THE RINGING OF THE BELLS



We prepare for worship in silence
Leader:   The Lord be with you,
People:  And with thy spirit
Leader:   O Come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.
People:  You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being. 

Leader:   You are worthy indeed Lord to receive not just the worship and praise of our lips, but also of our hearts and souls.  You created all things for a purpose, and we are part of your purpose in this place and at this moment in time.
People:  Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks, honor and power, and strength be to our God for ever and ever.  Amen  
Leader:   As we draw close to you, Lord, and the brightness of your love we are made only too aware of our own shortcomings.  You planted a garden and set us within to tend and   care for it, created minds to appreciate, and voices to raise in worship.
People:  Forgive our neglect of your garden.
Leader:   Increase our awareness of the beauty of your creation and our willingness to praise its creator. Through your Son, Jesus Christ you opened up the way for all to know and worship you.
People:  Forgive us for those times when we ignored opportunities to share the Good   News of your Love and Grace with others.
Leader:   Through the indwelling of your Spirit you empower your Church.
People:  Forgive our uncertainty and lack of faith that often causes us to limit your power in this present age.  As we draw close to you in worship, Lord, we trust in your unfailing love; your forgiving love; your restoring love.
Leader:   ‘For the Lord is a great God, the great King above all gods. In his hands are the  depths of the earth and the mountain peaks belong to him.  The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.’  (Ps 95)
Reader:  A reading from the Old Testament                          
The Word of the Lord.
All:  Thanks be to God.

Leader:  Together we will read the appointed Psalm for today.

Reader:  A Reading from the Epistle.  
               The Word of the Lord
All:         Thanks be to God
Reader:  Stand and hear the Gospel of the Lord.
              The Gospel of the Lord
All:         Praise to you, Lord Christ
A reading about the Saint of the day.
Leader:   Collect of the Day
Leader:   In the beauty of this moment
People:  We worship you.
Leader:   In the fellowship of your people
People:  We worship you.
Leader:   In the presence of your Spirit

People:  We worship you.
Leader:   In the company of your creation
People:  We worship you.
Leader:   Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Glorious Trinity
People:  We worship you.
Leader:   Enfold us in your love. 
               The warmth of your love.
               The comfort of your love.
               The reassurance of your love.
               The healing of your love.
               Enfold us in your love.
People:  That we might share that same love through our lives.
Leader:   Let us have a time of quiet.  A precious moment or two to think about the God we   serve, the God we worship, the God we love.   
Silence
Leader:   Let us think about Jesus, His life, His mission, His death and resurrection.
Silence
Leader:   Let us think about the Holy Spirit, His power, wisdom and presence in our lives.
Silence

Wednesday Evening Celtic Prayer

​​​​Trinity Episcopal Church

​​Trinity Episcopal Church

Please Note:  We will not have Wednesday Evening Prayer on November 23rd.

Leader:   As part of our act of worship we use those words which Jesus himself taught his  disciples to pray.
                     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, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Leader:   Almighty God, we join with the Psalmist in declaring ‘O Lord God Almighty, who is   like you? You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds you.’
Gathering in this place where heaven and earth whisper greeting; in this place where the High King of Heaven comes to meet us.  We join our faith with the Host  of Saints who have gone before us, and we rejoice.
Leader:   We take the light of our prayer into the world.
People:  To pray for those unable to pray; to offer ourselves as answers to prayer.
Leader:   We take the light of your compassion into the world.
People:  To come alongside those who are oppressed and suffering, may we be as Christ for them.
Leader:   We take the light of God’s power into the world.
People:  God’s strength made perfect in weakness.
Leader:  Sun of Righteousness, so gloriously risen, shine in our hearts as we celebrate our   redemption, that we may see your way to our eternal home, where you reign, one   holy and undivided Trinity, now and forever.  Amen. 
People:  In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen
Leader:   Until we gather again in the presence of the Sacred Three in One,
People:  May we be held in the grip of grace.
Leader:   Let us bless the Lord.
People:  Christ is Risen.


You are invited to stay in this quiet place, or go in peace to proclaim the Good News of Christ to the world.
