Evening Prayer - Friday June 19 2020

Confession


Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.
Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins
through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all
goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in
eternal life. Amen.


Opening Hymn: LEVAS2 (L176)    An Evening Prayer



1 If I have wounded any soul today,
If I have caused one foot to go astray,
If I have walked in my own willful way,
Dear Lord, forgive!
2 If I have uttered idle words or vain,
If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I offend some other through the strain,
Dear Lord, forgive!
3 If I have been perverse, or hard, or cold,
If I have longed for shelter in the fold,
When thou hast given me some fort to hold,
Dear Lord, forgive!
4 Forgive the sins I have confessed to thee;
Forgive the secret sins I do not see;
O guide me, love me, and my keeper be.
Dear Lord, Amen.

The Invitatory and Psalter

V: O God, make speed | to save | us.
R: O Lord, | make haste | to help | us.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



O Gracious Light Phos hilaron with words


O gracious light,
pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!
Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.




Psalm 91


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     




As for you, the one who lives in the shel-ter of the Most High,
and re-sides in the pro-tec-tive shad-ow of the Sov-ereign One
I say this a-bout the Lord,
my shel-ter and my strong-hold, my God in whom trust

he will cer-tain-ly res-cue you from the snare of the hun-ter
and from the de-struc-tive plague.
He will shel-ter you with his wings;
you will find safe-ty un-der his wings.

His faith-ful-ness is like a shield or a pro-tec-tive wall.
You need not fear the ter-rors of the night,
the ar-row that flies by day,
the plague that stalks in the dark-ness,

Nor the dis-ease that rav-a-ges at noon.
Though a thou-sand may fall be-side you,
and a mul-ti-tude on your right side, it will not reach you.
Cer-tain-ly you will see it with your ver-own eyes

you will see the wick-ed paid back.
For you have tak-en ref-uge in the Lord,
The Lord is my shel-ter, the Most High.
No harm will o-ver-take you;

no ill-ness will come near your home.
For he will or-der his an-gels to pro-tect you in all you do.
They will lift you up in their hands,
so you will not slip and fall on stone.

You will sub-due a li-on and snake;
you will tram-ple un-der-foot a young li-on and ser-pent.
The Lord says, Be-cause he is de-vot-ed to me,
I will de-liv-er him; will pro-tect him

Be-cause he is loy-al to me.
When he calls out to me, will an-swer him.
I will be with him when he is in trou-ble;
I will res-cue him and bring him ho-nor.

I will sat-is-fy him with long life,
and will let him see my sal-va-tion.
I will de-liv-er him; I will pro-tect him
Be-cause he is loy-al to me.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



Psalm 92


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   




It is fit-ting to thank the Lord,
and to sing prais-es to your name, Most High!
It is fit-ting to pro-claim your loy-al love in the morn-ing,
and your faith-ful-ness during the night,

to the ac-com-pa-ni-ment of a ten-stringed in-stru-ment and lyre,
to the ac-com-pa-ni-ment of the med-i-ta-tive tone of the harp.
For you, O Lord, have made me hap-py by your work.
I will sing for joy be-cause of what you have done.

How great are your works, Lord!
Your plans are ver-in-tri-cate!
The spi-rit-ual-ly in-sen-si-tive do not rec-og-nize this;
the fool does not un-der-stand this.

When the wick-ed sprout up like grass,
and all the e-vil-do-ers glis-ten,
it is so that they may be an-ni-hi-lat-ed.
But you, O Lord, reign for-ev-er!

In-deed, look at your en-e-my, Lord!
In-deed, look at how your en-e-mies per-ish!
All the e-vil-do-ers are scat-tered!
You ex-alt my horn like that of wild ox.

I am cov-ered with fresh oil.
I gloat in tri-umph o-ver those who tried to am-bush me;
I hear the de-feat-ed cries
of the e-vil foes who at-tacked me.

The god-ly grow like palm tree;
they grow high like a ce-dar in Leb-a-non.
Plant-ed in the Lord's house,
they grow in the courts of our God.

They bear fruit e-ven when they are old;
they are filled with vi-tal-i-ty and have man-leaves.
So they pro-claim that the Lord,
my pro-tec-tor, is just and nev-er un-fair.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



A reading from Matthew 18:21-35

Then Peter came to him and said, “Lord, how many times must I forgive my brother who sins against me? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, I tell you, but seventy-seven times!

“For this reason, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his slaves. As he began settling his accounts, a man who owed ten thousand talents was brought to him. Because he was not able to repay it, the lord ordered him to be sold, along with his wife, children, and whatever he possessed, and repayment to be made. Then the slave threw himself to the ground before him, saying, ‘Be patient with me, and I will repay you everything. ’ The lord had compassion on that slave and released him, and forgave him the debt. 

After he went out, that same slave found one of his fellow slaves who owed him one hundred silver coins. So he grabbed him by the throat and started to choke him, saying, ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ Then his fellow slave threw himself down and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will repay you. ’ But he refused. Instead, he went out and threw him in prison until he repaid the debt. 

When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were very upset and went and told their lord everything that had taken place. Then his lord called the first slave and said to him, ‘Evil slave! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me! Should you not have shown mercy to your fellow slave, just as I showed it to you?’ And in anger his lord turned him over to the prison guards to torture him until he repaid all he owed. So also my heavenly Father will do to you, if each of you does not forgive your brother from your heart. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Friday - Song of Mary

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All  


My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with fa-vor on his low-ly serv-ant.
From this day all gen-er-a-tions will call me blessed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and ho-ly is his Name.
He has mer-cy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gen-er-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scat-tered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the might-y from their thrones,
and has lift-ed up the low-ly.

He has filled the hun-gry with good things,
and the rich he has sent a-way emp-ty.
He has come to the help of his serv-ant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-mem-bered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fath-ers,
to A-bra-ham and his chil-dren for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Friday Creed

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All  


We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.


Friday - Our Father

Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.
For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,
and de-liv-er us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.

That this eve-ning may be ho-ly, good, and peace-ful,
We en-treat you, Lord.
That your ho-ly an-gels may lead us in paths of peace and good-will,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may de-part this life in your faith and fear,
and be freed from con-dem-na-tion
be-fore the great judg-ment seat of Christ,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may be bound to-geth-er by your Ho-ly Spi-rit
in the com-mun-ion of Bar-na-bas and all your saints,
en-trust-ing one an-oth-er and all our life to Christ,
We en-treat you, Lord.



O God, the King of glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: Do not leave us comfortless, but send us your Holy Spirit to strengthen us, and exalt us to that place where our Savior Christ has gone before; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. 
Amen.

A Collect for Fridays
Lord Jesus Christ, by your death you took away the sting of death: Grant to us your servants so to follow in faith where you have led the way, that we may at length fall asleep peacefully in you and wake up in your likeness; for your tender mercies' sake. 
Amen.

Prayer for Mission
O God and Father of all, whom the whole heavens adore: Let the whole earth also worship you, all nations obey you, all tongues confess and bless you, and men and women everywhere love you and serve you in peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

Al-might-God,
you have giv-en us grace at this time

through your well-be-lov-ed Son

you will be in the midst of them:

Ful-fill now, O Lord, our de-sires and pe-ti-tions

and in the age to come life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.
