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 - 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 presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord him-self is God;

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

Give thanks to him and call on his Name.
Be-cause the Lord is good;
his mercy is ever last-ing;
and his faithful-ness en-dures from age to age.


Psalms



Psalm 88


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O Lord God who de-livers me!
By day I cry out and at night I pray be-fore you.
Lis-ten to my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to my cry for help!

For my life is filled with trou-bles
and I am ready to en-ter She-ol.
They treat me like those
who de-scend into the grave.

I am like a help-less man,
a-drift a-mong the dead,
like corps-es ly-ing in/the grave,
whom you re-member no more,

and who are cut off from your power.
You place me in/the low-est re-gions of/the Pit,
in/the dark place, in/the water]-y depths.
Your an-ger bears down on me,

and you over-whelm me with all your waves.
You cause those who know me to keep their dis-tance;
you make me an ap-pall-ing sight to them.
I am trapped and cannot get free.

My eyes grow weak be-cause of op-pres-sion.
I call out to you, O Lord, all day long;
I spread out my hands in prayer to you.
Do you ac-com-plish a-mazing things for/the dead?

Do the de-parted spirits rise up
to give you thanks or praise?
Is your loyal love pro-claimed in/the grave,
or your faithful-ness in/the place of/the dead?

Are your a-mazing deeds ex-pe-rienced in/the dark re-gions,
or your de-liver-ance in/the land of o-bliv-i-on?
As for me, I cry out to you, O Lord;
in/the morn-ing my prayer con-fronts you.

O Lord, why do you re-ject me,
and pay no at-ten-tion to me?
I am op-pressed
and have been on/the verge of death since my youth.

I have been sub-jected to your hor-rors
and I am numb with pain.
Your an-ger over-whelms me;
your ter-rors de-stroy me.

They sur-round me like water all day long;
they join forces and en-circle me.
You cause my friends and neigh-bors to keep their dis-tance;
those who know me leave me a-lone in/the dark-ness.

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 9:17-37


Now the watchman was standing on the tower in Jezreel and saw Jehu’s troops approaching. He said, “I see troops!” Joram ordered, “Send a rider out to meet them and have him ask, ‘Is everything all right?’” So the horseman went to meet him and said, “This is what the king says, ‘Is everything all right?’” Jehu replied, “None of your business! Follow me.” The watchman reported, “The messenger reached them, but hasn’t started back.” So he sent a second horseman out to them and he said, “This is what the king says, ‘Is everything all right?’” Jehu replied, “None of your business! Follow me.” The watchman reported, “He reached them, but hasn’t started back. The one who drives the lead chariot drives like Jehu son of Nimshi; he drives recklessly.” Joram ordered, “Hitch up my chariot.” When his chariot had been hitched up, King Joram of Israel and King Ahaziah of Judah went out in their respective chariots to meet Jehu. They met up with him in the plot of land that had once belonged to Naboth of Jezreel.

When Joram saw Jehu, he asked, “Is everything all right, Jehu?” He replied, “How can everything be all right as long as your mother Jezebel promotes idolatry and pagan practices?” Joram turned his chariot around and took off. He said to Ahaziah, “It’s a trap, Ahaziah!” Jehu aimed his bow and shot an arrow right between Joram’s shoulders. The arrow went through his heart and he fell to his knees in his chariot. Jehu ordered his officer Bidkar, “Pick him up and throw him into the part of the field that once belonged to Naboth of Jezreel. Remember, you and I were riding together behind his father, Ahab, when the Lord pronounced this oracle against him, ‘“Know for sure that I saw the shed blood of Naboth and his sons yesterday,” says the Lord, “and that I will give you what you deserve right here in this plot of land,” says the Lord.’ So now pick him up and throw him into this plot of land, just as in the Lord’s message.”

When King Ahaziah of Judah saw what happened, he took off up the road to Beth Haggan. Jehu chased him and ordered, “Shoot him too.” They shot him while he was driving his chariot up the ascent of Gur near Ibleam. He fled to Megiddo and died there. His servants took his body back to Jerusalem and buried him in his tomb with his ancestors in the City of David. Ahaziah had become king over Judah in the eleventh year of Joram son of Ahab.

Jehu approached Jezreel. When Jezebel heard the news, she put on some eye liner, fixed up her hair, and leaned out the window. When Jehu came through the gate, she said, “Is everything all right, Zimri, murderer of his master?” He looked up at the window and said, “Who is on my side? Who?” Two or three eunuchs looked down at him. He said, “Throw her down!” So they threw her down, and when she hit the ground, her blood splattered against the wall and the horses, and Jehu drove his chariot over her. He went inside and had a meal. Then he said, “Dispose of this accursed woman’s corpse. Bury her, for after all, she was a king’s daughter.” But when they went to bury her, they found nothing left but the skull, feet, and palms of the hands. So they went back and told him. Then he said, “It is the fulfillment of the Lord’s message that he had spoken through his servant, Elijah the Tishbite, ‘In the plot of land at Jezreel, dogs will devour Jezebel’s flesh. Jezebel’s corpse will be like manure on the surface of the ground in the plot of land at Jezreel. People will not be able to even recognize her.’”

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.


A reading from Matthew 6:7-15


When you pray, do not babble repetitiously like the Gentiles because they think that by their many words they will be heard. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. So pray this way:
“Our Father in heaven, may your name be honored,


may your kingdom come,
may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.


Give us today our daily bread,


and forgive us our debts, as we ourselves have forgiven our debtors.


And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

“For if you forgive others their sins, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, your Father will not forgive you your sins.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Show us your mer-cy, O Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your minis-ters with righteous-ness;
Let your people sing with joy.

Give peace, O Lord, in all the world;
For only in you can we live in safe-ty.
Lord, keep this na-tion under your care;
And guide us in/the way of justice and truth.

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.
