Morning Prayer 5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we light the Candle for Peace, we pray:

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.

 

Ps 50:   O God, you will not spurn a humbled, contrite heart.

Have mercy on me, God, in your kindness. In your compassion blot out my offence.
O wash me more and more from my guilt and cleanse me from my sin.
O God, you will not spurn a humbled, contrite heart.

My offences truly I know them. My sin is always before me.
Against you alone have I sinned; what is evil in your sight I have done.
O God, you will not spurn a humbled, contrite heart.

A pure heart create for me, O God, put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence, nor deprive me of your holy spirit.
O God, you will not spurn a humbled, contrite heart.

Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever. Amen.
O God, you will not spurn a humbled, contrite heart.

 

Let us pray

Lord, your name is ‘I will have compassion.’
As we acknowledge our sins and the sins of your people,
we trust in your forgiveness and love,
and our mouths declare your praise through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

The Collect or Glory to God

A reading

Before the Gospel we sing:

Alleluia, alleluia. This is what the Lord asks of you, this, only this:
to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God.
Alleluia, alleluia.

 

The Gospel

 

The Intercessions

All glory to God the Father of all,  to the Son and the Spirit give praise.

Oh, circle us now with love and with peace. Our strength and our guide, Lord, we pray.
We have nothing to fear when you are so near. You are King of the night and the day.
All glory to God the Father of all, to the Son and the Spirit give praise.

I ask you, my God, to bless and protect the fam’ly and friends that I love.
Enfold us in love, surround us with peace; be our strength and our light and our life.
All glory to God the Father of all, to the Son and the Spirit give praise.

 

Walker Sanctus

Memorial Acclamation:
When we eat this bread and drink this cup
we proclaim your death, O Lord, until you come again.

 

Old St Andrew Agnus Dei

Communion
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.Hosannah! Hosannah! Hosannah in excelsis.

After Communion a verse of the Benedictus (Vs 5)

For all our sins will freely be forgiven, the heart of God pours loving- kindness forth;
God comes to us like dawn comes to the sky bringing true light, where darkness once prevailed.
So all who live in fear of death’s dark shadow, God will now guide into the way of peace.

 

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