Evening Prayer Trinity 3

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 49

Hear this, all you peoples;  listen, all you that dwell in the world, You of low or high degree,  both rich and poor together.

My mouth shall speak of wisdom and my heart shall meditate on understanding.

I will incline my ear to a parable;   I will unfold my riddle with the lyre.

Why should I fear in evil days, when the malice of my foes surrounds me,

Such as trust in their goods and glory in the abundance of their riches?

For no one can indeed ransom another  or pay to God the price of deliverance.

To ransom a soul is too costly; there is no price one could pay for it,

So that they might live for ever, and never see the grave.

For we see that the wise die also;  with the foolish and ignorant they perish

and leave their riches to others.

Be not afraid if some grow rich and the glory of their house increases,

For they will carry nothing away when they die, nor will their glory follow after them.

Though they count themselves happy while they live and praise you for your success,

They shall enter the company of their ancestors who will nevermore see the light.

Those who have honour, but lack understanding,

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 Letter of Paul to the Romans.

 

So that you may not claim to be wiser than you are, brothers and sisters, I want you to understand this mystery: a hardening has come upon part of Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved; as it is written,

‘Out of Zion will come the Deliverer;  he will banish ungodliness from Jacob.’

‘And this is my covenant with them,  when I take away their sins.’

As regards the gospel they are enemies of God for your sake; but as regards election they are beloved, for the sake of their ancestors; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Just as you were once disobedient to God but have now received mercy because of their disobedience, so they have now been disobedient in order that, by the mercy shown to you, they too may now receive mercy. For God has imprisoned all in disobedience so that he may be merciful to all. O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgements and how inscrutable his ways!

‘For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counsellor?’ ‘Or who has given a gift to him, to receive a gift in return?’

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory for ever. Amen.

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

Almighty God, you have broken the tyranny of sin and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts whereby we call you Father: give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service, that we and all creation may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Amen

 

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
