life

Your joy, your peace, your Shalom

 

The Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 25

 Then Paul made his defence: “I have done nothing wrong against the Jewish law or against the temple or against Caesar.”

Festus, wishing to do the Jews a favour, said to Paul, “Are you willing to go up to Jerusalem and stand trial before me there on these charges?”

10 Paul answered: “I am now standing before Caesar’s court, where I ought to be tried. I have not done any wrong to the Jews, as you yourself know very well. 11 If, however, I am guilty of doing anything deserving death, I do not refuse to die. But if the charges brought against me by these Jews are not true, no one has the right to hand me over to them. I appeal to Caesar!”

12 After Festus had conferred with his council, he declared: “You have appealed to Caesar. To Caesar you will go!”

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the desperate people crossing the sea in dinghies, continuing deaths from Covid 19, the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong and Syria, the rise of fascism, the government, the Rohinga Muslims, Muslims being persecuted in China, protection for key workers and adequate PPE, protection for Black and Asian people, for people on low or no incomes, for those with underlying health conditions and those over 60, care for those who are alone and those suffering with depression, protection for asylum seekers and refugees and ensuring that food is reaching the vulnerable and global warming. 

Ending with…May we not fail you. Amen

 

Closing Responses

 

This is the day that God has made

I will rejoice and be glad in it

I will not offer to God

Offerings that cost me nothing

I will go in Peace

To love and serve the Lord

Amen

我們母語的主禱文

 

讀使徒行傳25

 然後保羅辯護:我在違反猶太法律,聖殿或凱撒方面沒有做錯任何事情。

9費斯托斯希望幫猶太人一個忙,對保羅你願意去耶路撒冷受這些指控在我面前受審判嗎?

10保羅回答我現在站在凱撒法庭上,應該在那兒接受審判。我對猶太人沒有做錯任何事,因為您自己很清楚。 11但是,如果我有罪應做的事,我不會拒死。但是,如果這些猶太人對我提出的指控不成立,沒有人有權將我移交給他們。我呼籲凱撒!

12費斯托斯與他的理事會商議之後,他宣布:您已向凱撒提出上訴。去凱撒,你會去的!

我們的祈禱

我們為擔心的人和局勢祈禱,其中包括望的人在小艇中過海,Covid 19的持續死亡,香港和敘利亞的持續動盪,法西斯主義的崛起,政府,羅欣加穆斯林,受到迫害的穆斯林在中國,對關鍵工人和適當的個人防護裝備的保護,對黑人和亞洲人,低收入或無收入者的保護,對具有基本健康狀況的人和60以上的人的保護,對孤獨者和抑鬱症患者的照顧,保護尋求庇護者和難民,並確保糧食到達脆弱的全球變暖。

結束於……願我們不辜負您。阿門

 

結束回應

 

這是上帝創造的日子

我會為此而高興並感到高興

我不會獻給上帝

沒有花我任何錢的

我會和平的

愛與事奉主

阿門
