Morning Prayer for Trinity 3

 

Preparation

O Lord, open our lips

All   and our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

This opening prayer may be said

The night has passed, and the day lies open before us;

let us pray with one heart and mind.

Silence is kept.

As we rejoice in the gift of this new day, so may the light of your presence, O God, set our hearts on fire with love for you; now and for ever.

All   Amen.

 

The Word of God

Psalm 89:1-4,15-18

I will sing of your steadfast love, O LORD,  for ever;

with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.

2 I declare that your steadfast love is established for ever;

your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.

3 You said, ‘I have made a covenant with

my chosen one, I have sworn to my servant David:

4 “I will establish your descendants for ever, and build your throne for all generations.”

Happy are the people who know the festal shout,

who walk, O LORD, in the light of your countenance;

16 they exult in your name all day long, and extol  your righteousness.

17 For you are the glory of their strength; by your favour our horn is exalted.

18 For our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen

 

Jeremiah 28:5-9

5 Then the prophet Jeremiah spoke to the prophet Hananiah in the presence of the priests and all the people who were standing in the house of the LORD; 6 and the prophet Jeremiah said, ‘Amen! May the LORD do so; may the LORD fulfil the words that you have prophesied, and bring back to this place from Babylon the vessels of the house of the LORD, and all the exiles. 7 But listen now to this word that I speak in your hearing and in the hearing of all the people. 8 The prophets who preceded you and me from ancient times prophesied war, famine, and pestilence against many countries and great kingdoms. 9 As for the prophet who prophesies peace, when the word of that prophet comes true, then it will be known that the LORD has truly sent the prophet.’

40 ‘Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent

me. 41 Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; 42 and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple— truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.’

Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead.

All   And Christ shall give you light.

You have died and your life is hid with Christ in God.

All   Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead.

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on the earth.

All   And Christ shall give you  light.

When Christ our life appears

you will appear with him in glory.

All   Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead,

and Christ shall give you light.

to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

  1. Free to worship him without fear, ♦

holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

  1.     And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, ♦

for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

  1.     To give his people knowledge of salvation ♦

by the forgiveness of all their sins.

  1. In the tender compassion of our God ♦

the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

  1. To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, ♦

and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
