Experiences influence us much more profoundly than talks and lectures. Even though we may not be able to analyse them, we know they affect us (for good or for ill), and continue to do so for years afterwards.

EVENING PRAYER FOR THE WEEK


21 - 27 February 2017





Leader: In the Name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Amen


The Leader says:We have come together as the family of God

In our Father’s presence to offer him praise and thanksgiving

to hear and receive his holy word to bring before him the needs of the world

to ask his forgiveness of our sins and to seek his grace

that through his son Jesus Christ

we may give ourselves to his service.


Leader: The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it!

Let us worship and praise him (Alleluia during

Eastertide)

1 Hail, gladdening Light, of his pure glory poured,
who is immortal Father, heavenly blest;
Holiest of Holies, Jesus Christ our Lord!

2 Now are we come to the sun's hour of rest;
the lights of evening round us shine,
we hymn the Father, Son and Holy Spirit divine.


3 Worthiest art thou at all times to be sung,
with undefilèd tongue, Son of our God, Giver of life, alone!

Therefore in all the world thy glories, Lord, they own.


Leader: Let us call to mind and confess our sins. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us,

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


(Silence may be kept, then is said)


Almighty God our heavenly Father

in penitence we confess

that we have sinned against you

through our own fault

in every generation.


5 He has shown the strength of his arm:

he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

and has lifted up the lowly.


7 He has filled the hungry with good things:
