FOCUS MOMENT – EVENING PRAYER 5/7/17

MIDDAY / EVENING PRAYER

SILENCE AND CENTERING (2-5 MINUTES)

Be still and know that I am God. —Ps. 46:10

OPENING PRAYER & SCRIPTURE READING

Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of your faithful people is governed and sanctified: Receive our supplications and prayers which we offer before you for all members of your holy Church, that in their vocation and ministry they may truly and devoutly serve you; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” Luke 22:41-42, NIV

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy Name,

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

Forgive us our trespasses

As we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and

the glory forever and ever, Amen.

CONCLUDING PRAYER

Dear Father in heaven, we lift our eyes to you. You allow earthly events to follow their own course, and even your own Son had to suffer and die. But your plan is already prepared and you will act in our time according to your will. We pray, “Your will be done, your will!” In the midst of all the suffering let your love be revealed in many places, wherever it is possible for people to understand it. You have always protected us; protect us still. You have done much for us and we want to praise your name. We want to be people who always acknowledge you and praise you, for you will never let any be lost who hope in you. Be with us this night, help us, and send us the strength we need to serve you, also in our everyday life. Amen.

CONCLUDE WITH SILENCE (2-3 MINUTES)
