13th Sunday after Trinity

The Gathering

 

Preparation

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

 

Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, ♦

you that by night stand in the house of the Lord.

 

Lift up your hands towards the sanctuary ♦

and bless the Lord.

 

The Lord who made heaven and earth ♦

give you blessing out of Zion.

Psalm 134

 

Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

 

 

This opening prayer may be said

That this evening may be holy, good and peaceful,

let us pray with one heart and mind.

 

Silence is kept.

 

 

As our evening prayer rises before you, O God,

so may your mercy come down upon us

to cleanse our hearts

and set us free to sing your praise

now and for ever.

Amen.

 

The Word of God

 

Psalm 108

1 My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready; ♦

I will sing and give you praise.

 

2 Awake, my soul; awake, harp and lyre, ♦

that I may awaken the dawn.

 

3 I will give you thanks, O Lord, among the peoples; ♦

I will sing praise to you among the nations.

 

4 For your loving-kindness is as high as the heavens ♦

and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

 

5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens ♦

and your glory over all the earth.

 

6 That your beloved may be delivered, ♦

save us by your right hand and answer me.

 

7 God has spoken in his holiness: ♦

‘I will triumph and divide Shechem

and share out the valley of Succoth.

 

8 ‘Gilead is mine and Manasseh is mine; ♦

Ephraim is my helmet and Judah my sceptre.

 

9 ‘Moab shall be my washpot,

over Edom will I cast my sandal, ♦

across Philistia will I shout in triumph.’

 

10 Who will lead me into the strong city? ♦

Who will bring me into Edom?

 

11 Have you not cast us off, O God? ♦

Will you no longer go forth with our troops?

 

12 O grant us your help against the enemy, ♦

for earthly help is in vain.

 

13 Through God will we do great acts, ♦

for it is he that shall tread down our enemies.

 

Glory to the Father and

to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

Romans 13:8-14

Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet’; and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ Love does no wrong to a neighbour; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.

Besides this, you know what time it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers; the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armour of light; let us live honourably as in the day, not in revelling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarrelling and jealousy. Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

Canticle – A Song of the Lamb

Let us rejoice and exult

and give glory and homage to our God. Alleluia.

 

1 Salvation and glory and power
belong to our God, ♦

whose judgements are true and just.

 

2 Praise our God, all you his servants, ♦

all who fear him, both small and great.

 

3 The Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns: ♦

let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory.

 

4 For the marriage of the Lamb has come ♦

and his bride has made herself ready.

 

5 Blessed are those who are invited ♦

to the wedding banquet of the Lamb.

Revelation 19.1b, 2a, 5b, 6b, 7, 9b

 

To the One who sits on the

throne and to the Lamb ♦

be blessing and honour and glory and might,

for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Let us rejoice and exult

and give glory and homage to our God. Alleluia.

Matthew 18.15-20

‘If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have regained that one. But if you are not listened to, take one or two others along with you, so that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If the member refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if the offender refuses to listen even to the church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile and a tax-collector. Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.’

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

and lifting up the lowly.

 

6 He has filled the hungry with good things ♦

and sent the rich away empty.

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.
