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 28. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 Unto Thee will I cry, O Lord my rock; be not silent to me, lest, if Thou be silent, I become like them that go down into the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry unto Thee, when I lift up my hands toward the oracle of Thy sanctuary.
3 Draw me not away with the wicked and with the workers of iniquity, who speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts.
4 Give to them according to their deeds and according to the wickedness of their endeavours; give to them according to the work of their hands; render to them their deserts.
5 Because they regard not the works of the Lord, nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them and not build them up.
6 Blessed be the Lord, because He hath heard the voice of my supplications!
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth, and with my song will I praise Him.
8 The Lord is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed.
9 Save the people, and bless Thine inheritance; feed them also, and lift them up forever.
O eternal God and Father,
you are not the God of the dead but of the living,
and all who put their trust in you,
who rest in their chambers under the earth,
live in you.
Be merciful to us, dear Father,
do not let us be afraid of the power and sting of death,
but keep us in the true faith in your dear Son,
who is the way, the truth, and the life.
Uphold us with your Holy Spirit, and give us a clear conscience,
that we may live our Christian lives, and finally fall asleep in peace and joy
when we leave this valley of tears, and rest in peace until you open our graves
and awaken us with the sound of the last trumpet; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
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.
