Prayer @ 7pm


The vision of the Lord offered by the prophet Isaiah is one in which the presence

of the living God fills the Temple and we hear resounding from every corner the

Cry:


‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;

The whole earth is full of his glory.’


The Temple itself is shaken as the fulness of God’s presence is revealed. The prophet Isaiah can do no more than acknowledge who he is before God. Yet, even as he senses his own weakness, he hears the voice of the Lord calling:

“Whom shall I send?” In response, Isaiah says: “Here am I. Send me!”


Today, in the midst of all we face, the fulness of the living God is made known to us in Creation and revealed through Jesus Christ as our Redeemer and by the Holy Spirit as our Sustainer. In our weakness, we also may hear the voice of the Lord calling: “Whom shall I send?” In response, we also may say: “Here am I. Send me!”


We pray:


Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord Almighty;

Living God, may your presence be known to us

Even in our weakness.

May we know you as your presence is revealed

And as your calling is renewed.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord Almighty;

Living God, may your presence be known to us

In all the gifts of Creation.

May we receive these gifts as a sacred trust

And treasure all that you have given to us.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord Almighty;

Living God, may your presence be known to us

In the One whom you have sent to redeem us.

May we share in the life of Christ

And in the life of the body of Christ.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord Almighty;

Living God, may your presence be known to us

In the One whom you have poured out upon us.

May we be renewed by the Spirit

And share in the life the Spirit gives to us.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord Almighty;

Living God, may your presence be known to us

In our worship in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

May you receive us as we are

And accept us in our weakness.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.
