Noon Prayer

Thursday before Lectionary 16
Thursday, July 20, 2017

 
O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Alleluia.

Psalm 126   In convertendo

1

When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, *

then were we like those who dream.

2

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, *

and our tongue with shouts of joy.

3

Then they said among the nations, *

̉The Lord has done great things for them.”

4

The Lord has done great things for us, *

and we are glad indeed.

5

Restore our fortunes, O Lord, *

like the watercourses of the Negev.

6

Those who sowed with tears *

will reap with songs of joy.

7

Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed, *

will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

A suitable passage of Scripture is read.

From the rising of the sun to its setting my Name shall be great among the nations, and in every place incense shall be offered to my Name, and a pure offering; for my Name shall be great among the nations, says the Lord of Hosts. Malachi 1:11

Thanks be to God.
 

Lord, have mercy.

Christ, 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.

Save us from the time of trial,

and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours,

now and for ever. Amen.
 

Lord, hear our prayer;

And let our cry come to you.

The Collect of the Day
Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking: Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

(For the ELW Prayer of the Day, see p. 42, Time after Pentecost—Lectionary 16, Year A.)

Heavenly Father, send your Holy Spirit into our hearts, to direct and rule us according to your will, to comfort us in all our afflictions, to defend us from all error, and to lead us into all truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Free intercessions may be offered. (Include your petitions.)

 
Let us bless the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless us and keep us. Amen.
