Evening Prayer - Tuesday July 27 2021




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

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

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 68


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



God springs into ac-tion!
His _ ene-mies scat-ter;
his adver-saries run from him.
As smoke is driven a-way by/the wind,

So you drive them a-way.
As wax melts be-fore fire,
so the wicked are de-stroyed be-fore God.
But the god-ly are hap-py;

They re-joice be-fore God
and are over-come with joy.
Sing to God! Sing praises to his name!
Ex-alt the one who rides on/the clouds!

For the Lord is his name!
Re-joice be-fore the Lord!
He is a fath-er to/the fath-er-less
and an advo-cate for wid-ows.

God rules from his holy dwell-ing place.
God set-tles those who have been de-serted in their own home;
he frees prison-ers and grants them pros-peri-ty.
But sinful rebels live in/the de-sert.

O God, when you lead your people into bat-tle,
when you march through the waste-land,
the earth shakes, yes,
the heavens pour down rain be-fore God,

The God of Si-nai,
be-fore God, the God of Is-ra-el.
O God, you cause a-bundant show-ers
to fall on your chosen peo-ple.

When they are tired, you sus-tain them,
for you live a-mong them.
You sus-tain the op-pressed
with your good blessing, O God.

The Lord speaks; many, many women spread the good news.
Kings leading ar-mies run a-way!
They run a-way!
The lady of/the house di-vides the spoils.

When you lie down a-mong the sheep-fold,
the wings of/the dove are covered with sil-ver
and with glitter-ing gold.
When the Sove-reign One scatters kings,

Let it snow on Zal-mon!
The mountain of Ba-shan is a tow-er-ing moun-tain;
the mountain of Ba-shan is a mountain with many peaks.
Why do you look with en-vy, O mountains with many peaks,

At/the mountain where God has de-cided to live?
In-deed the Lord will live there perma-nent-ly!
God has count-less char-i-ots;
they _ number in/the thou-sands.

The Lord comes from Si-nai in holy splen-dor.
You as-cend on high, you have taken many cap-tives.
You re-ceive trib-ute from men,
in-cluding even sinful re-bels.

In-deed the Lord God lives there!
The Lord de-serves our praise!
Day after day he carries our bur-dens,
the God who de-livers us.

Our God is a God who de-liv-ers;
the Lord, the sovereign Lord, can res-cue from death.
In-deed God strikes the heads of his ene-mies,
the hairy fore-heads of those who per-sist in re-bel-lion.

The Lord says, I will re-trieve them from Ba-shan,
I will bring them back from/the depths of/the sea,
so that your feet may stomp in their blood,
and your dogs may eat their portion of/the ene-mies'' corps-es.

They see your pro-ces-sions, O God
the pro-ces-sions of my God, my king,
who marches a-long in holy splen-dor.
Sing-ers walk in front; mu-sicians fol-low

Play-ing their stringed in-stru-ments,
in the midst of young women playing tam-bou-rines.
In your large as-sem-blies praise God,
Praise the Lord, in/the as-sem-blies of Is-ra-el!

There is little Benja-min, their rul-er,
and the princes of Ju-dah in their robes,
a-long with/the princes of Zeb-ul-un
and the princes of Naph-ta-li.

God has de-creed that you will be power-ful.
O God, you who have acted on our be-half,
demon-strate your power.
Be-cause of your tem-ple in Je-ru-sa-lem,

Kings bring trib-ute to you.
Sound your bat-tle cry a-gainst the wild beast of/the reed,
and the na-tions that as-sem-ble
like a herd of calves led by bulls!

They hum-ble them-selves
and offer gold and silver as trib-ute.
God scatters the na-tions
that like to do bat-tle.

They come with red cloth from E-gypt,
Ethi-o-pi-a volun-tar-ily offers trib-ute to God.
O kingdoms of/the earth, sing to God!
Sing _ _ praises to/the Lord,

To the one who rides through the sky from an-cient times!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's power,
his sovereign-ty over Is-ra-el,

And the power he re-veals in/the sky!
You are awe-in-spir-ing, O God,
as you e-merge from your holy tem-ple!
It is the God of Is-ra-el who gives the people power and strength.

God de-serves praise!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's power,
his sovereign-ty over Is-ra-el,

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 Acts 16:6-15


They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the message in the province of Asia. When they came to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to do this, so they passed through Mysia and went down to Troas. A vision appeared to Paul during the night: A Macedonian man was standing there urging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us!” After Paul saw the vision, we attempted immediately to go over to Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the good news to them.

We put out to sea from Troas and sailed a straight course to Samothrace, the next day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city of that district of Macedonia, a Roman colony. We stayed in this city for some days. On the Sabbath day we went outside the city gate to the side of the river, where we thought there would be a place of prayer, and we sat down and began to speak to the women who had assembled there. A woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth from the city of Thyatira, a God-fearing woman, listened to us. The Lord opened her heart to respond to what Paul was saying. After she and her household were baptized, she urged us, “If you consider me to be a believer in the Lord, come and stay in my house.” And she persuaded us.

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 6:30-46


Then the apostles gathered around Jesus and told him everything they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come with me privately to an isolated place and rest a while” (for many were coming and going, and there was no time to eat). So they went away by themselves in a boat to some remote place. But many saw them leaving and recognized them, and they hurried on foot from all the towns and arrived there ahead of them. As Jesus came ashore he saw the large crowd, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he taught them many things.

When it was already late, his disciples came to him and said, “This is an isolated place and it is already very late. Send them away so that they can go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy something for themselves to eat.” But he answered them, “You give them something to eat.” And they said, “Should we go and buy bread for 200 silver coins and give it to them to eat?” He said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.” When they found out, they said, “Five—and two fish.” Then he directed them all to sit down in groups on the green grass. So they reclined in groups of hundreds and fifties. He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. He gave them to his disciples to serve the people, and he divided the two fish among them all. They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the broken pieces and fish that were left over, 12 baskets full. Now there were 5,000 men who ate the bread.

Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dispersed the crowd. After saying goodbye to them, he went to the mountain to pray.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



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.
