For morning Light

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

 

16 “I told them that it is not the Roman custom to hand over anyone before they have faced their accusers and have had an opportunity to defend themselves against the charges.17 When they came here with me, I did not delay the case, but convened the court the next day and ordered the man to be brought in. 18 When his accusers got up to speak, they did not charge him with any of the crimes I had expected. 19 Instead, they had some points of dispute with him about their own religion and about a dead man named Jesus who Paul claimed was alive. 20 I was at a loss how to investigate such matters; so I asked if he would be willing to go to Jerusalem and stand trial there on these charges. 21 But when Paul made his appeal to be held over for the Emperor’s decision, I ordered him held until I could send him to Caesar.”

22 Then Agrippa said to Festus, “I would like to hear this man myself.”

He replied, “Tomorrow you will hear him.”

 

Our Prayers

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

 

16“我告訴他們,在任何人面對指控者並有機會為自己辯護之前,移交任何人不是羅馬的習俗。17當他們和我一起來時,我沒有拖延訴訟,但第二天召集法院,命令該男子被帶入法庭。18當他的控告者發言時,他們沒有指控他犯有我所預期的任何犯罪。 19相反,他們與保羅就自己的宗教信仰和保羅稱活著的死者耶穌有一些爭議。20我不知如何調這些事情;所以我問他是否願意去耶路撒冷接受這些指控。 21但是當保羅提出上訴以保留皇帝的決定時,我下令將他關押,直到我可以把他送到凱撒為止。

22亞基帕對費斯都我想親自聽到這個人。

他回答明天您將聽到他的聲音。

 

我們的祈禱

我們為令人擔憂的人和局勢祈禱,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以上者的保護,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

這是上帝創造的日子

沒有花我任何錢的
