Trinity 7

Leader:        Grace mercy and peace be with you

All:             and also with you.

 

Leader:        We come from scattered lives to meet with God.

                   Let us recognise his presence with us.

                   A moment of quiet as we call upon God and seek his presence

                   As God’s people we have gathered:

All:             let us worship him together.

 

 

Leader:        The world belongs to God,

All:             The earth and all its people.

 

Leader:        How good it is, how wonderful,

All:             To live together in unity.

 

Leader:        Love and faith come together,

All:             Justice and peace join hands.

 

Leader:        If Christ’s disciples keep silent

All:             These stones would shout aloud.

 

Leader:        Open our lips, O God,

All:             And our mouths shall proclaim your praise.

 

 

Leader:        The peace of the Lord be always with you.

All:             And also with you.

Song

Chorus

Come now is the time to worship

Come now is the time to give your heart

Come just as you are to worship

Come just as you are before your God

Come

 

Verse

One day every tongue will confess You are God

One day every knee will bow

Still the greatest pleasure remains for those

Who gladly choose You now

 

Chorus

 

A time for reflection and confession:

 

Leader:        Holy God, maker of all

All:             Have mercy on us.

 

Leader:        Jesus Christ, Servant of the poor

All:             Have mercy on us.

 

Leader:        Holy Spirit, Breath of life

All:             Have mercy on us.

 

silence

 

All:              Before God, with the people of God,

                   We confess to our brokenness:

                   To the ways we wound our lives,

                   The lives of others,

                   And the life of the world.

 

Leader:        May God forgive you, Christ renew you,

                   And the Spirit enable you to grow in love.

All:             Amen.

 

Leader:        Let us pray (collect)

Grant, Lord, that we who are baptized into the death of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ may continually put to death our evil desires and be buried with Him;

And that through the grave and gate of death we may pass to our joyful resurrection, through His merits, who died and was buried and rose again for us, your Son Jesus Christ

Amen.

 

 We say the Lord’s Prayer together

                   Our Father in heaven,

                   Hallowed be your name,

                   Your kingdom come,

                   Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,

                   Give us today our daily bread,

                   Forgive us our sins,

                   As we forgive those who sin against us,

                   Save us in the time of trial

                   And deliver us from evil,

                   For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,

                   Now and forever. Amen.

Hymn

Dear Lord and Father of mankind

Forgive our foolish ways

Re-clothe us in our rightful mind

In purer lives Thy service find

In deeper reverence praise

In deeper reverence praise.

 

In simple trust like theirs who heard

Beside the Syrian sea

The gracious calling of the Lord

Let us like them without a word

Rise up and follow Thee

Rise up and follow Thee.

 

O Sabbath rest by Galilee

O calm of hills above

Where Jesus knelt to share with Thee

The silence of eternity

Interpreted by love

Interpreted by love.

 

With that deep hush subduing all

Our words and works that drown

The tender whisper of Thy call

As noiseless let Thy blessing fall

As fell Thy manna down

As fell Thy manna down.

 

Drop Thy still dews of quietness

Till all our strivings cease

Take from our souls the strain and stress

And let our ordered lives confess

The beauty of Thy peace

The beauty of Thy peace.

 

 

Reading :  Romans 7:1-13 Living Bible

 

 

Leader:        Be with us Spirit of God.

All:             nothing can separate us from your love.

 

Leader:        Breathe on us, breath of God;

All:             fill us with your saving power.              

 

Leader:        Speak in us, Wisdom of God;

All:             bring strength, healing and peace.

 

 

Reading: Romans 7:14-25 Living Bible

 

 

Reflection from the Vicarage    

 

Now let us pray together, our prayers have been written by Martin Kingston.

 

 

Final Song

In Christ alone my hope is found

He is my light, my strength, my song

This Cornerstone, this solid ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease

My Comforter, my All in All

Here in the love of Christ I stand.

 

In Christ alone, who took on flesh

Fulness of God in helpless babe

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones He came to save

Til on that cross as Jesus died

The wrath of God was satisfied

For every sin on Him was laid

Here in the death of Christ I live.

 

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again

And as He stands in victory

Sin’s curse has lost it’s grip on me

For I am His and He is mine

Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

 

No guilt in life, no fear in death

This is the power of Christ in me

From life’s first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand

Til He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

Leader:        May God bless you.

                   May God keep you ever with great care

                   And lead your lives with love.

All:             May Christ’s warm welcome shine in our lives,

                   And peace in heart and home

                   Prevail through every day

                   Till greater life shall call.    

         

                   And the blessing of God Almighty,

                   The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,

                   Be among you and remain with you always.

All:             Amen.
