Service for Noonday Friday Feb 6, 2023 -

Officiant O God, make speed to save us.
People O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as
it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia!

Psalm 120 Ad Domine
1 When I was in trouble, I called to the LORD; *
I called to the LORD, and he answered me.
2 Deliver me, O LORD, from lying lips *
and from the deceitful tongue.
3 What shall be done to you, and what more besides, *
O you deceitful tongue?
4 The sharpened arrows of a warrior, *
along with hot glowing coals.
5 How hateful it is that I must lodge in Meshech *
and dwell among the tents of Kedar!
6 Too long have I had to live *
among the enemies of peace.
7 I am on the side of peace, *
but when I speak of it, they are for war.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Scripture From the rising of the sun to its setting my Name shall be great among the nations, and in every place incense shall be offered to my Name, and a pure offering; for my Name shall be great among the nations, says the Lord of Hosts. Malachi 1:11
Thanks be to God.

Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Let us pray in the words Jesus taught us...

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
And the glory forever. Amen

The Collect
Lord, hear our prayer; And let our cry come to you. Let us pray.

Blessed Savior, at this hour you hung upon the cross, stretching out your loving arms: Grant that all the peoples of the earth may look to you and be saved; for your tender mercies' sake. Amen

Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Comfort and heal all those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit; Barbara, Mark, Diane, Gay, Lois, Michael, give them courage and hope in their troubles, and bring them the joy of your salvation. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

We commend to your mercy all who have died, especially from brutality, gun violence, or wars; that your will for them may be fulfilled; and we pray that we may share with all your saints, especially St. John, in your eternal kingdom. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen
