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 28

 

23 They arranged to meet Paul on a certain day, and came in even larger numbers to the place where he was staying. He witnessed to them from morning till evening, explaining about the kingdom of God, and from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets he tried to persuade them about Jesus. 24 Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe.25 They disagreed among themselves and began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: “The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your ancestors when he said through Isaiah the prophet:

 

26 “‘Go to this people and say,
“You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
    you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.”
27 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
    they hardly hear with their ears,
    and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.’[a]

 

Our Prayers

We pray for people and situations we are concerned about including people making decisions about schools, the shooting of black people in the US, the chaotic weather, people in lockdown, desperate people crossing the sea in dinghies, continuing deaths from Covid 19, the ongoing unrest in Minnesota, Belarus, arrests in Hong Kong and Syria, Russian democracy, 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

我們母語的主禱文

 

讀法案28

 

23他們安排在某一天與保羅見面,並以更多的人數來到他所住的地方。他從早到晚都向他們作見證,向他們解釋了上帝的國度,並從摩西的律法和先知那裡向他們作了服。 24有些人相信他的話,但另一些人則不相信。25他們彼此不同意,在保羅發表最後聲明後就離開了。

 

26“‘去找這個人

您將永遠聽見,但永遠不會理解;

    您將看到但從未察覺。

27因為這人民的心已冷酷無情。

    他們幾乎聽不到耳的聲音,

    他們閉上了眼睛。

否則他們可能會用眼睛看到

    聽到他們的耳

    用心去理解

然後轉身,我會治愈他們的。[a]
