Morning prayers 20th August 2020 2020年8月20日早祈禱。


For morning Light

I humbly thank you

And offer my praise to you

Open my heart and my mind 

And give me your presence

In my life today

Prayer for Gods help

 

Loving God

Come into my confused and troubled life

And send your Spirit

To work in me 

To realign me

So that I may know 

You in my life

Your joy, your peace, your Shalom

 

The Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Acts 27

 

The next day we landed at Sidon; and Julius, in kindness to Paul, allowed him to go to his friends so they might provide for his needs. From there we put out to sea again and passed to the lee of Cyprus because the winds were against us. When we had sailed across the open sea off the coast of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we landed at Myra in Lycia. There the centurion found an Alexandrian ship sailing for Italy and put us on board.We made slow headway for many days and had difficulty arriving off Cnidus. When the wind did not allow us to hold our course, we sailed to the lee of Crete, opposite Salmone. We moved along the coast with difficulty and came to a place called Fair Havens, near the town of Lasea.

 

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including the students and the exam chaos, desperate people crossing the sea in dinghies, continuing deaths from Covid 19, the ongoing unrest in Belarus, 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. 

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

讀法27

 

3第二日,降落西頓朱利叶斯,仁慈嘅保羅,允許嘅朋友,所以佢哋可能會滿足嘅需要。 4,再次出海,並傳遞畀塞浦路斯嘅李,因為風對我不利。 5当我航行西里西亞同潘菲利海岸外開闊嘅海面上時,降落莱西拉。 6喺嗰,老人發現了一艘駛向意大利嘅亞歷山大船,畀我登上船。 當風唔允許我堅持我嘅路線,航行到克里特嘅李,對面蒙。 8監困難沿着海岸移動,來到了拉西鎮附近嘅一個叫黑文嘅地方。

 

嘅祈禱。
