Hymn StF 390: My God I know

My God! I know, I feel thee mine,
And will not quit my claim,
Till all I have is lost in thine
And all renewed I am.

I hold thee with a trembling hand,
But will not let thee go,
Till steadfastly by faith I stand
And all thy goodness know.

When shall I see the welcome hour
That plants my God in me –
Spirit of health, and life, and power,
And perfect liberty?

Jesus, thine all-victorious love
Shed in my heart abroad;
Then shall my feet no longer rove,
Rooted and fixed in God.

O that in me the sacred fire
Might now begin to glow,
Burn up the dross of base desire,
And make the mountains flow!

O that it now from heaven might fall,
And all my sins consume!
Come, Holy Ghost, for thee I call,
Spirit of burning, come!

Refining fire, go through my heart,
Illuminate my soul;
Scatter thy life through every part,
And sanctify the whole.

Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
Sung by Niamh Prior

Prayers of Intercession

Let us offer our prayer
with all God’s people
through Jesus Christ our Lord
who ever lives to pray for us.

We pray for the needs of the world…
We pray for the Church…
We pray for all in trouble or distress…
We pray for all who make a new beginning today…

(Other petitions may follow.)

  Silent Prayer

God of compassion and mercy,
listen to our prayer.
May what we ask  in Jesus Christ your Son
be done according to his word, who said,

‘Ask, and you will receive,
  Seek, and you will find,
  Knock, and the door will be opened to you.’

To you, merciful God,
Through your Son,
In the life-giving Spirit,
Be glory and praise for ever.  Amen.


Lord’s Prayer

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.


Final Prayer

Lord our God…
