After Pentecost| Friday – 26 Aug 2022

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


Let your continual mercy, O Lord,
cleanse and defend your Church; and,
because it cannot continue in safety without your help,
protect and govern it always by your goodness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

God has given each of you a gift
from his great variety of spiritual gifts.
Use them well to serve one another.
(1 Peter 4:10)


Psalms Reading: Psalm 81 – Poor Bishop Hooper

sing aloud to god our strength
shout for joy to the god of jacob
raise a song sound the tambourine
with the lyre harp

blow the horn on the day of feasts
to the moon for it is a statute
this is israel’s decree
from the land of egypt

i hear a language that i had not known

i delivered your shoulder from the burden you were carrying
i answered your distress from the secret place of thundering
listen listen oh my people to my warning
listen listen oh my people to this warning

there will be no strange foreign gods among you
for i am the lord god

i would feed you with the finest of wheat
with honey from the rock so satisfying


OT Reading: Jeremiah 12:1-13 (NLT)
