Evening Prayer - Thursday June 18, 2020

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 85


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     




O Lord, you showed fa-vor to your land;
you re-stored the well-be-ing of Ja-cob.
You par-doned the wrong-do-ing of your peo-ple;
you for-gave all their sin.

You with-drew all your fu-ry;
you turned back from your rag-ing an-ger.
Re-store us, O God our de-liv-er-er!
Do not be dis-pleased with us!

Will you stay mad at us for-ev-er?
Will you re-main an-gry through-out fu-ture gen-er-a-tions?
Will you not re-vive us once more?
Then your peo-ple will re-joice in you!

O Lord, show us your loy-al love!
Be-stow on us your de-liv-er-ance!
I will lis-ten to what God the Lord says.
For he will make peace with his peo-ple, his faith-ful fol-low-ers.

Yet they must not re-turn to their fool-ish ways.
Cer-tain-ly his loy-al fol-low-ers will soon ex-pe-ri-ence his de-liv-er-ance;
then his splen-dor will a-gain ap-pear in our land.
Loy-al love and faith-ful-ness meet;

De-liv-er-ance and peace greet each oth-er with kiss.
Faith-ful-ness grows from the ground,
and de-liv-er-ance looks down from the sky.
Yes, the Lord will be-stow his good bles-sing,

O Lord, show us your loy-al love!
And our land will yield its crops.
De-liv-er-ance goes be-fore him,
and pre-pares path-way for him.

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 86


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     




Lis-ten O Lord! An-swer me!
For I am op-pressed and need-y.
Pro-tect me, for I am loy-al! You are my God;
de-liv-er your serv-ant who trusts in you!

Have mer-cy on me, Lord,
for I cry out to you all day long!
Make your serv-ant glad,
for to you, Lord, pray!

Cer-tain-ly O Lord, you are kind and for-giv-ing,
and show great faith-ful-ness to all who cry out to you.
O Lord, hear my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to my plea for mer-cy!

In my time of trou-ble I cry out to you,
for you will an-swer me.
None can com-pare to you a-mong the gods, Lord!
Your ex-ploits are in-com-pa-ra-ble!

All the na-tions, whom you cre-at-ed,
will come and wor-ship you, Lord.
They will ho-nor your name.
For you are great and do a-maz-ing things.

You a-lone are God.
O Lord, teach me how you want me to live!
Then I will o-bey your com-mand.
Make me whole-heart-ed-ly com-mit-ted to you!

O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart!
I will ho-nor your name con-tin-ual-ly!
For you will ex-tend your great loy-al love to me,
and will de-liv-er my life from the depths of She-ol.

O God, ar-ro-gant men at-tack me;
a gang of ruth-less men, who do not re-spect you, seek my life.
But you, O Lord, are a com-pas-sion-ate and mer-ci-ful God.
You are pa-tient and dem-on-strate great loy-al love and faith-ful-ness.

Turn toward me and have mer-cy on me!
Give your serv-ant your strength!
De-liv-er this son of your fe-male serv-ant!
Show me ev-i-dence of your fa-vor!

Then those who hate me will see it and be a-shamed,
for you, O Lord, will help me and com-fort me.
Make your serv-ant glad,
for to you, Lord, pray!

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 18:10-20
“See that you do not disdain one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. What do you think? If someone owns a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go look for the one that went astray? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. In the same way, your Father in heaven is not willing that one of these little ones be lost.

“If your brother sins, go and show him his fault when the two of you are alone. If he listens to you, you have regained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others with you, so that at the testimony of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. If he refuses to listen to the church, treat him like a Gentile or a tax collector.

“I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you release on earth will have been released in heaven. Again, I tell you the truth, if two of you on earth agree about whatever you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Thursday - 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.




Hymnal 1982 (S105) The Nicene Creed



We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of his Father.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried;

On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory,
to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, and giver of Life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son
he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Our Fath-er in heav-en,

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.

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All


That this eve-ning may be ho-ly, good, and peace-ful,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may de-part this life in your faith and fear,

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 the Presence of Christ
Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past; be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope, that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake of your love. 
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.
