Evening Prayer - Monday February 22 2021



Invitation


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

May 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



VB0003 - Sweet Hour of Prayer

[Verse 1]

Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
that calls me from _ a world of care,
and bids me at my Fa-ther's throne
make all my wants _ and wish-es known.
In sea-sons of dis-tress and grief
my soul has oft-en found re-lief,
and oft es-caped the tempt- er's snare
by your re-turn, _ sweet hour of prayer

[Verse 2]

Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
the joys I feel, _ the bliss I share
of those whose an-xious spi-rits burn
with strong de-sires _ for your re-turn!
With such I hast-en to the place
where God my Sa-vior shows his face,
and glad-ly take my sta-tion there,
and wait for you, _ sweet hour of prayer.

[Verse 3]

Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer,
Your wings shall my _ pe-ti-tion bear
To Him whose truth and faith-full-ness
En-gage the wait-_ ing soul to bless,
And since He bids me seek His face,
Be-lieve His word, and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my ev-'ry care,
And wait for you, _ sweet hour of prayer.

Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from/the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Wor-ship the Lord in/the beau-ty of his holi-ness;
let the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.

Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as in-cense,
the lifting up of my hands as the eve-ning sacri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set the Lord al-ways be-fore me;
be-cause he is at my right hand, I shall not fall.
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever 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 44


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O God, we have clearly heard; our an-ces-tors have told us
what you did in their days, in ancient times.
You, by your power, de-feated na-tions
and settled our fathers on their land;

You crushed the people living there
and en-abled our an-ces-tors to occu-py it.
For they did not conquer the land by their swords,
and they did not pre-vail by their strength,

But rather by your power, strength and good fa-vor,
for you were partial to them.
You are my king, O God!
De-cree Ja-cob's de-liver-ance!

By your power we will drive back our ene-mies;
By your strength we will trample down our foes!
For I do not trust in/my bow, and I do not pre-vail by/my sword.
For you de-liver us from our ene-mies;

You hu-mili-ate those who hate us.
In God we boast all day long,
and we will con-tin-ual-ly give thanks to your name.
But you re-ject-ed and em-bar-rassed us!

You did not go into bat-tle with our ar-my.
You made us re-treat from/the en-e-my.
Those who hate us take what-ever they want from us.
You handed us over like sheep to be eat-en;

You scattered us a-mong the na-tions.
You sold your people for a pit-tance;
you did not ask a high price for them.
You made us an object of dis-dain to our neigh-bors;

Those who live on our borders taunt and in-sult us.
You made us an object of ridi-cule a-mong the na-tions;
foreign-ers treat us with con-tempt.
All day long I feel hu-mili-at-ed

And am over-whelmed with shame,
be-fore the vin-dic-tive en-e-my
who ridi-cules and in-sults me.
All this has happened to us,

Even though we have not re-ject-ed you
Nor vio-lated your cov-e-nant with us.
We have not been un-faithful,
nor have we dis-o-beyed your com-mands.

Yet you have battered us, leaving us a heap of ruins
We are over-run by wild dogs;
you have covered us with dark-ness.
If we had re-jected our God,

And spread out our hands in prayer to an-oth-er god,
would not God dis-cover it,
for he knows one's thoughts?
Yet be-cause of you we are killed all day long;

We are treated like sheep at/the slaughter-ing block.
Rouse your-self! Why do you sleep, O Lord?
Wake up! Do not re-ject us for-ev-er!
Why do you look the other way,

And ig-nore the way we are op-pressed and mis-treat-ed?
For _ we lie in/the dirt,
with our bellies pressed to/the ground.
Res-cue us be-cause of your loyal love!

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Readings



A reading from Hebrews 2:11-18


For indeed he who makes holy and those being made holy all have the same origin, and so he is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, saying, “I will proclaim your name to my brothers; in the midst of the assembly I will praise you.” Again he says, “I will be confident in him,” and again, “Here I am, with the children God has given me.” Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, he likewise shared in their humanity, so that through death he could destroy the one who holds the power of death (that is, the devil), and set free those who were held in slavery all their lives by their fear of death. For surely his concern is not for angels, but he is concerned for Abraham’s descendants. Therefore he had to be made like his brothers and sisters in every respect, so that he could become a merciful and faithful high priest in things relating to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people. For since he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - Song of Praise


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Glory to you, Lord God of our fath-ers;
you are worthy of praise; glory to you.
Glory to you for/the radi-ance of your holy Name;
we will praise you and highly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glory to you in/the splen-dor of your tem-ple;
on the throne of your maj-es-ty, glory to you.
Glory to you, seated be-tween the Cher-u-bim;
we will praise you and highly ex-alt you for ev-er.

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


A reading from John 2:1-12


Now on the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran out, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no wine left.” Jesus replied, “Woman, why are you saying this to me? My time has not yet come.” His mother told the servants, “Whatever he tells you, do it.”

Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washing, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus told the servants, “Fill the water jars with water.” So they filled them up to the very top. Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the head steward,” and they did. When the head steward tasted the water that had been turned to wine, not knowing where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), he called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and then the cheaper wine when the guests are drunk. You have kept the good wine until now!” Jesus did this as the first of his miraculous signs, in Cana of Galilee. In this way he revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.

After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples, and they stayed there a few days.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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.
