Lectionary 27

L            Refrain from anger, leave rage alone; do not be provoked; it leads only to evil. Put your trust in the Lord and do good… (Psalm 37: 3a, 8) Let us confess our lack of trust in the Lord and the good we fail to do.

 Silence is kept for confession and refection

 L       Be still before the Lord

C       I will “take delight in the Lord and commit my way to God who grants me my heart’s desire.” (Psalm 37:5)

 L       Wait patiently before the Lord, (for) you have been called with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to (the) grace given to us in Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. (Psalm 37:7; 1 Timothy 2:8, 10)

Proper 20 C

L         “…I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity.” (1 Timothy 2:1, 2) Let us confess our reluctance to pray for all people.
Silence is kept for confession and reflection
L         Praise the Lord  
C        The Lord takes up the weak out |of the dust and lifts up the poor from the ashes, enthroning them with the rulers of the people. Let the name of the Lord be blessed, from this time forth forevermore.

L         “God our Savior, desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself a ransom for all…” 1 Timothy 2:3-6
