All:             Justice and peace join hands.

 

Leader:        If Christ’s disciples keep silent

Rom 1:16    For I am not ashamed of the gospel; it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith,        

 

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.

 

Rom 1:25  because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen.    

 

Rom 3: 23 since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

 

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.

 

Rom 5: 1-2          Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God.      

 

Leader:        Let us pray            (collect for 16th after Trinity)

 

All:             Lord of Creation,

                   Whose glory is around and within us:

                   Open our eyes to your wonders,

                   That we may serve you with reverence

                   And know your peace at our lives’ end,

                   Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

                   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.

Rom 5: 6-8 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.

 

Rom 8: 1  There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 

Rom 8: 14-16   For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. 15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, ‘Abba! Father!’ 16 it is that very Spirit bearing witness

 

Rom 8: 19  For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; 

 

 

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.

Rom 8: 26   the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.

 

Rom 8: 31  What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?

 

Rom 8: 37-39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Rom 10: 9 if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

 

Rom 10: 17         So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.

 

 

Reflection from the Rectory   

 

 

Now let us pray together

 

Rom 12: 1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

 

Time to Pray      (prayers led by Mark and Anne Wilton )

 

Rom 13:10 Love does no wrong to a neighbour; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.

Rom 14: 22 The faith that you have, have as your own conviction before God.

                   fill you with all joy and peace in believing,

                   so that you may abound in hope

                   by the power of the Holy Spirit. Rom15: 13

         

                   And the blessing of God Almighty,

                   The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,

                   Be among you and remain with you always.

All:             Amen.
