Evening Prayer Wednesday March 23rd 2022

Our prayers examine scripture and support our response in a prayerful and reflective way. Matilda leads Evening and Morning Prayer this week. Evening Prayer – Matilda and her mother pray for God’s presence today as we pray and ask us to consider when we felt most alive today?

We pray for world peace and for the people of Ukraine, and of Russia. We ask for wise decision-making and the moral integrity of all world leaders in the face of evil – most especially this night.

Te Lucis Ante Terminum composed by William Byrd (c. 1505 – 1623), Compline hymn text is anonymous. Recorded remotely by the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in their homes, and edited together.
(Te Lucis Ante Terminum translates as; “To thee, before the end of the light, Creator of all things, we pray, that thy accustomed mercy may be our protector and guard. Let dreams depart from us, and the phantoms of night, and restrain our enemy, that our bodies may not be polluted. Grant this, all-powerful Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee in eternity reigns with the Holy Spirit
