Evening Prayer Wednesday March 9th 2022

Our prayers examine scripture and support our response in a prayerful and reflective way. Rick is one of St Luke’s Church Wardens and he leads Evening and Morning Prayer this week. Evening Prayer – Rick prays with us and asks us if we paused today, and if we did where was God? Rick prays for all those travelling this night: May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand. Amen.

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.

‘Lent Prose (Attende, Domine)’, based on a traditional Gaelic Christian prayer text, composed by John Rutter (1945 – ). Recorded remotely by the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in their homes, and edited together.
