Evening Prayer - Tuesday May 24 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

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 Timothy 2:1-6


First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself a ransom for all—this was attested at the right time.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - Second Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Seek/the Lord while he wills to/be found;
call/up-on him when he draws near.
Let/the wicked for-sake their ways
and the evil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to/the Lord,
and he will have com-pas-sion,
Let them/re-turn/to our God,
for he will richly par-don.

For my thoughts are/not your thoughts,
nor your ways my ways, says/the Lord.
For as/the heavens are higher than the earth,
so/are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For/as rain and snow fall from/the heav-ens
and re-turn not/a-gain,
but wat-er the whole earth,

Bring-ing forth life
and giving a-bun-dant growth
And seed for re-plan-ting
and bread/and fruit for eat-ing,

So/is my word that goes forth from my mouth;
it will not/re-turn/to me emp-ty;
But/it will ac-complish that which I have pur-posed,
and prosper in that for which I sent it.

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 13:18-23


"Hear then the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in the heart; this is what was sown on the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet such a person has no root, but endures only for a while, and when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, that person immediately falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the lure of wealth choke the word, and it yields nothing. But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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.
