Tuesday Worship

Please enter in silence and meditation

Welcome

The kingdom of God:

The kingdom of God is justice and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Come, Lord, and open in us the gates of your kingdom.

Still:

Find rest my soul in Christ alone.
Know his power in quietness and trust.

Gospel reading: Philippians 2: 5-11
Jesus, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death.

Wait for the Lord:

Wait for the Lord, whose day is near. Wait for the Lord. Keep watch, take heart.

Silent Prayer

Stay with me:

Stay with me, remain here with me. Watch and pray. Watch and pray.

Intercessory Prayer

"Holy Spirit come to us"
Eternal God, you have freed us by giving us your only Son. You open for us the way of freedom.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

God, you want us to become new creatures in Christ. Keep us in the communion of your Son. Keep us alert as we wait for the day of his coming.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

Christ, your spirit of life dwells within every human being. May the Spirit enable us to tear down walls of mistrust and of fear, Lord, we pray.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

Give us your peace, so that we can communicate it to one another in mutual love, and serve the human family.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

Christ, you have taken our weaknesses upon yourself and taken charge of our illnesses. Support those who are going through trials, Lord, we pray.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

For those who work with the oppressed, with foreigners and with the lonely, Lord, we pray.
"Holy Spirit come to us"

We entrust to you our families and friends, all who have asked for our prayers and who pray for us, whom we name before you now, (please speak out the names at this time) Lord, we pray…
"Holy Spirit come to us"

God is Forgiveness:

God is forgiveness. Dare to forgive and God will be with you.
God is forgiveness. Love and do not fear.

Closing Prayer:

Jesus our peace, if our lips keep silence, our heart listens to you and also speaks to you. And you say to each one of us: surrender yourself in all simplicity to the life of the Holy Spirit; for this, the little bit of faith you have is enough. (A prayer from Taizé)

Within our darkest night:

Within our darkest night, you kindle the fire never dies away, never dies away.

You are invited to depart in silence or remain to pray.
