EASTER 2nd, 4th and 6th Weeks

TUESDAY Morning Prayer

Greeting and Doxology
Acts 4: 1-12
This Jesus is “the stone that was rejected by you, the builders; it has become the cornerstone.” There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among mortals by which we must be saved.

Jesus of Nazareth was a prophet mighty in deed and word, before God and all the people, alleluia!

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s
deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.


O God of the prophets, you sent your Son Jesus as the last and greatest of the prophets. In his name we pray for all those who seek salvation:

We make this prayer in union with Jesus in whose name we are all blessed and saved. Amen. BLESSING

EASTER 2nd, 4th and 6th Weeks TUESDAY

Evening Prayer

Greeting and Doxology

Ephesians 2: 4-5a, 6-8
God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ and raised us up and with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus., so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.
Just as I have loved you, you should also love one another. Alleluia!
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.

Christ Jesus, through your life, death ad resurrection, we have received the riches of God’s mercy. Help us share that mercy with all who are in need.

For victims of domestic and civil violence, we pray:
~In your mercy heal their wounds.

For those suffering from illness or disability, we pray:
~In your mercy bring them comfort and strength.

For persons who are homeless or fleeing from poverty or repression, we pray:
~In your mercy show them the way to safe shelter.

For prisoners and those who are awaiting trial, we pray:
~In your mercy give them understanding and compassions.

For those suffering from addiction to chemical substances, we pray:
~In your mercy help them to overcome their dependency.

Christ Jesus, your love for us invites us to love you; your great kindness to us teaches us to be kind to others; your mercy to us inspires us in our vocation of mercy. During this Easter season may we come to know and cherish more deeply the immeasurable riches of your gift to us. This we ask in a spirit of thanksgiving. Amen.
