Morning Prayer 11 with Mass and Psalm 79

Seek the Lord, bless the Lord, taste and see the Lord is good.
Seek the Lord, bless the Lord, taste and see the Lord is good.

 

 

 

As we light our candle we pray for peace:
Lord,
we pray for peace in the Holy Land,
for Syria and all the other troubled countries
where people’s lives are spoiled or taken from them
by violence or war.
We pray for refugees,
and for generous hearts for those who need to show mercy.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

 

 Psalm 79: God of hosts bring us back, lead us and we shall be saved.

O shepherd of Israel, hear us, shine forth from your cherubim throne.
O Lord, rouse up your might, come to our aid.
God of hosts bring us back, lead us and we shall be saved.

 

God of hosts, turn again, we implore you; look down from heaven and see,
O visit this vine and protect what your right hand has sown.
God of hosts bring us back, lead us and we shall be saved.

 

Lay your hand on the man you have chosen, the man you have given your strength,
O Lord, fill us with life, we call on your name.
God of hosts bring us back,  lead us and we shall be saved.

Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever.
Amen.
God of hosts bring us back,  lead us and we shall be saved.

Let us pray

Shepherd of Israel,
you are the Good Shepherd of your people.
Be with us this day,
help us to be aware of your loving presence among us,
and let us see your presence in each other.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

After communion: a verse of the Benedictus (Verse 1)

Blest be the Lord the God of Israel, who came to us and brought us back from sin.
God raised for us a Saviour who is mighty,  his Saviour-Son from David’s house and line.
God promised this through holy men and women who spoke for him down through the mists of time.

 

May the Lord bless us and keep us from all harm;
and may he lead us to eternal life.
Amen
