* Congregation Stands

We gather and compose our hearts and minds for worship.  Evening prayer is worship that is structured with alternating times of both music and silence.  As the world grows dark around us, we rejoice that Christ, the joyous, inextinguishable Light of God, is always with us.

Announcements

* Prayer of the Day

Humble Thyself / Psalm 141

   Refrain

Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord (echo)
Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord (echo)
And He will lift you up higher and higher
And He will lift you up

Let my prayer rise up as incense before you
The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice
O Lord, I call to you, come to me quickly
Give ear to my voice when I cry to you. Refrain

Set Thou a watch upon my mouth, O Lord,
And guard well the door of my lips.
Set not my thoughts on any evil thing
And keep me from the company of evildoers. Refrain

But my eyes are turned to You, O Lord.
In you I take refuge; strip me not of my life. Refrain

O Lord, hear my prayer, O Lord, hear my prayer:
When I call answer me.
O Lord, hear my prayer, O Lord, hear my prayer,
Come and listen to me.

* Prayer of Humble Access (Confession)

We do not presume to come to your table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but only in your abundant and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under your table; but say the word, and we shall be healed. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
 as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen
