Today as we remember Pastor Alice Bassett-Jellema, who died on Nov 2, 2019, we will use the prayers she prepared for her beloved community to use throughout each day. May these be a comfort to you. We'll be posting at 7am, noon, 5pm and 9pm. You are welcome to pray as and when you are able. In the Morning Open my lips, O Lord* and my mouth shall proclaim your praise. Create in me a clean heart, O God,* and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence* and take not your holy Spirit from me. Give me the joy of your saving help again* and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit* as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen. From Psalm 51 A Reading Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3 A period of silence may follow. A hymn or canticle or the Apostles’ Creed may be said. Prayers may be offered for ourselves and others. The Lord’s Prayer Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought us in safety to this new day: Preserve us with your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all we do, direct us to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
