The Church of Jerusalem and the Christian Nation Preaching the word of God.

The CJCN Evensong Psalm and Prayer.

By Senior Pastor Don’t Roy Hemingway.

Verse of the Day.

Zechariah 7:9-10.

9 “This is what the LORD Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’

The Evening Psalm.

Psalm 69. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

Save me, O God, for the waters have come in unto my soul.

I sink into deep mire where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters where the floods overflow me.

I am weary of my crying, my throat is dry; mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head; they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty. Then I was made to restore that which I took not away.

O God, Thou knowest my foolishness, and my sins are not hid from Thee.

Let not them that wait on Thee, O Lord God of hosts, be ashamed for my sake, let not those that seek Thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel,

because for Thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

I have become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.

For the zeal for Thine house hath eaten me up, and the reproaches of them that reproached Thee have fallen upon me.

10 When I wept and chastened my soul with fasting, that was turned to my reproach.

11 I also made sackcloth my garment, and I became a proverb to them.

12 They that sit at the gate speak against me, and I have become the song of the drunkards.

13 But as for me, my prayer is unto Thee: O Lord, in an acceptable time, O God, in the multitude of Thy mercy hear me in the truth of Thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink; let me be delivered from them that hate me and out of the deep waters.

15 Let not the floodwater overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up; and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

16 Hear me, O Lord, for Thy lovingkindness is good; turn unto me according to the multitude of Thy tender mercies.

9b64e-towerbabel

17 And hide not Thy face from Thy servant, for I am in trouble; hear me speedily.

18 Draw nigh unto my soul and redeem it; deliver me because of mine enemies.

19 Thou hast known my reproach and my shame and my dishonor; mine adversaries are all before Thee.

20 Reproach hath broken my heart, and I am full of heaviness; I looked for some to take pity, but there was none, and for comforters, but I found none.

21 They gave me also gall for my meat, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

22 Let their table become a snare before them, and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.

23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.

24 Pour out Thine indignation upon them, and let Thy wrathful anger take hold of them.

25 Let their habitation be desolate, and let none dwell in their tents.

26 For they persecute him whom Thou hast smitten, and they talk of the grief of those whom Thou hast wounded.

27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity, and let them not come into Thy righteousness.

28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

29 But I am poor and sorrowful; let Thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.

31 This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or a bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

32 The humble shall see this and be glad, and your heart shall live, that seek God.

33 For the Lord heareth the poor, and despiseth not His prisoners.

34 Let the heaven and earth praise Him, the seas and every thing that moveth therein.

35 For God will save Zion and will build the cities of Judah, that they may dwell there and possess it.

36 The seed also of His servants shall inherit it, and them that love His name shall dwell therein.

The Evening prayer Prayer.

O Lord our Father God, give your blessing to our daily work, that we may do it in faith, with all our hearts, as working for the Lord and not for human masters.
All our powers of body and mind are yours, and we devote them to your service.
Sanctify us and the work in which we are engaged; let us not be lazy, but diligent in spirit.
O Lord, bless our efforts that they may bring forth in us the fruits of true wisdom.
Teach us to seek truth and lead us to find it, but grant that we may always speak the truth in love, that while we know earthly things, we may know you, and be known by you, through and in your Son Jesus Christ.
Give us this day your Holy Spirit, that we may be yours in body and spirit in all our work and all our refreshments; through Jesus Christ your Son, our Lord. Amen.

Blessing.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious unto you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.

May God bless you all and ‘The Church of the Christian Nation’, Amen.
