Invitation



Friday - Pentecost Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord is in his holy tem-ple;
let all the earth keep silence 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 medi-ta-tion of my heart
be ac-cepta-ble in your sight, O Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

Thus says the high and lofty One
who in-habits e-terni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in/the high and holy place

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

Give thanks to/the Lord, and call 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.

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.


Friday - Venite


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Come, let's sing to/the Lord;
let's shout for joy to/the Rock of our sal-va-tion.
Let's come be-fore his presence with thanks-giv-ing
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is/a great God,
and a great King a-bove all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of/the earth,
and the heights of/the hills are his al-so.

The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let's bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel be-fore the Lord our Mak-er.

For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pas-ture
and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that to-day you would hearken to his voice!


Psalms



Psalm 69


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



De-liver me, O God,
for the water 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 current over-pow-ers me.
I am ex-hausted from shout-ing for help;
my throat is sore; my eyes grow tired of looking for my God.

Those who hate me with-out cause
are more numer-ous than the hairs of my head.
Those who want to de-stroy me,
my ene-mies for no rea-son, out-number 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 hidden from you.
Let none who re-ly on you be dis-graced be-cause of me,

O Sove-reign Lord of Heaven’s Ar-my!
Let none who seek you be a-shamed
be-cause of me, O God of Is-ra-el!
For I suffer hu-mili-a-tion for your sake

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

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

Those who sit at/the cit-y gate gossip about me;
drunkards mock me in their song.
O Lord, may you hear my prayer
and be favor-ably dis-posed to me!

O God, be-cause of your great loyal love,
answer me with your faithful de-liver-ance!
Res-cue me from/the mud! Don’t let me sink!
De-liver me from those who hate me, from/the deep wat-er!

Don’t let the current over-pow-er me!
Don’t let the deep swallow me up!
Don’t let the Pit de-vour me!
Answer me, O Lord, for your loyal love is good!

Be-cause of your great com-passion, turn toward me!
Don't ig-nore your servant, for I am in trou-ble!
Answer me right a-way!
Come near me and re-deem me!

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

Their in-sults are pain-ful and make me lose heart;
I look for sympa-thy, but re-ceive none,
for comfort-ers, but find none.
They put bitter poi-son into my food,

and to quench my thirst they give me vine-gar to drink.
May their dining table 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 raging an-ger over-take them!
May their camp be-come deso-late, their tents un-in-habit-ed!

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

Do not vindi-cate them!
May their names be de-leted from/the scroll of/the liv-ing!
Do not let their names be list-ed with/the god-ly!
I am op-pressed and suffer-ing!

O God, de-liver and pro-tect me!
I will sing praises to God's name!
I will magni-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 listens to/the need-y;
he does not de-spise his cap-tive peo-ple.

Let the heavens and the earth praise him,
a-long with/the seas and every-thing that swims in them!
For God will de-liver Zi-on
and re-build the cities of Ju-dah,

and his people will a-gain live in them and pos-sess Zi-on.
The de-scendants of his servants will in-herit it,
and those who are loyal to him will live in it.
You who seek God, may you be en-cour-aged!

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 2 Kings 1:2-17


Ahaziah fell through a window lattice in his upper chamber in Samaria and was injured. He sent messengers with these orders, “Go, ask Baal Zebub, the god of Ekron, if I will survive this injury.”

But the angel of the Lord told Elijah the Tishbite, “Get up; go to meet the messengers from the king of Samaria. Say this to them: ‘You must think there is no God in Israel! That explains why you are on your way to seek an oracle from Baal Zebub the god of Ekron. Therefore this is what the Lord has said, “You will not leave the bed you lie on, for you will certainly die!”’” So Elijah went on his way.

When the messengers returned to the king, he asked them, “Why have you returned?” They replied, “A man came up to meet us. He told us, ‘Go back to the king who sent you and tell him, “This is what the Lord has said: ‘You must think there is no God in Israel! That explains why you are sending for an oracle from Baal Zebub, the god of Ekron. Therefore you will not leave the bed you lie on, for you will certainly die.’”’” The king asked them, “Describe the appearance of this man who came up to meet you and told you these things.” They replied, “He was a hairy man and had a leather belt tied around his waist.” The king said, “He is Elijah the Tishbite.”

The king sent a captain and his 50 soldiers to retrieve Elijah. The captain went up to him while he was sitting on the top of a hill. He told him, “Prophet, the king says, ‘Come down!’” Elijah replied to the captain, “If I am indeed a prophet, may fire come down from the sky and consume you and your 50 soldiers!” Fire then came down from the sky and consumed him and his 50 soldiers.

The king sent another captain and his 50 soldiers to retrieve Elijah. He went up and told him, “Prophet, this is what the king says, ‘Come down at once!’” Elijah replied to them, “If I am indeed a prophet, may fire come down from the sky and consume you and your 50 soldiers!” Fire from God came down from the sky and consumed him and his 50 soldiers.

The king sent a third captain and his 50 soldiers. This third captain went up and fell on his knees before Elijah. He begged for mercy, “Prophet, please have respect for my life and for the lives of these 50 servants of yours. Indeed, fire came down from the sky and consumed the two captains who came before me, along with their men. So now, please have respect for my life.” The angel of the Lord said to Elijah, “Go down with him. Don’t be afraid of him.” So he got up and went down with him to the king.

Elijah said to the king, “This is what the Lord has said, ‘You sent messengers to seek an oracle from Baal Zebub, the god of Ekron. Is it because there is no God in Israel from whom you can seek a message? Therefore you will not leave the bed you lie on, for you will certainly die.’”

And he did die in keeping with the Lord’s message that he had spoken through Elijah. In the second year of the reign of King Jehoram son of Jehoshaphat over Judah, Ahaziah’s brother Jehoram replaced him as king of Israel, because he had no son.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - You are God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we ac-claim you;
You are the e-ter-nal Fath-er:
All cre-a-tion wor-ships you.

To you all an-gels, all the powers of heav-en,
Cher-u-bim and Ser-a-phim, sing in end-less praise:
Holy, ho-ly, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heav-en and earth are full of your glo-ry.

The glori-ous compan-y of a-postles praises you.
The no-ble fellow-ship of proph-ets praises you.
The white-robed army of mar-tyrs praises you.
Through-out the world the holy Church ac-claims you;

Fath-er, of majes-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and only Son, worthy of all wor-ship,
and the Ho-ly Spi-rit, advo-cate and guide.
Three in one, we praise you for ev-er.

You, Christ, are the king of glo-ry,
the e-ter-nal Son of/the Fath-er.
When you be-came man to set us free
you did not shun the Vir-gin's womb.

You over-came the sting of death
and o-pened the kingdom of heaven to all be-liev-ers.
You are seated at God's right hand in glo-ry.
We be-lieve that you will come and be our judge.

Come then, Lord, and help your peo-ple,
bought with/the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glo-ry ever-last-ing.


A reading from Matthew 5:11-16



Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things about you falsely on account of me. Rejoice and be glad because your reward is great in heaven, for they persecuted the prophets before you in the same way.

“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people! You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden. People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor      Soprano      Response      Cantor      Bass      Alto      PDF      All     



Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a- fraid.
For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure de- fense,
and he will be my Sav- ior.

There-fore you shall draw water with re- joic- ing
from the springs of sal- va- tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to/the Lord and call up- on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo- ples;
see that they re-member that his Name is ex- alt- ed.
Sing the praises of/the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-habit-ants of Zi- on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in/the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of 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.

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.
