Act of Worship 14th June The First Sunday after Trinity

14 Jun 2020, 1 a.m.

Know that the Lord is God. It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Hymn: All my hope on God is founded ...

Romans 5:1-8

Let us draw near to ask our Father for forgiveness:

Most merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we confess that we have sinned in thought, word and deed. We have not loved you with our whole heart. We have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us to amend what we are, and direct what we shall be; that we may do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with you, our God. Amen.

May the God of love bring us back to himself, forgive us our sins, and assure us of his eternal love in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Lord is good; his steadfast love endures for ever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Prayer for the day: God of truth, help us to keep your law of love and to walk in ways of wisdom, that we may find true life in Jesus Christ your Son. Amen.

Matthew 9:35-10:23

Jesus said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.’ Does he mean us?

Please see the message from the vicar.

Bless the Lord my soul, and bless God’s holy name; bless the Lord my soul, who leads us into life.

Let us join in prayer asking for God’s empowering love to impact the Church, the world, our neighbours, families and friends, and all people who are sick or suffering. We pray for the departed, including Rose Farrow and Margaret Goody, and we ask that all who mourn will be comforted. Lord of the Church, hear our prayer, and make us one in heart and mind to serve you with joy forever. Amen.

Let us pray for the coming of God’s kingdom in the prayer that Jesus taught us:

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, the power, and the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Hymn: Have faith in God, my heart, trust and be unafraid ...

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all evermore.

Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord, in the name of Christ. Amen.
