Daily Prayer for week of

19th Sunday after Trinity

O Lord, open our lips

and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

We pray together in the name of Christ

to offer our praise and our thanksgiving,

we receive God’s holy word,

and pray for the needs of all.

We seek forgiveness for our wrongdoing,

that by the power of the Holy Spirit

we may offer ourselves to the service of God.

We confess to you our lack of trust in your word:

fill us with your Spirit.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord have mercy.

We confess that we are distracted, overwhelmed by the tempations of our hearts :

fill us with your Spirit.

Christ, have mercy.

Christ have mercy.

We confess to you our weakness, our inability to fix our eyes on you alone:

fill us with your Spirit.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Blessed are you, Sovereign God, creator of all,

to you be glory and praise for ever.

As your dawn renews the face of the earth

bringing light and life to all creation,

may we rejoice in this day you have made;

as we wake refreshed from the depths of sleep,

open our eyes to behold your presence

and strengthen our hands to do your will,

that the world may rejoice and give you praise.

Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Blessed be God forever.

The night has passed,

and the day lies open before, us;

let us pray with one heart and mind.

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day,

so may the light of your presence, O God,

set our hearts on fire with love for you;

now and for ever. AMEN

Praying the Jesus Prayer: Part 1

“Jesus Christ son of God have mercy on me”

The words above, The Jesus Prayer, are sometimes referred to as the Prayer of the Heart. In part, it is a way to recollect oneself and try and stay in a place of stillness. This then becomes a place where it is possible to listen to God. The prayer encourages a simple sense of presence, a state of imageless gazing. As Christians we wish to be close to God and be able to trust him; to cast our anxieties upon him in patient trust and faith as a child to its parent. We wish to grow in love of him, and be filled with his love, to be able to be as close to him as Jeuss was. To be still, and rest in the arms of the God who calls us and loves us, drawing us ever closer to himself, and surrender all we are.

Prayers and readings

for week of 19th Trinity 18th – 25th October

We are living in very difficult times. We cannot tell what will lie before us in the next few months of winter and into spring; all we can do is listen, and act on what we are asked to do by the Government. The unfortunate thing at the moment is that here, in rural North Northumberland, we are being grouped with the rest of Northumberland, where things are much worse. All this causes people to become anxious and worried about the future - so what can we do? We are told to look after our physical and mental health, but how often have you heard about our Spiritual health and wellbeing? Probably not very often, but it is really important. Some people might well ask “what is my Spiritual health?” One definition is: “the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things”. In other words, something that we do which gives us a sense of peace and purpose in life. This could mean different things to different people. Every morning when I get up, I look at Yeavering Bell and quietly say to myself the first two verses of Psalm 121 “I will lift my eyes to the hills; from where is my help to come? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth”. This helps me to focus on the day ahead, and then later, after saying Morning Prayer, I know that God is with me and that I can connect with others, and hopefully help them through their day. I wonder what you do to help your Spiritual well-being? Perhaps you have a quiet spot that you go to to sit and think, or you might read your Bible, or have a special prayer that you use each day. Whatever it is, concentrate on that sense of peace and purpose in your life and all will be well.

Feast of Luke the Evangelist – 19th October

Almighty God, you called Luke the physician,

whose praise is in the gospel,

to be an evangelist and physician of the soul:

by the grace of the Spirit

and through the wholesome medicine of the gospel,

give your Church the same love and power to heal;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen
