Vespers

Versicle (Psalm 40.13) & Response (1 Timothy 1.17)

“To God, immortal, invisible and all wise, be honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.”

A Reading

A Moment of Silence

Supplications
I pray for my needs to be perfectly met.
I pray for my loved ones to be safe and well.
I pray for peace in the world.
I pray for blessings to flow into my life.
I pray for goodwill to radiate from me into the world.
I pray for miracles to occur where they are needed most.
I pray for the concerns, conditions, and people that I now name…

These prayers I offer in the spirit of Jesus who taught us to pray saying…

“Our [God] who art in heaven, hallowed by thy Names. Thy kin-dom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today 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. Amen.” (Roman Catholic version, adapted)

“Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary…pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.” (Traditional, adapted)

“We reverently pray for eternal harmony in the universe.
May the weather be seasonable; may the harvest be fruitful.
May countries exist in harmony, and may all people enjoy happiness.” (Buddhist prayer)

“May children, the aged, the unprotected – be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain [enlightenment].” (Buddhist prayer)

Benediction
“May the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace…Amen.” (The Apostle Paul)
