Evening Prayer - Thursday February 4 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

[Verse 1]

Deep riv-er,
my home is o-ver Jor-dan.
Deep riv-er, Lord,
I want to cross o-ver in-to camp-ground.
Oh, don't you want to go
to that gos-pel feast,
that prom-ised land where all is peace?
Oh, deep riv-er, Lord,
I want to cross o-ver in-to camp-ground.

[Verse 2]

Deep riv-er,
my heart is o-ver Jor-dan.
Deep riv-er, Lord,
I want to cross o-ver in-to camp-ground.
Oh, don't you want to join
all those gone be-fore
wait-ing, rest-ing where all is peace?
Oh, deep riv-er, Lord,
I want to cross o-ver in-to camp-ground.

Psalm 74


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Why, O God, have you perma-nent-ly re-ject-ed us?
Why does your an-ger burn a-gainst the sheep of your pas-ture?
Re-member your peo-ple
whom you ac-quired in an-cient times,

whom you res-cued
so they could be your very own na-tion,
as well as Mount Zi-on,
where you dwell for-ev-er!

Hur-ry to/the per-ma-nent ruin,
and to all the dam-age the ene-my has done to/the tem-ple!
Your ene-mies roar in/the mid-dle of your sanc-tu-ar-y;
they set up their bat-tle flags.

They in-vade like lum-ber-jacks
swing-ing their ax-es in a thick for-est.
And now they are tear-ing down all its en-grav-ings
with ax-es and crow-bars.

They set your sanc-tu-ar-y on fire;
they des-e-crate your dwell-ing place
by knock-ing it to/the ground.
They say to them-selves, We will op-press all of them.

They burn down all the places
where people wor-ship God in/the land.
We do not see any signs of God's pres-ence;
there are no long-er any proph-ets

And we have no one
to tell us how long this will last.
How long, O God, will the ad-ver-sar-y hurl in-sult?
Will the ene-my blas-pheme your name for-ev-er?

Why do you re-main in-ac-tive?
In-ter-vene and de-stroy him!
But God has been my king from an-cient times,
per-form-ing acts of de-liver-ance on/the earth.

You de-stroyed the sea by your strength;
you shat-tered the heads of/the sea mon-ster in/the wat-er.
You crushed the heads of Le-vi-a-than;
you fed him to/the people who live a-long the coast.

You broke o-pen the spring and the stream;
you dried up per-pet-ual-ly flow-ing riv-ers.
You es-tab-lished the cy-cle of day and night;
you put the moon and sun in place.

You set up all the bound-a-rys of/the earth;
you cre-at-ed the cy-cle of sum-mer and win-ter.
Re-member how the ene-my hurls in-sult, O Lord,
and how a fool-ish na-tion blas-phemes your name!

Do not hand the life of your dove
o-ver to a wild an-i-mal!
Do not con-tin-ue to dis-re-gard the lives
of your op-pressed peo-ple!

Re-member your cov-e-nant prom-ise,
for the dark re-gions of/the earth
are full of places where vio-lence rules.
Do not let the af-flict-ed be turned back in shame!

Let the op-pressed and poor praise your name!
Rise up, O God! De-fend your hon-or!
Re-member how fools in-sult you all day long!
Do not dis-re-gard what your ene-mies say,

Nor the un-ceas-ing shouts
of those who de-fy you.
Rise up, O God!
De-fend your hon-or! A-men.

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 Galatians 5:1-15


For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery. Listen! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you at all! And I testify again to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. You who are trying to be declared righteous by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace! For through the Spirit, by faith, we wait expectantly for the hope of righteousness. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision carries any weight—the only thing that matters is faith working through love.

You were running well; who prevented you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from the one who calls you! A little yeast makes the whole batch of dough rise! I am confident in the Lord that you will accept no other view. But the one who is confusing you will pay the penalty, whoever he may be. Now, brothers and sisters, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been removed. I wish those agitators would go so far as to castrate themselves!

For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity to indulge your flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law can be summed up in a single commandment, namely, “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” However, if you continually bite and devour one another, beware that you are not consumed by one another.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O rul-er of/the uni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-pas-sing human under-stand-ing.
Your ways are ways of righteous-ness and truth,

O King of all the ag-es.
Who can fail to do you hom-age, Lord,
and sing the praises of your Name?
for you only are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,
be-cause your just and holy works
have been re-vealed. Alle-lu-ia, a-men!

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.


A reading from Mark 8:27-9:1


Then Jesus and his disciples went to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” They said, “John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and still others, one of the prophets.” He asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him.

Then Jesus began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke openly about this. So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But after turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.”

Then Jesus called the crowd, along with his disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wants to become my follower, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me and because of the gospel will save it. For what benefit is it for a person to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his life? What can a person give in exchange for his life? For if anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” And he said to them, “I tell you the truth, there are some standing here who will not experience death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty sav-ior,
born of/the house of his servant Da-vid.

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

and to re-member his holy cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from/the hands of our ene-mies,
Free to wor-ship him without fear,

ho-ly and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of/the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his people knowledge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In/the tender com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and in/the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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.
