Words for Evening prayer 27/11/2023
Night Prayer Mon 19th Feb 24
As we are at the beginning of the season of Lent, a time of quiet reflection and a time to examine ourselves spiritually, we listen to Psalm 13 set for tonight and part of the Gospel reading from John chapter 5 - how Jesus heals a man on the Sabbath and the opposition of the religious leaders grows against Jesus, the One who calls God His Father. As we dedicate ourselves again this Lent to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, may we journey through this time remembering all He is to us and all we are to Him.

Prayer, Bible Reading and Reflection at the end of the day. Last night at St Thomas' we had a confirmation service with Bishop Jill, Bishop of Lancaster. Some of the words from that service are used in this time of worship here. Isaiah 43 v 1 - 7 (The Lord says) "Since you are precious and honoured in my sight, and because I love you" - we pause to remember that God loves us and calls us precious and honoured in His sight. We pray for the world, our country, our community our family and friends and all those who are ill at this time, knowing each and every one, like ourselves is precious and honoured in God's sight - may the whole world turn and acknowledge this truth and live our lives upholding that truth.
Night Prayer Mon 5th Feb 2024
Isaiah 40 v21 to 26 Time to rest in God at the end of day and find comfort in HIs word. The subtitle in my Bible to Isaiah 40 is 'Comfort for God's people'. Despite what we may see and hear of what is going on in the world, our God is still greater; He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth. "'To whom will you compare me? or who is my equal?; says the Holy One." The prophet Isaiah speaks of humankind as grasshoppers for God is so vast compared to us and yet He cares for each one of us. "Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing." Behold our God, seated on His throne, come let us adore Him.
Night Prayer Wed 31 January 2024
Prayers, reflection at the end of the day and hearing God's word from Psalm 134 and Matthew 17 v 1 - 8 The transfiguration of Jesus. The disciples are terrified and Jesus came and touched them and said "Don't be afraid." The Lord who loves us and gave Himself for us on the cross calls us to fear not but to shine as lights in the world. Daniel 12 v 3 "those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever."
Night Prayer 22nd January 2024
Prayer and reflection at the end of the day. Psalm 138 'Your loving kindness, O Lord, endures for ever. Hosea 2 v 16 to the end A special prayer (Collect) King of kings and Lord of lords, making the true light to shine: lighten our darkness now and evermore that with our lips and in our lives we may praise You; for You are our God, now and for ever. Amen. We pray for the unity of the Church the peace of the world the healing of the sick the revelation of Christ to those from whom His glory is hidden all those who travel - for work, for mission, to help others in distress and minister healing and safety
