Invitation



Pentecost - Friday Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord is in his ho-ly tem-ple;
let all the earth keep si-lence be-fore him
I was glad when they said to me,
Let us go to the house of the Lord.

Let the words of my mouth
and the med-i-ta-tion of my heart
be ac-cep-ta-ble in your sight, O Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

Thus says the high and loft-y One
who in-hab-its e-ter-ni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in the high and ho-ly place

Send out your light
and your truth, that they may lead me,
and bring me to your ho-ly hill
and to your dwel-ling place.

Give thanks to the Lord, and call up-on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.
Lord, o-pen our lips.
And our mouth shall pro-claim your praise.

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 - Jubilate


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Be joy-ful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with glad-ness
and come be-fore his pres-ence with a song.
Know this: The Lord him-self is God;

He him-self has made us, and we are his;
we are his peo-ple and the sheep of his pas-ture.
En-ter his gates with thanks-giv-ing;
go into his courts with praise;

Give thanks to him and call up-on his Name.
Be-cause the Lord is good;
his mer-cy is ev-er last-ing;
and his faith-ful-ness en-dures from age to age.


Psalms



Psalm 69


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



De-liv-er me, O God,
for the wat-er has reached my neck.
I sink into the deep mire
where there is no sol-id ground;

I am in deep wat-er,
and the cur-rent o-ver-pow-ers me.
I am ex-haust-ed from shout-ing for help;
my throat is sore; my eyes grow tired of look-ing for my God.

Those who hate me with-out cause
are more nu-mer-ous than the hairs of my head.
Those who want to de-stroy me,
my en-e-mies for no rea-son, out-num-ber me.

They make me re-pay what I did not steal!
O God, you are a-ware of my fool-ish sins;
my guilt is not hid-den from you.
Let none who re-ly on you be dis-graced be-cause of me,

O Sove-reign Lord of Heav-en’s Ar-my!
Let none who seek you be a-shamed
be-cause of me, O God of Is-ra-el!
For I suf-fer hu-mil-i-a-tion for your sake

and am thor-ough-ly dis-graced.
My own broth-ers treat me like a stran-ger;
they act as if I were a for-eign-er.
Cer-tain-ly zeal for your house con-sumes me;

I en-dure the in-sults of those who in-sult you.
I weep and re-frain from eat-ing food,
which causes oth-ers to in-sult me.
I wear sack-cloth and they ridi-cule me.

Those who sit at the cit-y gate gos-sip about me;
drunk-ards mock me in their song.
O Lord, may you hear my prayer
and be fa-vor-ably dis-posed to me!

O God, be-cause of your great loy-al love,
an-swer me with your faith-ful de-liv-er-ance!
Res-cue me from the mud! Don’t let me sink!
De-liv-er me from those who hate me, from the deep wat-er!

Don’t let the cur-rent o-ver-pow-er me!
Don’t let the deep swal-low me up!
Don’t let the Pit de-vour me!
An-swer me, O Lord, for your loy-al love is good!

Be-cause of your great com-pas-sion, turn toward me!
Do not ig-nore your serv-ant, for I am in trou-ble!
An-swer me right a-way!
Come near me and re-deem me!

Be-cause of my en-e-my, res-cue me!
You know how I am in-sult-ed,
hu-mil-i-at-ed and dis-graced;
you can see all my en-e-mies.

Their in-sults are pain-ful and make me lose heart;
I look for sym-pathy, but re-ceive none,
for com-fort-ers, but find none.
They put bit-ter poi-son into my food,

and to quench my thirst they give me vine-gar to drink.
May their din-ing ta-ble be-come a trap be-fore them!
May it be a snare for that group of friends!
May their eyes be blind-ed!

Make them shake vio-lent-ly!
Pour out your judg-ment on them!
May your rag-ing an-ger o-ver-take them!
May their camp be-come des-o-late, their tents un-in-habit-ed!

For they har-ass the one whom you dis-ci-pline;
they spread the news a-bout the suf-fer-ing
of those whom you pun-ish.
Hold them ac-count-able for all their sins!

Do not vin-di-cate them!
May their names be de-let-ed from the scroll of the living!
Do not let their names be list-ed with the god-ly!
I am op-pressed and suf-fer-ing!

O God, de-liv-er and pro-tect me!
I will sing prais-es to God's name!
I will mag-ni-fy him as I give him thanks!
That will please the Lord more than a bull with horns and hooves.

The op-pressed look on; let them re-joice!
You who seek God, may you be en-cour-aged!
For the Lord list-ens to the need-y;
he does not de-spise his cap-tive peo-ple.

Let the heav-ens and the earth praise him,
a-long with the seas and eve-ry-thing that swims in them!
For God will de-liv-er Zi-on
and re-build the cit-ies of Ju-dah,

and his peo-ple will a-gain live in them and pos-sess Zi-on.
The de-scen-dants of his serv-ants will in-her-it it,
and those who are loy-al to him will live in it.
You who seek God, may you be en-cour-aged!

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 Esther 1:1-4, 10-19


The following events happened in the days of Ahasuerus. (I am referring to that Ahasuerus who used to rule over a hundred and twenty-seven provinces extending all the way from India to Ethiopia. ) In those days, as King Ahasuerus sat on his royal throne in Susa the citadel, in the third year of his reign he provided a banquet for all his officials and his servants. The army of Persia and Media was present, as well as the nobles and the officials of the provinces.

He displayed the riches of his royal glory and the splendor of his majestic greatness for a lengthy period of time – a hundred and eighty days, to be exact!

On the seventh day, as King Ahasuerus was feeling the effects of the wine, he ordered Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven eunuchs who attended him, to bring Queen Vashti into the king’s presence wearing her royal high turban. He wanted to show the people and the officials her beauty, for she was very attractive. But Queen Vashti refused to come at the king’s bidding conveyed through the eunuchs. Then the king became extremely angry, and his rage consumed him.

The king then inquired of the wise men who were discerners of the times – for it was the royal custom to confer with all those who were proficient in laws and legalities. Those who were closest to him were Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan. These men were the seven officials of Persia and Media who saw the king on a regular basis and had the most prominent offices in the kingdom. The king asked, “By law, what should be done to Queen Vashti in light of the fact that she has not obeyed the instructions of King Ahasuerus conveyed through the eunuchs?”

Memucan then replied to the king and the officials, “The wrong of Queen Vashti is not against the king alone, but against all the officials and all the people who are throughout all the provinces of King Ahasuerus. For the matter concerning the queen will spread to all the women, leading them to treat their husbands with contempt, saying, ‘When King Ahasuerus gave orders to bring Queen Vashti into his presence, she would not come.’ And this very day the noble ladies of Persia and Media who have heard the matter concerning the queen will respond in the same way to all the royal officials, and there will be more than enough contempt and anger! If the king is so inclined, let a royal edict go forth from him, and let it be written in the laws of Persia and Media that cannot be repealed, that Vashti may not come into the presence of King Ahasuerus, and let the king convey her royalty to another who is more deserving than she.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-light-en the na-tions,
and the glo-ry of your peo-ple Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 Acts 19:11-20


God was performing extraordinary miracles by Paul’s hands, so that when even handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his body were brought to the sick, their diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. But some itinerant Jewish exorcists tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were possessed by evil spirits, saying, “I sternly warn you by Jesus whom Paul preaches. ” (Now seven sons of a man named Sceva, a Jewish high priest, were doing this. ) But the evil spirit replied to them, “I know about Jesus and I am acquainted with Paul, but who are you?” Then the man who was possessed by the evil spirit jumped on them and beat them all into submission. He prevailed against them so that they fled from that house naked and wounded. This became known to all who lived in Ephesus, both Jews and Greeks; fear came over them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was praised. Many of those who had believed came forward, confessing and making their deeds known. Large numbers of those who had practiced magic collected their books and burned them up in the presence of everyone. When the value of the books was added up, it was found to total fifty thousand silver coins. In this way the word of the Lord continued to grow in power and to prevail.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O rul-er of the u-ni-verse, Lord God,

Prayers



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.

now and for ev-er. A-men.

Show us your mer-cy, O Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your min-is-ters with right-eous-ness;
Let your peo-ple sing with joy.

Give peace, O Lord, in all the world;
For on-ly in you can we live in safe-ty.
Lord, keep this na-tion un-der your care;
And guide us in the way of jus-tice and truth.

Let your way be known up-on earth;
Your sav-ing health a-mong all na-tions.

Nor the hope of the poor be tak-en a-way.

And sus-tain us with your Ho-ly Spi-rit.
Show us your mer-cy, O Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.




Collects of the Day


O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; 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 Fridays

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer for Mission

Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name.

Amen.

Al-might-y God, Fa-ther of all mer-cies,
we your un-wor-thy serv-ants give you hum-ble thanks
for all your good-ness and lov-ing kind-ness
to us and to all whom you have made.

We bless you for our cre-a-tion, pres-er-va-tion,

by giv-ing up our selves to your ser-vice,
and by walk-ing be-fore you
in ho-li-ness and right-eous-ness all our days;

through Je-sus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with you and the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
be ho-nor and glo-ry
through-out all the ag-es. A-men.
