Evening Prayer - Monday August 31 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


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 9


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I will thank the Lord with all my heart!
I will tell a-bout all your a-maz-ing deeds!
I will be hap-py and re-joice in you!
I will sing prais-es to you, Most High!

When my en-e-mies turn back,
they trip and are de-feat-ed be-fore you.
For you de-fend-ed my just cause;
from your throne you pro-nounced just de-ci-sion.

You ter-ri-fied the na-tions with your bat-tle cry;
you de-stroyed the wick-ed;
you per-ma-nent-ly wiped out all mem-o-ry of them.
The en-e-my's cit-ies have been re-duced to per-ma-nent ruin;

You de-stroyed their cit-ies;
all mem-o-ry of the en-e-mies has per-ished.
But the Lord rules for-ev-er;
he reigns in just man-ner.

He judg-es the world fair-ly;
he makes just le-gal de-ci-sions for the na-tions.
Thus the Lord pro-vides safe-ty for the op-pressed;
he pro-vides safe-ty in times of trou-ble.

Your loy-al fol-low-ers trust in you,
for you, Lord, do not a-ban-don those who seek your help.
Sing prais-es to the Lord, who rules in Zi-on!
Tell the na-tions what he has done!

For the one who takes re-venge a-gainst mur-der-ers
took no-tice of the op-pressed;
he did not o-ver-look their cry for help
when they prayed: Have mer-cy on me, Lord!

See how I am op-pressed
by all those who hate me,
You who can snatch me
a-way from the gates of death!

Then I will tell a-bout all your praise-wor-thy acts;
in the gates of Daugh-ter Zi-on
will re-joice
be-cause of your de-liv-er-ance.

The na-tions fell into the pit they had made;
their feet were caught in the net they had hid-den.
The Lord re-vealed him-self;
He ac-com-plished jus-tice;

The wick-ed were en-snared by their own ac-tion.
The wick-ed are turned back and sent to She-ol;
this is the des-ti-ny
of all the na-tions that ig-nore God,

For the need-y
are not per-ma-nent-ly ig-nored,
the hopes of the op-pressed
are not for-ev-er dashed.

Rise up, Lord! Don't let men be de-fi-ant!
May the na-tions be judged in your pres-ence!
Ter-ri-fy them, Lord!
Let the na-tions know they are mere mor-tals!

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 15


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, who may be a guest in your home?
Who may live on your ho-ly hill?
Who-ev-er lives a blame-less life,
does what is right, and speaks hon-est-ly.

He does not slan-der,
or do harm to oth-ers, or in-sult his neigh-bors.
He de-spis-es a rep-ro-bate,
but hon-ors the Lord's loy-al fol-low-ers.

He makes firm com-mit-ments
and does not re-nege on his prom-ise.
He does not charge inter-est
when he lends his mon-ey.

He does not take bribes
to tes-ti-fy a-gainst the in-no-cent.
The one who lives like this
will nev-er be shak-en.

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 Acts 11:19-30


Now those who had been scattered because of the persecution that took place over Stephen went as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, speaking the message to no one but Jews. But there were some men from Cyprus and Cyrene among them who came to Antioch and began to speak to the Greeks too, proclaiming the good news of the Lord Jesus. The hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord. A report about them came to the attention of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 

When he came and saw the grace of God, he rejoiced and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with devoted hearts, because he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith, and a significant number of people were brought to the Lord. Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught a significant number of people. Now it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians.

At that time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. One of them, named Agabus, got up and predicted by the Spirit that a severe famine was about to come over the whole inhabited world. (This took place during the reign of Claudius.) So the disciples, each in accordance with his financial ability, decided to send relief to the brothers living in Judea. They did so, sending their financial aid to the elders by Barnabas and Saul.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Glo-ry to you, Lord God of our fath-ers;
you are wor-thy of praise; glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you for the ra-di-ance of your ho-ly Name;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you in the splen-dor of your tem-ple;
on the throne of your maj-es-ty, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, seat-ed be-tween the Cher-u-bim;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you, be-hold-ing the depths;
in the high vault of heav-en, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.


A reading from John 8:21-32


Then Jesus said to them again, “I am going away, and you will look for me but will die in your sin. Where I am going you cannot come.” So the Jewish leaders began to say, “Perhaps he is going to kill himself, because he says, ‘Where I am going you cannot come.’” Jesus replied, “You people are from below; I am from above. You people are from this world; I am not from this world. Thus I told you that you will die in your sins. For unless you believe that I am he, you will die in your sins.”

So they said to him, “Who are you?” Jesus replied, “What I have told you from the beginning. I have many things to say and to judge about you, but the Father who sent me is truthful, and the things I have heard from him I speak to the world.” (They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father.)

Then Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he, and I do nothing on my own initiative, but I speak just what the Father taught me. And the one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, because I always do those things that please him.” While he was saying these things, many people believed in him.

Then Jesus said to those Judeans who had believed him, “If you continue to follow my teaching, you are really my disciples and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Collect of the Day

 

Almighty God, Lord of heaven and earth: We humbly pray that your gracious providence may give and preserve to our use the harvests of the land and of the seas, and may prosper all who labor to gather them, that we, who are constantly receiving good things from your hand, may always give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Peace

Most holy God, the source of all good desires, all right judgements, and all just works: Give to us, your servants, that peace which the world cannot give, so that our minds may be fixed on the doing of your will, and that we, being delivered from the fear of all enemies, may live in peace and quietness; through the mercies of Christ Jesus our Savior.

Amen.

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.

Evening Prayer - Friday August 28 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.

Psalm 22


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



My God, my God,
why have you a-ban-doned me?
groan in prayer,
but help seems far a-way.

My God, I cry out dur-ing the day,
but you do not an-swer,
and dur-ing the night
my prayers do not let up.

You are ho-ly;
you re-ceive the prais-es of Is-ra-el.
In you our an-ces-tors trust-ed;
they trust-ed in you and you res-cued them.

To you they cried out, and they were saved;
in you they trust-ed and they were not dis-ap-point-ed.
But I am a worm, not man;
peo-ple in-sult me and de-spise me.

All who see me taunt me;
they mock me and shake their heads.
They say, Com-mit your-self to the Lord!
Let the Lord res-cue him!

Let the Lord de-liv-er him,
for he de-lights in him.
Yes, you are the one
who brought me out from the womb

and made me feel se-cure
set up-on my moth-er's breast.
I have been de-pend-ent on you since birth;
from the time I came out of my moth-er's womb

you have been my God.
Do not re-main far a-way from me,
for trou-ble is near
and I have no one to help me.

Man-y bulls sur-round me;
pow-er-ful bulls of Ba-shan hem me in.
They o-pen their mouths to de-vour me
like a roar-ing li-on that rips its prey.

My strength drains a-way like wat-er;
all my bones are dis-lo-cat-ed;
my heart is like wax;
it melts a-way in-side me.

The roof of my mouth
is as dry as a piece of pot-ter-y;
my tongue sticks to my gums.
You set me in the dust of death.

Yes, wild dogs sur-round me
a gang of e-vil men crowd a-round me;
like li-on
they pin my hands and feet.

I can count all my bones;
my en-e-mies are gloat-ing o-ver me in tri-umph.
They are di-vid-ing up my clothes a-mong them;
they are roll-ing dice for my gar-ments.

But you, Lord,
do not re-main far a-way!
You are my source of strength!
Hur-ry and help me, Lord!

De-liv-er me from the sword!
Save my life from the claws of the wild dogs!
Res-cue me from the mouth of the li-on,
and from the horns of the wild ox-en!

You have an-swered me!
will de-clare your name
to all my coun-try-men!
In the mid-dle of the as-sem-bly

will praise you!
You loy-al fol-low-ers of the Lord, praise him!
All you de-scend-ants of Ja-cob, hon-or him!
All you de-scend-ants of Is-ra-el, stand in awe of him!

For he did not de-spise
or de-test the suf-fering of the op-pressed;
he did not ig-nore him;
when he cried out to him, he re-spond-ed.

You are the rea-son, Lord,
I of-fer praise in the great as-sem-bly;
I will ful-fill my prom-is-es
be-fore the Lord's loy-al fol-low-ers.

Let the op-pressed eat
and let them be sat-is-fied!
Let those who seek his help
praise the Lord for-ev-er!

May you live for-ev-er!
Let all the peo-ple of the earth
ac-knowl-edge the Lord and turn to him!
Let all the na-tions wor-ship you!

For the Lord is king
and rules o-ver the na-tions.
All of the thriv-ing peo-ple of the earth
will join the cel-e-bra-tion and wor-ship;

all those who are de-scend-ing into the grave
will bow down be-fore him,
in-clud-ing those who can-not pre-serve their lives.
A whole gen-er-a-tion will serve him;

They will tell the next gen-er-a-tion a-bout the Lord.
They will tell a-bout his sav-ing deeds;
they will tell a fu-ture gen-er-a-tion
what he has ac-com-plished.

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 Acts 10:34-48


Then Peter started speaking: “I now truly understand that God does not show favoritism in dealing with people, but in every nation the person who fears him and does what is right is welcomed before him. You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, proclaiming the good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all) – you know what happened throughout Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John announced: with respect to Jesus from Nazareth, that God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with him. We are witnesses of all the things he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him up on the third day and caused him to be seen, not by all the people, but by us, the witnesses God had already chosen, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to warn them that he is the one appointed by God as judge of the living and the dead. About him all the prophets testify, that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”

While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all those who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had accompanied Peter were greatly astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles, for they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God. Then Peter said, “No one can withhold the water for these people to be baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?” So he gave orders to have them baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay for several days.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his peo-ple and set them free.
He has raised up for us a might-sav-ior,
born of the house of his serv-ant Da-vid.

Through his ho-ly proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our en-e-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-mem-ber his ho-ly cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,

Free to wor-ship him with-out fear,

ho-ly and right-eous in his sight

And you, my child, shall be called

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his peo-ple knowl-edge of sal-va-tion

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness

and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

A reading from John 7:37-52


On the last day of the feast, the greatest day, Jesus stood up and shouted out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. Just as the scripture says, ‘From within him will flow rivers of living water.’” (Now he said this about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were going to receive, for the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

When they heard these words, some of the crowd began to say, “This really is the Prophet!” Others said, “This is the Christ!” But still others said, “No, for the Christ doesn’t come from Galilee, does he? Don’t the scriptures say that the Christ is a descendant of David and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?” So there was a division in the crowd because of Jesus. Some of them were wanting to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him.

Then the officers returned to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, “Why didn’t you bring him back with you?” The officers replied, “No one ever spoke like this man!” Then the Pharisees answered, “You haven’t been deceived too, have you? None of the members of the ruling council or the Pharisees have believed in him, have they? But this rabble who do not know the law are accursed!”

Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus before and who was one of the rulers, said, “Our law doesn’t condemn a man unless it first hears from him and learns what he is doing, does it?” They replied, “You aren’t from Galilee too, are you? Investigate carefully and you will see that no prophet comes from Galilee!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Splen-dor and ho-nor and king-ly pow-er
are yours by right, Lord our God,
For you cre-at-ed eve-ry-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-at-ed and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fam-i-ly, lan-guage, peo-ple, and na-tion,
a king-dom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be wor-ship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for ev-er and for ev-er-more.

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.

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.

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.
