THE BIDDING PRAYER

 

Dearly beloved brethren, the scripture moveth us in sundry places to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness; and that we should not dissemble nor cloke them before the face of Almighty God our heavenly Father; but confess them with an humble, lowly, penitent, and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by his infinite goodness and mercy. And although we ought at all times humbly to acknowledge our sins before God; yet ought we most chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet together to render thanks for the great

benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear his most holy Word, and to ask those things which are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul. Wherefore I pray and beseech you, as many as are here present, to accompany me with a pure heart, and humble voice, unto the throne of the heavenly grace, saying after me: 

THE CONFESSION

the

All               Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred,                                       and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep.

                    We have followed too much the devices and desires

                    of our own hearts. 

                    We have offended against thy holy laws.

                    We have left undone those things which we ought to                                   have done; and we have done those things which we

                    ought not to have done; and there is no health in us. 

                     

                    But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders.

                    Spare thou them, O God, which confess their faults.

                    Restore thou them that are penitent;

                    according to thy promises declared unto mankind

                    in Christ Jesu our Lord.

                    And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake, that

                    we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober

                    life, to the glory of thy holy Name. Amen. 

 

 

THE ABSOLUTION

the

Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness, and live; and hath given power, and commandment, to his ministers, to declare and pronounce to his people, being penitent, the absolution and remission of their sins: he pardoneth and absolveth all them that truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel. 

the

Wherefore let us beseech him to grant us true repentance, and his Holy Spirit, that those things may please him, which we do at this present; and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure, and holy; so that at the last we may come to his eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All                Amen. 

 

If no priest is present the person saying the Service shall read the following Collect for the Twenty-First Sunday after Trinity.

 

GRANT, we beseech thee, merciful Lord, to thy faithful people pardon and peace; that they may be cleansed from all their sins, and serve thee with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

All                Amen

the

All               Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy          

                    name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, in earth as

                    it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And

                    forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that

                    trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation,

                    but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the

                    power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

 

THE PRECES 

the

O Lord open thou our lips.

All            And our mouth shall show forth thy praise.

the

O God make speed to save us.

All             O Lord, make haste to help us

the

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

All            As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, 

                 world without end. Amen.

the

Praise ye the Lord.

All            The Lord’s name be praised.

 

PROVERB

THE MAGNIFICAT 

the

All            My soul doth magnify the Lord:

                 and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

                 For he hath regarded:

                 the lowliness of his hand-maiden.

                 For behold, from henceforth:

                 all generations shall call me blessed.

                 For he that is mighty hath magnified me:

                 and holy is his Name.

                 And his mercy is on them that fear him:

                 throughout all generations.

                 He hath shewed strength with his arm:

                 he hath scattered the proud 

                 in the imagination of their hearts.

                 He hath put down the mighty from their seat:

                 and hath exalted the humble and meek.

                 He hath filled the hungry with good things:

                 and the rich he hath sent empty away.

                 He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel:

                 as he promised to our forefathers, 

                 Abraham and his seed, for ever.

                 Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :

                 and to the Holy Ghost;

                 As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be :

                 world without end. Amen.                                                              

LUKE 1.46-55

PROVERB REFLECTION

 

THE NUNC DIMITTIS 

the

All            LORD, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace:

                 according to thy word.

                 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation;

                 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

                 To be a light to lighten the Gentiles:

                 and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

                 Glory be to the Father, and to the Son:

                 and to the Holy Ghost;

                 As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be

                 world without end. Amen.                                                                  

LUKE 2.29-32

THE APOSTLES’ CREED

the

All            I believe in God the Father Almighty,

                 maker of heaven and earth:

                 and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,

                 who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,

                 born of the Virgin Mary,

                 suffered under Pontius Pilate,

                 was crucified, dead, and buried.

                 He descended into hell;

                 the third day he rose again from the dead;

                 he ascended into heaven,

                 and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

                 from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

                 I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church;

                 the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins;

                 the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

                 Amen.

THE PRAYERS

 

A General Thanksgiving

 

ALMIGHTY God, Father of all mercies, 

we thine unworthy servants do give thee most humble and hearty thanks 

for all thy goodness and loving-kindness to us and to all men; 

We bless thee for our creation, preservation,

and all the blessings of this life; 

but above all for thine inestimable love in the redemption of the world 

by our Lord Jesus Christ, 

for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. 

And we beseech thee, 

to give us that due sense of all thy mercies, 

that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful, 

and that we shew forth thy praise, 

not only with our lips, but in our lives; 

by giving up ourselves to thy service, 

and by walking before thee in holiness and righteousness all our days;             through Jesus Christ our Lord, 

to whom with thee and the Holy Ghost be all honour and glory, 

world without end. Amen.

A Prayer for the Clergy

Give grace, O heavenly Father,

to all Bishops and Curates,

that they may both by their life and doctrine

set forth thy true and lively Word,

and rightly and duly administer thy holy Sacraments:

And to all thy people give thy heavenly grace;

and specially to this congregation here present;

that, with meek heart and due reverence,

they may hear, and receive thy holy Word;

truly serving thee in holiness and righteousness

all the days of their life. Amen 

For the Queen & those who govern our land

We beseech thee also to save and defend

all Christian Kings, Princes, and Governors;

and specially thy servant ELIZABETH our Queen;

that under her we may be godly and quietly governed:

And grant unto her whole Council,

and to all that are put in authority under her,

that they may truly and indifferently minister justice,

to the punishment of wickedness and vice,

and to the maintenance of thy true religion, and virtue. Amen

Prayer for our country         

ALMIGHTY God,

who hast given us this good land for our heritage;

We humbly beseech thee

that we may always prove ourselves

a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will.

Bless our land with honourable industry,

sound learning, and pure manners.

Save us from violence, discord, and confusion;

from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way.

Defend our liberties,

and fashion into one united people

the multitudes brought hither

out of many kindreds and tongues.

Endue with the spirit of wisdom

those to whom in thy Name

we entrust the authority of government,

that there may be justice and peace at home,

and that, through obedience to thy law,

we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth.

In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness,

and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail;

all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For the Diversity of Races and Cultures 

O God, who created all peoples in thy image,

we thank thee for the wonderful diversity of races and cultures

   in this world.

Enrich our lives by ever-widening circles of fellowship,

and show us thy presence in those who differ most from us,

until our knowledge of thy love

is made perfect in our love for all thy children;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

For all Conditions of men

O God, the Creator and Preserver of all mankind,

we humbly beseech thee for all sorts and conditions of men;

that thou wouldest be pleased

to make thy ways known unto them,

thy saving health unto all nations.

More especially we pray

for the good estate of the Catholic Church;

that it may be so guided and governed by thy good Spirit,

that all who profess and call themselves Christians

may be led into the way of truth,

and hold the faith in unity of spirit,

in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life.

Finally we commend to thy fatherly goodness

all those, who are any ways afflicted or distressed in mind, body, or estate; especially those within our own community,

those on our prayer list

and those known to us personally;

that it may please thee to comfort and relieve them,

according to their several necessities,

giving them patience under their sufferings,

and a happy issue out of all their afflictions.

And this we beg for Jesus Christ his sake. Amen.

 

Prayer for the Dead

We also bless thy holy Name for all thy servants

departed this life in thy faith and fear;

beseeching thee to give us grace so to follow their good examples,

that with them we may be partakers of thy heavenly kingdom: Amen

 

We now have a moment of silent prayer to bring to the Lord those people and things on our hearts and mind.

Silence

 

Prayer for Guidance

O God, by whom the meek are guided in judgment,

and light riseth up in darkness for the godly:

Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties,

the grace to ask what thou wouldest have us to do,

that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices,

and that in thy light we may see light,

and in thy straight path may not stumble;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
