Evening Prayer - Monday March 14 2022




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



Monday - Evensong Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from/the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Worship the Lord in/the beauty 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 evening sacri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives/me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set/the Lord always 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 64


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Listen to me, O God, as I offer my la-ment!
Pro-tect my life from/the ene-my's terri-fy-ing at-tack.
Hide me from/the plots of evil men,
from the crowd of evil-do-ers.

They sharpen their tongues like a sword;
they aim their arrow, a slander-ous charge,
in order to shoot down the inno-cent in se-cluded plac-es.
They shoot at him sudden-ly and are una-fraid of re-tali-a-tion.

They en-courage one an-other to carry out their evil deeds.
They plan how to hide snares, and boast,
Who will see them?
They de-vise un-just schemes;

They dis-guise a well con-ceived plot.
Man's inner thoughts can't be dis-co-vered.
But God will shoot at them;
sudden-ly they will be wounded by an ar-row.

Their slander will bring/a-bout their de-mise.
All who see them will shud-der,
and all people will fear.
They will pro-claim what God has done,

And re-flect on his deeds.
The god-ly will re-joice in/the Lord
and take shelter in him.
All the moral-ly up-right will boast.

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.


Psalm 65


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Praise a-waits you, O God, in Zi-on.
Vows made to you are ful-filled.
You hear our prayers;
all _ people ap-proach you.

Our record of sins over-whelms me,
but you for-give our acts of re-bel-lion.
How blessed is the one whom you choose,
and al-low to live in your pal-ace court.

May we be sat-is-fied
with the good things of your house, your holy pal-ace.
You an-swer our prayers
by per-forming awe-some acts of de-liver-ance,

O God, our sav-ior.
All the ends of/the earth trust in you,
As well as those living a-cross the wide sea.
You cre-ated the mountains by your power,

And demon-strated your strength.
You calm the raging seas and their roaring waves,
As well as the com-motion made by/the na-tions.
Even those in/the most re-mote are-as are awe-struck by your acts;

You cause those liv-ing in/the east and west to praise you.
You visit the earth and give it rain;
You make it rich and fer-tile.
God's streams are full of wat-er;

You pro-vide grain for them,
for you have pre-pared the earth in this way.
You satu-rate its furrows, and soak its plowed ground.
With rain showers you soften its soil,

You make its crops grow.
You crown the year with your good bles-sing,
and you leave a-bundance in your wake.
The pastures in/the wilder-ness glisten with moist-ure,

And the hills are clothed with joy.
The meadows are clothed with sheep,
and the valleys are covered with grain.
They shout joyful-ly, yes, they sing.

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 1 Corinthians 4:8-21


Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! Quite apart from us you have become kings! Indeed, I wish that you had become kings, so that we might be kings with you! For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as last of all, as though sentenced to death, because we have become a spectacle to the world, to angels and to mortals. We are fools for the sake of Christ, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute. To the present hour we are hungry and thirsty, we are poorly clothed and beaten and homeless, and we grow weary from the work of our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; when slandered, we speak kindly. We have become like the rubbish of the world, the dregs of all things, to this very day.

I am not writing this to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. For though you might have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers. Indeed, in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel. I appeal to you, then, be imitators of me.

For this reason I sent you Timothy, who is my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ Jesus, as I teach them everywhere in every church. But some of you, thinking that I am not coming to you, have become arrogant. But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power. For the kingdom of God depends not on talk but on power. What would you prefer? Am I to come to you with a stick, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Monday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go/in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-lighten the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go/in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 3:7-19


Jesus departed with his disciples to the sea, and a great multitude from Galilee followed him; hearing all that he was doing, they came to him in great numbers from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, beyond the Jordan, and the region around Tyre and Sidon. He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, so that they would not crush him; for he had cured many, so that all who had diseases pressed upon him to touch him. Whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and shouted, "You are the Son of God!" But he sternly ordered them not to make him known.

He went up the mountain and called to him those whom he wanted, and they came to him. And he appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles, to be with him, and to be sent out to proclaim the message, and to have authority to cast out demons. So he appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); James son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder); and Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

Then he went home;

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Collect of the Day


O God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious to all who have gone astray from your ways, and bring them again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and hold fast the unchangeable truth of your Word, Jesus Christ your Son; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Peace

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.

We pray for peace and especially for the people of Ukraine, saying together,

Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

Prayer for Mission

O God and Father of all, whom the whole heavens adore: Let the whole earth also worship you, all nations obey you, all tongues confess and bless you, and men and women everywhere love you and serve you in peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
