Evening Prayers September 18th 2020, 晚上祈禱2020年9月18日



 

In a world of great wealth

Where many are hungry

Many persecuted

Guide us into the way of hope, justice and love

 

Song “Peacemaker”

Loving God, we are fragmented and conflicted, 

We speak of liberation and oppress

We speak of peace and are violent

Help us to love and not hate 

Even in these dark days. Amen

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language

 

Reading Romans 5v20 The Ten Commandments were given so that all could see the extent of their failure to obey God’s laws. But the more we see our sinfulness, the more we see God’s abounding grace forgiving us. 21 Before, sin ruled over all and brought them to death, but now God’s kindness rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Our Prayers

 

We pray tonight for those in lockdown, for kids and teaching staff, for doctors and health workers, for people who are isolated and exhausted, for the people of Belarus, Syria, Yemen and Hong Kong, for the unrest in the US and the chaos in the UK 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.

在一個充滿財富的世界

那裡很多人餓了

許多人受到迫害

引導我們走上希望,正義和愛的道路

愛上帝,我們支離破碎,相互矛盾,

我們談論解放與壓迫

我們談論和平,充滿暴力

幫助我們愛而不恨

即使在這些黑暗的日子裡。阿門

 

我們用自己的語言主禱文

 

讀羅馬書5v20給出十誡是為了使所有人都能看到他們未能遵守上帝律法的程度。但是,我們越了解罪惡,就越能看到上帝寬容我們的罪過。 21以前,罪惡統治著所有人,並把他們殺死。但是現在,上帝的仁慈統治了一切,使我們與上帝站在一起,並通過我們的主耶穌基督實現了永生。

 

我們的祈禱

 

今晚,我們為禁閉者,孩子和教學人員,醫生和衛生工作者,為孤立和精疲力竭的人們,白俄羅斯,敘利亞,也門和香港人民,為美國的動盪和混亂而祈禱。在英國,以及我們認識的所有今晚需要我們幫助和祈禱的人。

 

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,並治愈一切傷害他們的事物。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
