Greeting and Doxology

PSALM 119:33-50
Guide me along your path, a way of delight.

God, teach
me your ways
and I will fol
low them closely.
Help me under
stand your will,
that I may che
rish your law.

Guide me a
long your path,
a way
of delight.
Open my heart
to your laws
not to riches.

Turn my eyes from the
lure of evil,
let me
live your truth.
your promise
to one
who reveres you.

Spare me the
shame I fear.
How good
your commands!
See, I want
what is right,
let your justice
give me life.

Touch me with your
love, O lord,
save me
as you promised.
I defy
those who taunt me,
for I
trust your word.

Let me speak
the whole truth,
for I a
wait your justice.
keep your word,
and always.

I go
about openly
ing your law.
I would speak your
word to kings,
and not
be ashamed.

For I
love your ways
and delight in fol
lowing them.
I revere
your commands
and at
tend to them.

Remember what you
promised me,
wait in hope.
In sorrow, this
is my comfort:
your life-
giving word.

READING Isaiah 43:9-12
Let all the nations gather together, and let the peoples assemble.
Who among them declared this, and foretold to us the former things?
Let them bring their witnesses to justify them, and let them hear and say, “It is true.”
You are my witnesses, and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am God.
Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me.
I, I am the Lord, and besides me there is no savior.
I declared and saved and proclaimed, when there was no strange god among you; and you are my witnesses.

Truly your word is at work in us. We sing with joy.

I acclaim the greatness of the Lord,
I delight in God my savior,
who regarded my humble state.
Truly from this day on All ages will call me blest.

For God, wonderful in power,
has used that strength for me.
Holy the name of the Lord!
Whose mercy embraces the faithful,
one generation to the next.

The mighty arm of God
scatters the proud in their conceit,
Pulls tyrants from their thrones,
and raises up the humble.
The Lord fills the starving
And lets the rich go hungry.

God rescues lowly Israel,
recalling the promise of mercy,
the promise made to our ancestors,
to Abraham’s heirs for ever.

Jesus, you taught us to pray; listen to our prayers this evening:
~ Jesus, we place our trust in you.

For elected officials, that they use their power and authority for the common good, we pray:
For those who are sick, that they experience your healing presence and return to full health, we pray:
For those who mourn the loss of loved ones, that they find comfort and support in their time
of grief, we pray:
For our world community called to responsibility for the planet Earth, that we collaborate in caring stewardship, we pray:
For those discerning a call to religious life and priesthood, that they be open to the inspiration of the Spirit, we pray:
For all members of the Institute, that they will continue to be blessed with your presence in their lives, we pray:



You have called us, O God, to unite us to yourself in the person of your Son, Jesus. Through our reflections on his life, may we come to know his spirit and to reflect it in our words and actions. Thus will all people know of your constant love for us. We make this prayer in a spirit of gratitude and praise. Amen.

May God’s blessing be upon us. Amen
May God’s light lead us in the way of Righteousness. Amen.
May our lives be patterned on Christ Jesus. Amen.
