Welcome in the name of Christ. God's grace, mercy and peace be with you and also with you. Glory to God, Source of all being, Eternal Word and Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
A reading from Mark chapter 8, page … After the reading: This is the word of the Lord Thanks be to God
The peace of the Lord be always with you and also with you
As our Saviour taught us, so we pray Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.
Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee. Take my moments and my days; let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of thy love. Take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.
Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King. Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold. Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.
Take my will, and make it thine; it shall be no longer mine. Take my heart, it is thine own; it shall be thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour at thy feet its treasure store. Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee. Frances Havergal (1836-1879)
Lighten our darkness, Lord, we pray, and in your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night, for the love of your only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Jesus, lord of time, hold us in your eternity. Jesus, image of God, travel with us the life of faith. Jesus, friend of sinners, heal the brokenness of our world. Jesus, lord of tomorrow, draw us into your future. Amen.
