Daily Devotions – At the Close of Day (p. 140)

•January 6, 2018 • Leave a Comment

The Marin Episcopal Youth Group prays through the Book of Common Prayer’s “Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families.” In this video (which contains pics of MEYG in 2015 – 2017), we pray the “At the Close of Day” prayer on page 140. The hope is that viewers of the video read and pray along with us.

At the Close of Day

Psalm 134

Behold now, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, *

you that stand by night in the house of the LORD.

Lift up your hands in the holy place and bless the LORD; *

the LORD who made heaven and earth bless you out of Zion.

A Reading

Lord, you are in the midst of us and we are called by your Name: Do not forsake us, O Lord our God. Jeremiah 14:9,22

The following may be said

Lord, you now have set your servant free * to go in peace as you have promised; For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, * whom you have prepared for all the world to see; A Light to enlighten the nations, * and the glory of your people Israel.

Prayers for ourselves and others may follow. It is appropriate that prayers of thanksgiving for the blessings of the day, and penitence for our sins, be included.

The Lord’s Prayer

The Collect

Visit this place, O Lord, and drive far from it all snares of the enemy; let your holy angels dwell with us to preserve us in peace; and let your blessing be upon us always; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, bless us and keep us. Amen.

Daily Devotions – In the Early Evening (BCP p. 139)

•January 6, 2018 • Leave a Comment

The Marin Episcopal Youth Group prays through the Book of Common Prayer’s “Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families.” In this video (which contains pics of MEYG in 2015 – 2017), we pray the “In the Early Evening” prayer on page 139. The hope is that viewers of the video read and pray along with us.

In the Early Evening

This devotion my be used before or after the evening meal.

The Order of Worship for the Evening, page 109, may be used instead.

O gracious light,

pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,

O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,

and our eyes behold the vesper light,

we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,

O Son of God, O Giver of Life,

and to be glorified through all the worlds.

A Reading

It is not ourselves that we proclaim; we proclaim Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants, for Jesus’ sake. For the same God who said, “Out of darkness let light shine,” has caused his light to shine within us, to give the light of revelation–the revelation of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:5-6

Prayers may be offered for ourselves and others.

The Lord’s Prayer

The Collect

Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past; be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope, that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake of your love. Amen.

Daily Devotions – At Noon (BCP p. 138)

•January 6, 2018 • Leave a Comment

The Marin Episcopal Youth Group prays through the Book of Common Prayer’s “Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families.” In this video (which contains pics of MEYG in 2012 – 2016), we sing a song inspired by the “At Noon” prayer on page 138. The hope is that viewers of the video read and pray along with us.

At Noon

From Psalm 113

Give praise, you servants of the LORD; *

praise the Name of the LORD.

Let the Name of the LORD be blessed, *

from this time forth for evermore.

From the rising of the sun to its going down *

let the Name of the LORD be praised.

The LORD is high above all nations, *

and his glory above the heavens.

A Reading

O God, you will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are fixed on you; for in returning and rest we shall be saved; in quietness and trust shall be our strength.

Isaiah 26:3; 30:15

Prayers may be offered for ourselves and others.

The Lord’s Prayer

The Collect

Blessed Savior, at this hour you hung upon the cross, stretching out your loving arms: Grant that all the peoples of the earth may look to you and be saved; for your mercies’ sake. Amen.

or this

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles, “Peace I give to you; my own peace I leave with you:” Regard not our sins, but the faith of your Church, and give to us the peace and unity of that heavenly City, where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, now and for ever. Amen.

The Marin Episcopal Youth Group prays through the Book of Common Prayer’s “Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families.” In this video (which contains pics of MEYG in 2012 – 2014), we pray the “In the Morning” prayer on page 137. The hope is that viewers of the video read and pray along with us.

In the Morning

From Psalm 51

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 for ever. Amen.

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 may be used; the Apostles’ Creed may be said. Prayers may be offered for ourselves and others.

The Lord’s Prayer

The Collect

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.

Otis’s Reflection for the Marin Interfaith Thanksgiving Eve Service

Good evening, it’s a pleasure to be here tonight. The thing that has stuck with me the most from the wellness gatherings is the moments of silence we share together. There is a certain understanding, an acceptance, a peace in those moments that wash away the chaos of our everyday lives. In those moments, I’m more grateful than anytime else. Thank you for listening to me, and for being here.
