The Church’s Bedtime Prayers

Night Prayer – or compline – “is based on the ancient office of compline and reflects the simplicity and themes of monastic bedside prayer. Night prayer invokes the presence of God, whose word and love accompany and sustain us through the darkness, enabling us to offer prayer for others as we ‘let go’ into sleep, and at the last, into death.  In Night Prayer, we prepare ourselves spiritually for the night” (From Eucharistic Prayers, Services of the Word, and Night Prayer: Supplementary to the Book of Alternative Services, p.46).

Below is an Order of Compline for Sunday and, below that, is the PDF for you if you would like to join in the singing, prayers, and responses:

Almighty God, you have given us this good land as our heritage.  May we prove ourselves a people mindful of your generosity and glad to do your will.  Bless our land with honest industry, truthful education, and an honourable way of life.  Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance; and from every evil course of action.  Make us who came from many nations with many different languages a united people.  Defend our liberties and give those whom we have entrusted with the authority of government the spirit of wisdom, that there may be justice and peace in our land.  When times are prosperous, let our hearts be thankful; and, in troubled times, do not let our trust in you fail.  We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

HAPPY CANADA DAY EVERYONE!

Evening Prayer Service for the Third Pentecost Ember Day (Mission)

Today we pray for God’s mission – the reason the Church exists. We ask God to use us as a sign, an instrument, and a foretaste of God’s kingdom in the world. Let us ask God to open our hearts and minds to discern the way in which we are to be participants and collaborators – drawing all things, on earth and in heaven, into relationship with God through Christ with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.

Ember Day traditions being reclaimed

The Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday after the Sunday of Pentecost are “Ember Days.”  Traditionally, these were days of solemn prayer kept by the church four times throughout the year. This practice went by the wayside but is being reclaimed because of the pastoral value. These days engage the church in deep prayer for its whole ministry. This first Ember Day service is for Peace.
