John 14.15-21 The Promise of the Holy Spirit

 

‘If you love me, you will keep* my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you for ever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.

‘I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.’

 

Hymns

 

Let all the world in ev’ry corner sing,
“My God and King!”
The heav’ns are not too high,
God’s praise may thither fly;
the earth is not too low,
God’s praises there may grow.
Let all the world in ev’ry corner sing,
“My God and King!”

Let all the world in ev’ry corner sing,
“My God and King!”
The church with psalms must shout:
no door can keep them out.
But, more than all, the heart
must bear the longest part.
Let all the world in ev’ery corner sing,
“My God and King!”

 

 

Take my life and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and my days;
let them flow in endless praise,
let them flow in endless praise.

Take my hands and let them move
at the impulse of thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
swift and beautiful for thee,
swift and beautiful for thee.

Take my voice and let me sing
always, only, for my King.
Take my lips and let them be
filled with messages from thee,
filled with messages from thee.

Take my silver and my gold;
not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
every power as thou shalt choose,
every power as thou shalt choose.

Take my will and make it thine;
it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart it is thine own;
it shall be thy royal throne,
it shall be thy royal throne.

Take my love; my Lord, I pour
at thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
ever, only, all for thee,
ever, only, all for thee.

 

All creatures of our God and King,
lift up your voice and with us sing
alleluia, alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
thou silver moon with softer gleam,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
ye clouds that sail in heav’n along,
O praise him, alleluia!
Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice,
ye lights of evening, find a voice,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
make music for thy Lord to hear,
alleluia, alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright,
that givest man both warmth and light,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

And all ye men of tender heart,
forgiving others, take your part,
O sing ye, alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
praise God and on him cast your care,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship him in humbleness,
O praise him, alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
and praise the Spirit, three in one,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

 

Intercessions

Crucifix

From Margaret Glover

 

 

Dear Lord, in whom we live and move and have our being, we offer you our prayers in the promise that you will hear us.

Help us to listen and understand your response.

We bring before you our thanksgivings for the abundance of your creation. Guide us towards better stewardship of your many gifts.

Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

We ask your blessings on those called to ministry. In silence let us offer our individual prayers for the leaders and pastoral team of St Peter’s.

Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

We offer you our thanks for your Holy Spirit; may we become joyful dwelling places for this wondrous gift.

Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

We bring before you our prayers for the health of our neighbours, families and friends. We give you thanks for those who offer their gifts in service to healing the sick, feeding the poor and advocating for the neglected and abused in our midst. Help us all to pray with true love and hope.

Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

We pray for those who face death without the familiar touch and comforting voices of those they know and love. We pray as well for those who keep watch over them in their hearts.

Lord in your mercy: Hear our prayer

We offer our prayers in silence for the souls of the departed.

Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord,

And may light perpetual shine upon them.

We come before you as your children and ask your patience and guidance as we learn to shine as a light in the world and walk humbly with you, our God.

Merciful Father, accept these prayers, for the sake of your Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

AMEN

Read Vicar’s Message on Rogation Sunday.

 

Psalm 107.1-9

 

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

for his steadfast love endures for ever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
those he redeemed from trouble
and gathered in from the lands,
from the east and from the west,
from the north and from the south.
Some wandered in desert wastes,
finding no way to an inhabited town;
hungry and thirsty,
their soul fainted within them.
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress;
he led them by a straight way,
until they reached an inhabited town.
Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wonderful works to humankind.
For he satisfies the thirsty,
and the hungry he fills with good things.
