Sunday Night Prayer

Sunday night prayer – Resurrection

Almighty God, from whose love neither life nor death can separate us: let the whole church throughout the world praise you.  Let us this night praise you.

(Silence)

By your death upon the cross

Raise us, good Lord

By burial in the grave

Raise us, good Lord

By your descending into hell

Raise us, good Lord

By your mighty resurrection

Raise us, good Lord

By your conquering death

Raise us, good Lord

By your risen appearances

Raise us, good Lord

By your presence among us

Raise us, good Lord

Psalm 113

Praise the name of the Lord.  Alleluia!

Alleluia!

Give praise, you servants of the Lord;

Praise the name of the Lord.

Let the name of the Lord be blessed;

From this time forth and evermore

From the rising of the sun to its going down

Let the name of the Lord be praised.

The Lord is high above all nations,

And his glory above the heavens.

Who is like the Lord our God, who sits enthroned on high,

But stoops to behold the heavens and the earth?

He takes up the weak out of the dust

And lifts up the poor from the ashes.

He sets them with the princes,

With the princes of this people.

He makes the woman of a childless house

To be a joyful mother of children.

Praise the name of the Lord.  Alleluia!

1 Peter 1:3-5  (NRSVA)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

GREAT AND WONDERFUL

All nations shall come and worship you, O Christ,

And share in the feast of your kingdom.

Great and wonderful are your deeds, 

Lord God the Almighty.

Just and true are your ways, 

O ruler of nations.

Who shall not revere and praise your name, O Lord?

For you alone are holy.

All nations shall come and worship in your presence:

For your just dealings have been revealed.

To the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb

Be blessing and honour and glory and might, 

Forever and ever.  Amen.

All nations shall come and worship you, O Christ,

And share in the feast of your kingdom.

Lord have mercy,

Lord have mercy,

Christ have mercy,

Christ have mercy

Lord have mercy

Lord have mercy.

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours

now and for ever.

Amen.

With all who are in darkness and weariness

Stand among us in your risen power.

With all who are in doubt and despair

Stand among us in your risen power.

With all in trouble and fearfulness

Stand among us in your risen power.

With all who are in sickness and weakness

Stand among us in your risen power.

With all who are frail and at the point of death

Stand among us in your risen power.

Risen Lord, light of all peoples, who on the third day rose again from the dead, come, stand among us: dispel the darkness of night with your celestial brightness, that we may walk before you as in the day, and as children of light; to the glory of your name, Risen Lord, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever.  Amen

Christ, risen in glory, scatter the darkness before us, that we may walk as children of light until we come to that light which is eternal.
