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!

Monday - Song of Praise


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




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.

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.

Tell of His power to forgive

Unto your mission be true [Refrain]
