Evening Prayer Trinity 6

O God, make speed to save us.

 O Lord, make haste to help us.

In your resurrection, O Christ,

 let heaven and earth rejoice.

Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, you that by night stand in the house of the Lord. Lift up your hands towards the sanctuary and bless the Lord. The Lord who made heaven and earth give you blessing out of Zion.

Hymn

That this evening may be holy, good and peaceful, let us pray with one heart and mind.

Silence is kept.

As our evening prayer rises before you, O God, so may your mercy come down upon us to cleanse our hearts and set us free to sing your praise now and for ever. Amen.

From Psalm 66

Be joyful in God, all the earth; sing the glory of his name; sing the glory of his praise.

 

Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds! Because of your great strength your enemies shall bow before you.

 

‘All the earth shall worship you, sing to you, sing praise to your name.’

 

Come now and behold the works of God,  how wonderful he is in his dealings with humankind.

 

He turned the sea into dry land; the river they passed through on foot;
there we rejoiced in him.

 

In his might he rules for ever; his eyes keep watch over the nations;
let no rebel rise up against him.

 

Bless our God, O you peoples; make the voice of his praise to be heard,

 

Who holds our souls in life and suffers not our feet to slip.

 

For you, O God, have proved us; you have tried us as silver is tried.

 

You brought us into the snare; you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.

 

You let enemies ride over our heads;we went through fire and water;
but you brought us out into a place of liberty.

 

I will come into your house with burnt offerings and will pay you my vows, which my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.

 

I will offer you fat burnt sacrifices with the smoke of rams; I will sacrifice oxen and goats.

 

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

Canticle

Let us rejoice and exult and give glory and homage to our God. Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, whose judgements are true and just.

Praise our God, all you his servants, all who fear him, both small and great.

The Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns: let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory.

For the marriage of the Lamb has come and his bride has made herself ready. Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding banquet of the Lamb.

To the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honour and glory and might, for ever and ever.

 Amen. Let us rejoice and exult and give glory and homage to our God.

A reading from the Gospel of Luke.

 

A lawyer stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he said, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What do you read there?’ He answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.’ And he said to him, ‘You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.’ But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ Jesus replied, ‘A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan while travelling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, “Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.” Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbour to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?’ He said, ‘The one who showed him mercy.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do likewise.’

 

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Homily

The Lord is my strength and my song: he has become my salvation. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. He has become my salvation.

The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. The Lord is my strength and my song: he has become my salvation. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. He has become my salvation.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. The Lord is my strength and my song: he has become my salvation.

The Magnificat

The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. Alleluia.

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour; he has looked with favour on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed; the Almighty has done great things for me and holy is his name. He has mercy on those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has shown strength with his arm and has scattered the proud in their conceit, Casting down the mighty from their thrones and lifting up the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty. He has come to the aid of his servant Israel, to remember his promise of mercy, The promise made to our ancestors, to Abraham and his children for ever.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.

You have done great things, O God, and holy is your name.

Prayers

May God, who in Christ gives us a spring of water welling up to eternal life, perfect in you the image of his glory; And the blessing of God almighty, the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit, be with you and remain with you always.

Amen.

Rejoicing in God’s new creation, as our Saviour taught us, so we pray

 

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. And 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, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all evermore. Amen.

Let us bless the Lord.

Thanks be to God
