The Evening Hour begins with a prayer for Migrants by Dr Laurence Whitley:
Let us pray
Father of compassion,
the word traffic suggests to us the bustle of anonymous vehicles hurrying on their way. But now we have learned a new use of it: the shuffling of desperate and fearful people on to the terrors of the sea. Human Traffic – the term is cold – uncaring.
They have no names, no identity, no history – but will this trafficking mean no future too?
Forgive us, Lord, we know not what to do. We stand idle spectators while the tide of desperation rolls on. So we pray now, show us the way. Reveal to us how to understand, and then how to care and then give us the will and the means to do it.
To the end.
In Jesus’ name we ask it.
Evening Prayer which follows at 8.02 and 9.02 begins with the St Mungo
Singers singing ‘Grace to you and peace.’
The psalm is Psalm 138: I thank you for the wonder of my being.’
The ’Amazing Grace’ Magnificat leads into the Intercessions
which are punctuated with the sung response ‘Glory be to God
who has shown us the light.’
The Magazine which follows includes
Noel Donnelly’s short reflections illustrating psalms 1, 4 and 8.
2) Fr Noel Barry died last week and, at this time when there is so
much sadness and violence being reported daily, we listen to his
powerful reflection on the anniversary of the First World War and
his prayer for peace.
