Hymn StF 109: In the darkness of the still night

In the darkness of the still night,
in the dawning of the daylight,
in the mystery of creation,
Creator God, you are there.
In the breath of every being,
in the birthing and the growing,
in the earth and all its fullness,
Creator God, you are there.

In the homeless and the hungry,
in the broken and the lonely,
in the grieving of your people,
Creator God, you are there.
In the tears and in the heartache,
in the love through which we serve you,
in the anguish of the dying,
Creator God, you are there.

In our hearts and in our thinking,
in the longing and the dreaming,
in the yearning of our heartbeat,
Creator God, you are there.
In the love for one another,
in the sharing of our being,
in receiving and forgiving,
Creator God, you are there.

In our joys, our hopes, our healing,
in awakening to revealing,
in your call and our responding,
Creator God, you are there.
In our prayer and in our service,
in our praise and in our worship,
in your love that is eternal,
Creator God, you are there.

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…
