Evening Prayer - Tuesday March 22 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






Tuesday - 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.
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 78:40-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



How often they re-belled a-gainst him in/the wilder-ness,
and in-sulted him in/the waste-land!
They a-gain chal-lenged God,
and of-fended the Holy One of Isra-el.

They did not re-member what he had done,
how he de-livered them from/the ene-my,
when he per-formed his awesome deeds in E-gypt,
and his acts of judgment in/the re-gion of Zo-an.

He turned their rivers into blood,
and they could not drink from their streams.
He sent swarms of biting in-sects a-gainst them,
as well as frogs that over-ran their land.

He gave their crops to/the grass-hop-pers,
the fruit of their labor to/the lo-custs.
He de-stroyed their vines with hail,
and their syca-more fig trees with driv-ing rain.

He rained hail down on their cat-tle,
and hurled lightning bolts down on their live-stock.
His raging anger lashed out a-gainst them,
He sent fury, rage, and trou-ble

as messen-gers who bring dis-as-ter.
He sent his anger in full force;
he did not spare them from death;
he handed their lives over to de-struc-tion.

He struck down all/the first-born in E-gypt,
the first fruits of their repro-duc-tive power in/the tents of Ham.
Yet he brought out his people like sheep;
he led them through the wilder-ness like a flock.

He guided them safe-ly a-long,
and they were not a-fraid;
but the sea covered their ene-mies.
He brought them to/the bor-der of his holy land,

to this mountain-ous land
which his right hand ac-quired.
He drove the nations out from be-fore them;
he as-signed them their tribal al-lot-ments

and al-lowed the tribes of Isra-el to settle down.
Yet they challenged and de-fied God Most High,
and did not o-bey his com-mands.
They were un-faithful to God

and acted as treacher-ous-ly as their an-ces-tors;
they were as un-re-lia-ble as/a bro-ken bow.
They made him angry with/their pa-gan shrines,
and made him jeal-ous with/their i-dols.

God heard and was an-gry;
he com-pletly re-jected Isra-el.
He a-bandoned the sanctu-ary at Shi-loh,
the tent where he lived a-mong men.

He al-lowed the symbol of his presence to/be cap-tured;
he gave the symbol of his splendor to/the ene-my.
He de-livered his people over to/the sword,
and was angry with his chosen na-tion.

Fire con-sumed their young men,
and their virgins re-mained un-mar-ried.
Their priests fell by/the sword,
but their widows did not weep.

But then the Lord a-woke from his sleep;
he was like a warri-or in/a drunken rage.
He drove his ene-mies back;
he made them a perma-nent target for in-sults.

He re-jected the tent of Jo-seph;
he did/not choose the tribe of Eph-ra-im.
He chose the tribe of Ju-dah,
and Mount Zi-on, which he loves.

He made his sanctu-ary
as en-during as the heavens a-bove;
as se-cure as the earth,
which he es-tablished perma-nent-ly.

He chose Da-vid, his serv-ant,
and took him from/the sheep fold.
He took him a-way from follow-ing the sheep,
and made him the shep-herd

of Ja-cob, his peo-ple,
and of Isra-el, his chosen na-tion.
Da-vid cared for them
with pure motives; he led them with skill.

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 7:32-40


I want you to be free from anxieties. The unmarried man is anxious about the affairs of the Lord, how to please the Lord; but the married man is anxious about the affairs of the world, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided. And the unmarried woman and the virgin are anxious about the affairs of the Lord, so that they may be holy in body and spirit; but the married woman is anxious about the affairs of the world, how to please her husband. I say this for your own benefit, not to put any restraint upon you, but to promote good order and unhindered devotion to the Lord.

If anyone thinks that he is not behaving properly toward his fiancee, if his passions are strong, and so it has to be, let him marry as he wishes; it is no sin. Let them marry. But if someone stands firm in his resolve, being under no necessity but having his own desire under control, and has determined in his own mind to keep her as his fiancee, he will do well. So then, he who marries his fiancee does well; and he who refrains from marriage will do better.

A wife is bound as long as her husband lives. But if the husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, only in the Lord. But in my judgment she is more blessed if she remains as she is. And I think that I too have the Spirit of God.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - 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-ternal Fath-er:
All cre-ation wor-ships you.

To you all angels, all the powers of heav-en,
Cheru-bim and Sera-phim, sing in endless praise:
Holy, ho-ly, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full/of your glo-ry.

The glori-ous compan-y of/a-postles praises you.
The noble fellow-ship of prophets praises you.
The white-robed army of martyrs praises you.
Through-out/the world the holy Church ac-claims you;

Father, of majes-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and on-ly Son,
worthy of all wor-ship,
and the Holy Spirit, advo-cate and guide.

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

You over-came the sting of death
and opened 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 all your saints
to glory ever-lasting. 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 6:1-13


He left that place and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astounded. They said, "Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him. Then Jesus said to them, "Prophets are not without honor, except in their hometown, and among their own kin, and in their own house." And he could do no deed of power there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. And he was amazed at their unbelief.

Then he went about among the villages teaching. He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them." So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Surely, 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.

Therefore you shall draw water with re-joic-ing

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;

Sing the praises of/the Lord,

And this/is known in all the world.
Cry/a-loud, in-habit-ants of Zion, ring out your joy,
for/the great one in/the midst of you
is the Holy 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.

The Lord be with you.
And also with you.
Let us pray.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.
