Evensong, Prayer and Psalm.
By Senior Pastor Don Roy Hemingway.
Gooooooooooooooooooooood Evening brethren, peace unto you and the grace of our lord Jesus be with you. May the Almighty God of hosts stay ever with you this evening and thank you, for joining us here at ‘The Church of Jerusalem and the Christian Nation’ for worship and praise. Let us begin as is our tradition every day here at the Nation, by reading from the word of God. Amen………
Evening Psalm.Psalm 81. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)1 Sing aloud unto God our strength; make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.3 Blow the trumpet in the new moon, at the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.5 This He ordained in Joseph as a testimony, when He went out through the land of Egypt, where I heard a language that I understood not:6 “I removed his shoulder from the burden; his hands were delivered from the pots.7 Thou called in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder. I tested thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah8 Hear, O My people, and I will testify unto thee, O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto Me!9 There shall be no strange god among thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.10 I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt. Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
For the Children.
11 “But My people would not hearken to My voice, and Israel would have none of Me.12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust, and they walked in their own counsels.13 Oh that My people had hearkened unto Me, and Israel had walked in My ways!14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned My and against their adversaries.”15 The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto Him, but their time should have endured for ever.16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat, and, “With honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.”Evening Prayer.Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.
Have a great day Brothers and Sisters of the CJCN, 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. Amen.
