Evening Prayer - Monday March 28 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 89:19-52


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Then you spoke through/a vi-sion
to your faithful follow-ers and said:
I have placed/a young he-ro over a warri-or;
I have raised up/a young man from/the peo-ple.

I have dis-covered Da-vid, my serv-ant.
With my holy oil I have a-nointed him as king.
My hand will sup-port him,
and my arm will strengthen him.

No ene-my will be able to ex-act tribute from him;
a vio-lent op-pressor will not be able to hu-mili-ate him.
I will crush his ene-mies be-fore him;
I will strike down those who hate him.

He will ex-peri-ence my faithful-ness and loyal love,
and by my name he will win vic-to-ry.
I will place his hand over the sea,
his right hand over the riv-ers.

He will call out to me,
You are my father, my God,
and the pro-tec-tor who de-livers me.
I will ap-point him to be my first-born son,

the most ex-alted of/the earth's kings.
I will always ex-tend my loyal love to him,
and my cove-nant with him is se-cure.
I will give him an e-ternal dy-nas-ty,

and make his throne as en-during as the skies a-bove.
If his sons re-ject my law and diso-bey my regu-la-tions,
if they break my rules
and do not keep my com-mand-ments,

I will punish their re-bel-lion
by beating them with a club,
their sin by in-flicting them with bruis-es.
But I will not re-move my loyal love from him.

I will not be un-faithful to my prom-ise.
I will not break my cove-nant
or go back on what I prom-ised.
Once and/for all I have vowed by my own holi-ness,

I will never de-ceive Da-vid.
His dy-nasty will last for-ev-er.
His throne will en-dure be-fore me, like the sun,
it will re-main stable, like the moon,

his throne will en-dure like the sky.
But you have spurned and re-jected him;
you are angry with your cho-sen king.
You have re-pudi-at-ed your cove-nant with your serv-ant;

You have thrown his crown to/the ground.
You have broken down all his walls;
you have made his strong-holds a heap of ru-ins.
All who pass by have robbed him;

he has be-come an object of dis-dain to his neigh-bors.
You have al-lowed his adver-saries to be vic-to-ri-ous,
and all his ene-mies to re-joice.
You turn back his sword from/the adver-sar-y,

and have not sus-tained him in bat-tle.
You have brought to/an end his splen-dor,
and have knocked his throne to/the ground.
You have cut short his youth,

You have covered him with shame.
How long, O Lord, will this last?
Will you re-main hidden for-ev-er?
Will your anger con-tinue to burn like fire?

Take note of my brief life span!
Why do you make all people so mor-tal?
No man can live on with-out ex-peri--encing death,
or de-liver his life from/the power of She-ol.

Where are your earli-er faithful deeds, O Lord,
the ones per-formed in/ac-cordance with your re-lia-ble oath to Da-vid?
Take note, O Lord, of/the way your servants are taunt-ed,
and of how I must bear so many in-sults from peo-ple!

Your ene-mies, O Lord, hurl in-sults;
they in-sult your chosen king as they dog his foot-steps.
The Lord de-serves praise for-ever-more!
We a-gree! We a-gree! 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 1 Corinthians 10:14-11:2


Therefore, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols.

I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. Consider the people of Israel; are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar? What do I imply then? That food sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Or are we provoking the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?

"All things are lawful," but not all things are beneficial. "All things are lawful," but not all things build up. Do not seek your own advantage, but that of the other. Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience, for "the earth and its fullness are the Lord's." If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you are disposed to go, eat whatever is set before you without raising any question on the ground of conscience. But if someone says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then do not eat it, out of consideration for the one who informed you, and for the sake of conscience— I mean the other's conscience, not your own. For why should my liberty be subject to the judgment of someone else's conscience? If I partake with thankfulness, why should I be denounced because of that for which I give thanks? So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, so that they may be saved.

Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions just as I handed them on to you.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Song of Penitence


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord and Ruler of/the hosts of heav-en,
God of Abra-ham, I-saac, and Ja-cob,
and of all their righteous off-spring:
You made the heavens and the earth,

with all their vast ar-ray.
All things quake with fear at your pres-ence;
they trem-ble be-cause of your power.
But your merci-ful promise is be-yond all meas-ure;

it sur-passes all that our minds can fath-om.
O Lord, you are full of com-pas-sion,
long-suffer-ing, and a-bounding in mer-cy.
You hold _ back your hand;

You do not punish as we de-serve.
In your great good-ness, Lord,
you have promised for-give-ness to sin-ners,
that they may re-pent of their sin and be saved.

And now, O Lord, I bend the knee of my heart,
and make my ap-peal, sure of your gracious good-ness.
I have sinned, O Lord, I have sinned,
and I know my wicked-ness only too well.

There-fore I make this prayer to you:
For-give me, Lord, for-give me.
Do not let me perish in my sin,
nor con-demn me to/the depths of/the earth.

For you, O Lord, are the God of those who re-pent,
and in me you will show forth your good-ness.
Un-worthy as I am, you will save me,
in ac-cordance with your great mer-cy,

and I will praise you without ceas-ing
all the days of my life.
For all the powers of heaven sing your praise,
and yours is the glory to ages of age. A-men.


A reading from Mark 7:24-37


From there he set out and went away to the region of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know he was there. Yet he could not escape notice, but a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him, and she came and bowed down at his feet. Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. He said to her, "Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the children's food and throw it to the dogs." But she answered him, "Sir, even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs." Then he said to her, "For saying that, you may go—the demon has left your daughter." So she went home, found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.

Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went by way of Sidon towards the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. They brought to him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand on him. He took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue. Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened." And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. They were astounded beyond measure, saying, "He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Monday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Splendor and honor and king-ly power
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you cre-ated every-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-ated and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fami-ly, lan-guage, people, and na-tion,
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on/the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for-ever and for-ever-more.

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.

Collect of the Day


Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world: Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for 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.
