Hymn: The First Song of Isaiah

First song of Isaiah

 

Prayers

L  Holy God, holy and most gracious Father,

have mercy and hear 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

     and the power and the glory

     forever and ever. Amen.

 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

     maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,

     who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

     born of the virgin Mary,

     suffered under Pontius Pilate,

     was crucified, died and was buried.

     He descended into hell.

     The third day He rose again from the dead.

     He ascended into heaven

     and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

     From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

     the holy Christian Church,

          the communion of saints,

     the forgiveness of sins,

     the resurrection of the body,

     and the life T everlasting. Amen.

 

Scripture Reading                                                                   Philippians 2:5-11

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 

Homily

 

L  Show us Your steadfast love, O Lord,

and grant us Your salvation.

L  Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness.

and let Your saints shout for joy.

L  Lord, keep this nation under Your care,

and guide us in the way of justice and truth.

L  Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,

for You judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon the earth.

L  Let the peoples praise You, O God;

let all the peoples praise You!

L  For the needy shall not always be forgotten,

and the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.

L  Create in me a clean heart, O God,

and renew a right spirit within me.

L  Hear my prayer, O Lord;

let my cry come to You.

 

L  Let us pray.

Gracious Jesus, our Lord and our God, at this hour You bore our sins in Your own body on the tree so that we, being dead to sin, might live unto righteousness. Have mercy upon us now and at the hour of our death, and grant to us, Your servants, with all others who devoutly remember Your blessed passion, a holy and peaceful life in this world and through Your grace eternal glory in the life to come, where, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, You live and reign, one God, now and forever.

Amen.

 

I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me.

 

L  Let us bless the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

L  The Lord bless us, defend us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

Amen.
