22 November 2015


Prayers developed from the daily readings 

Sunday 22 November 2015 
Morning Prayer   

Psalm 93

God’s greatness is praised – more powerful than floods, more powerful than the seas. God’s commandments are sure and God lives in holiness.

Philippians 2: 1 - 11

Paul says that if the Philippians have received encouragement from being united with Christ, comfort from the love of Jesus, fellowship with the Holy Spirit, tenderness and compassion then be like that – live that out. Do nothing out of selfish ambition but for the service of others.

We should have the same attitude as Christ who did not seek to be equal with God but became a servant, became human, humbled himself and became obedient even to death on a cross. Therefore Christ is exulted by God so that at Jesus’s name every knee shall bow and everyone confess that Christ is Lord to the glory of God.

Collect for Morning Prayer

The Southern Ocean and the Australian Mainland
Head of the Bight SA L Osburn
Lord Holy and almighty God full of love, mercy and grace we thank you for your gift of Christ. We pray that our lives may be guided by his example. We ask that we may bring your comfort, love, fellowship and compassion to others in humility, so that we are among those whose lives confess Christ is Lord to your glory though Jesus Christ your Son our Lord and the power of your Holy Spirit in our hearts. Amen.

Evening Prayer

Daniel 7: 9 – 10 and 13 – 14

Daniel reports a vision he has of thrones being set in place and the Ancient One on a throne surrounded by light and flames with millions attending and serving.

Psalm 95: 1 – 7

Sing to God songs of praise for all things God has done for us. Be joyful. Make a noise. Worship and bow down before the one who made us.

John 12: 20 – 23

Some Greeks ask to talk with Jesus. Jesus tells them what is to come and through his death on the cross, the ruler of the world will be defeated; God will be glorified.

Collect for Evening Prayer

The Travellers' Cross
Eucla WA L Osburn
Oh God we thank you for all you have given us and done for us. We thank you that we are here, at this day and at this hour. May our lives be full of praise and joy so that we too may glorify you and bring others to do the same through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
