Evensong, Psalm and Prayer.
By Senior Pastor Don Roy Hemingway.
Pastor Don Roy. 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……
Psalm 74. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 O God, why hast Thou cast us off for ever? Why doth Thine anger smoke against the sheep of Thy pasture?
2 Remember Thy congregation, which Thou hast purchased of old, the rod of Thine inheritance, which Thou hast redeemed, this Mount Zion, wherein Thou hast dwelt.
3 Lift up Thy feet unto the perpetual desolations, even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of Thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.
5 Once a man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees,
6 but now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
7 They have cast fire into Thy sanctuary; they have defiled by casting down to the ground the dwelling place of Thy name.
8 They said in their hearts, “Let us destroy them together!” They have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
9 We see not our signs; there is no more any prophet; neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy blaspheme Thy name for ever?
11 Why withdrawest Thou Thy hand, even Thy right hand? Pluck it out of Thy bosom!
12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 Thou didst divide the sea by Thy strength; Thou breakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
14 Thou breakest the heads of Leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood; Thou driedst up mighty rivers.
16 The day is Thine, the night also is Thine; Thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth; Thou hast made summer and winter.
18 Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O Lord, and that the foolish people have blasphemed Thy name.
19 O deliver not the soul of Thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked; forget not the congregation of Thy poor for ever.
20 Have respect unto the covenant, for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed; let the poor and needy praise Thy name.
22 Arise, O God, plead Thine own cause; remember how the foolish man reproacheth Thee daily.
23 Forget not the voice of Thine enemies; the tumult of those that rise up against Thee increaseth continually.
I BELIEVE in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible:
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God; Begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of very God; Begotten, not made; Being of one substance with the Father; By whom all things were made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man: And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried: And the third day lie rose again according to the Scriptures: And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father: And he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead; Whose kingdom, shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord, and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spake by the Prophets: And I believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church: I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins: And I look for the Resurrection of the dead: And the Life of the world to come. 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, now and evermore, Amen.
