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.

 

PSALM 18:31-end

As for God, his way is perfect;

the word of the Lord is tried in the fire; 

he is a shield to all who trust in him.

 

For who is God but the Lord, 

and who is the rock except our God?

 

It is God who girds me about with strength 

and makes my way perfect.

 

He makes my feet like hinds’ feet 

so that I tread surely on the heights.

 

He teaches my hands to fight 

and my arms to bend a bow of bronze. 

 

You have given me the shield of your salvation; 

your right hand upholds me

and your grace has made me great.

 

You enlarge my strides beneath me, 

yet my feet do not slide.

 

I will pursue my enemies and overtake them, 

nor turn again until I have destroyed them.

 

I will smite them down so they cannot rise; 

they shall fall beneath my feet.

 

You have girded me with strength for the battle; 

you will cast down my enemies under me;

 

You will make my foes turn their backs upon me 

and I shall destroy them that hate me. 

 

They will cry out, but there shall be none to help them; 

they will cry to the Lord, but he will not answer.

 

I shall beat them as small as the dust on the wind; 

I will cast them out as the mire in the streets.

 

You will deliver me from the strife of the peoples; 

you will make me the head of the nations.

 

A people I have not known shall serve me;

as soon as they hear me, they shall obey me; 

strangers will humble themselves before me.

 

The foreign peoples will lose heart 

and come trembling out of their strongholds. 

 

The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock! 

Praised be the God of my salvation,

 

Even the God who vindicates me 

and subdues the peoples under me!

 

You that deliver me from my enemies,

you will set me up above my foes; 

from the violent you will deliver me;

 

Therefore will I give you thanks, O Lord, among the nations 

and sing praises to your name,

 

To the one who gives great victory to his king 

and shows faithful love to his anointed,

to David and his seed for ever.

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

REFLECTION OF PSALM 18:31-end

by  Steven Croft

 

As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord is tried in the fire.

‘He makes my feet like hinds’ feet’ (v.34)

 

Where will you find the strength you need for this day, this week and this year? Where will you find the courage to live well as a disciple, to attempt great things for God, to fight the good fight, to overcome the challenges you face? Too many Christians live defeated lives.

 

The whole purpose of Psalm 18 is to impart resilience and strength in our discipleship. The psalm rehearses in public worship and in private prayer God’s power, majesty and might. We recall everything that God has done for us in Christ and in the story of our lives.

 

As we remember together, so we find the courage and strength we need to face the challenges and trials this day and this season bring. We draw down into the present the memories and lessons of the past. Prayer is not a retreat into safety and security for its own sake; prayer is a daily retreat in order to find fresh strength, inner courage and new resources for the battle ahead.

 

Sometimes that confidence will overflow in the kind of joy that leads us to attempt extraordinary things for God: treading on the heights and leaping over walls. Sometimes there will simply be a fresh determination: enough grace for this day to live faithfully and well in the face of adversity and evil. Both kinds of strength are found in abundance in thanksgiving and in praise.

 

 

Refrain:

The Lord my God shall make my darkness to be bright.

 

Prayer:

From your royal throne, O God,

you sent your living Word

to pierce the gloom of oppression;

so, in our souls’ night,

come with your saving help

and penetrate our darkness with the rays of your glory

in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

 

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.
