Wednesday Morning Prayer, 29 Jul 2020

+ In the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Opening:*

Most powerful Holy Spirit, come down upon us and subdue us.
From heaven, where the ordinary is made glorious, and glory seems but ordinary,
Bathe us with the brilliance of Your light like dew.

Believer, hold Him high that all may see the light of Jesus in a son of man.  “Aidan”

Scripture Reading (CEV)

Psalm 134:1

Praising the Lord at Night

Everyone who serves the Lord,
come and offer praises.
Everyone who has gathered
in his temple tonight.

(Song of Ascents)[Psalm 134] – Praise to Our God 5 Concert – Shir Hamaalot

Isaiah 49:8-9

The Lord Will Lead His People Home

This is what the Lord says:
I will answer your prayers
because I have set a time
when I will help
by coming to save you.

I have chosen you
to take my promise of hope
to other nations.
You will rebuild the country
from its ruins,
then people will come
and settle there.

You will set prisoners free
from dark dungeons
to see the light of day.
On their way home,
they will find plenty to eat,
even on barren hills.

Isaiah 49 – Carey Landry

John 2:5

Mary then said to the servants, “Do whatever Jesus tells you to do.”

Reflection**

How wonderful it is to walk with God
along the road that holy men have trod.
How wonderful it is to hear Him say:
Fear not, have faith
’tis I who lead the way.
(Theodore H. Kitching)

Closing

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

+ In the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
