Evening Prayer - Friday July 17 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 35


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All    



O Lord, fight those who fight with me!
At-tack those who at-tack me!
Grab your small shield and large shield,
and rise up to help me!

Use your spear and lance
a-gainst those who chase me!
As-sure me with these words:
I am your de-liv-er-er!

May those who seek my life
be em-bar-rassed and hu-mil-i-at-ed!
May those who plan to harm me
be turned back and a-shamed!

May they be like wind driv-en chaff,
as the Lord's an-gel at-tacks them!
May their path be dark and slip-per-y,
as the Lord's an-gel chas-es them!

I did not harm them,
but they hid net to catch me
and dug a pit to trap me.
Let de-struc-tion take them by sur-prise!

Let the net they hid catch them!
Let them fall into de-struc-tion!
Then I will re-joice in the Lord
and be hap-py be-cause of his de-liv-er-ance.

With all my strength will say,
O Lord, who can com-pare to you?
You res-cue the op-pressed
from those who try to o-ver-pow-er them;

the op-pressed and need-y
from those who try to rob them.
Vio-lent men per-jure them-selves,
and false-ly ac-cuse me.

They re-pay me e-vil for the good have done;
I am o-ver-whelmed with sor-row.
When they were sick, I wore sack-cloth,
and re-frained from eat-ing food.

If I am ly-ing,
may my prayers go un-an-swered!
mourned for them
as I would for a friend or my broth-er.

I bowed down in sor-row
as if I were mourn-ing for my moth-er.
But when stum-bled,
they re-joiced and ga-thered to-geth-er;

they ga-thered to-geth-er to am-bush me.
They tore at me with-out stop-ping to rest.
When stum-bled,
they taunt-ed me re-lent-less-ly,

and tried to bite me.
O Lord, how long are you go-ing to watch this?
Res-cue me from their de-struc-tive at-tack;
guard my life from the young lions!

Then I will give you thanks in the great as-sem-bly;
I will praise you be-fore a large crowd of peo-ple!
Do not let my en-e-mies gloat o-ver me!
Do not let those who hate me car-ry out their scheme!

For they do not try to make peace with oth-ers,
but plan ways to de-ceive
those who live peace-ful-ly in the land.
They are read-to de-vour me;

they say, A-ha! A-ha! We've got you!
But you take no-tice, Lord; do not be si-lent!
O Lord, do not re-main far a-way from me!
Rouse your-self, wake up and vin-di-cate me!

My God and Lord, de-fend my just cause!
Vin-di-cate me by your jus-tice, Lord my God!
Do not let them gloat o-ver me!
Do not let them say to them-selves, A-ha!

We have what we want-ed!
Do not let them say, We have de-voured him!
May those who re-joice in my trou-bles
be to-tal-ly em-bar-rassed and a-shamed!

May those who ar-ro-gant-ly taunt me be cov-ered with shame
May those who de-sire my vin-di-ca-tion
shout for joy and re-joice!
May they con-tin-ual-ly say, May the Lord be praised,

for he wants his serv-ant to be se-cure.
Then I will tell oth-ers a-bout your jus-tice,
and praise you all day long.
May the Lord be praised for-ev-er!

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.



Readings


A reading from Matthew 26:17-25


Now on the first day of the feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?” He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is near. I will observe the Passover with my disciples at your house. ”’” So the disciples did as Jesus had instructed them, and they prepared the Passover. 

When it was evening, he took his place at the table with the twelve. And while they were eating he said, “I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me. ” They became greatly distressed and each one began to say to him, “Surely not I, Lord?” He answered, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. The Son of Man will go as it is written about him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for him if he had never been born. ” Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely not I, Rabbi?” Jesus replied, “You have said it yourself. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Friday - Song of Mary


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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     PDF     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.

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 we may be bound to-geth-er by your Ho-ly Spi-rit

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

and you have prom-ised
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

Be to the helpless a helper indeed
Unto your mission be true [Refrain]
