God of truth, help us to keep your law of love

Lord of love:

let only your will be done.

 

In your prayers this week could you pray for our five overseas partner Dioceses especially today the Diocese of Dornakal and for Churches Together, St. Cyr’s, Stinchcombe.

 

Post Communion

Eternal Father, we thank you for nourishing us
with these heavenly gifts: may our communion strengthen us in faith, build us up in hope, and make us grow in love; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

First Reading – Psalm 138

 

1-3 Thank you! Everything in me says “Thank you!”  Angels listen as I sing my thanks.
I kneel in worship facing your holy temple and say it again: “Thank you!”  Thank you for your love, thank you for your faithfulness; Most holy is your name, most holy is your Word.  The moment I called out, you stepped in; you made my life large with strength.

4-6 When they hear what you have to say, God,
all earth’s kings will say “Thank you.”  They’ll sing of what you’ve done: “How great the glory of God!”  And here’s why: God, high above, sees far below; no matter the distance, he knows everything about us.

7-8 When I walk into the thick of trouble, keep me alive in the angry turmoil.  With one hand

strike my foes, With your other hand save me.
Finish what you started in me, God.
Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now.

 

 

Lord of all hopefulness

 

Lord of all hopefulness,

Lord of all joy,

whose trust, ever childlike,

no cares could destroy,

be there at our waking,

and give us, we pray,

your bliss in our hearts, Lord,

at the break of the day.

 

Lord of all eagerness,

Lord of all faith,

whose strong hands were skilled

at the plane and the lathe,

be there at our labours,

and give us, we pray,

your strength in our hearts, Lord,

at the noon of the day.

 

Lord of all kindliness,

Lord of all grace,

your hands swift to welcome,

your arms to embrace,

be there at our homing,

and give us, we pray,

your love in our hearts, Lord,

at the eve of the day.

 

Lord of all gentleness,

Lord of all calm,

whose voice is contentment,

whose presence is balm,

be there at our sleeping,

and give us, we pray,

your peace in our hearts, Lord,

at the end of the day.

Gospel Reading – Mark 3 v20-35

20 and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat.  21 When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, “He has gone out of his mind.”  22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out demons.” 23 And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan?  24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.  26 And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come.  27 But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his property without first tying up the strong man; then indeed the house can be plundered.  28 “Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter; 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”— 30 for they had said, “He has an unclean spirit.”  31 Then his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside, they sent to him and called him.  32 A crowd was sitting around him; and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers and sisters are outside, asking for you.”  33 And he replied, “Who are my mother and my brothers?”  34 And looking at those who sat around him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers!  35 Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”

 

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God

Seek ye first the kingdom of God,

and his righteousness,

and all these things shall be added

unto you;

allelu, alleluia.

 

Alleluia, alleluia,

alleluia, allelu, alleluia.

 

You shall not live by bread alone,

but by ev’ry word

that proceeds from the mouth of God;

allelu, alleluia.

 

Ask and it shall be given unto you,

seek and ye shall find;

knock, and it shall be opened unto you;

allelu, alleluia.
