Tuesday Evening Prayer
RHYTHMS of Remembering

Blessed be the Word made flesh, and born of Mary.

When the fullness of time had come, O God,
you sent your Son, born of a woman,
born under the law,
to redeem those who were under the law,
so that we might receive adoption
as your children. Galatians 4.4 –5 jw

Blessed be the Word made flesh, and born of Mary.

You are my strong support, O God, and my hope from my
by you I have been carried from the womb;

since my mother gave birth to me you have been my shelter,
and to you I sing my song of praise for ever.

I have been as it were a marvel to many,
and you are my strong helper.

Let my mouth be filled with your praise
so that I sing of your glory,
and of your splendour all day long. Psalm 71.5 – 8 jw

Lord Jesus Christ,
our hearts are narrow: open them wide;
our minds are lazy: stir them up;
our lives are little: grow them up in your service,
that in you we may find the true splendour of our
human nature.

And the Word became flesh and dwelt in our midst; and we looked upon his glory, the glory of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth. And from his fullness we have all received grace upon grace; whereas the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God: God’s Son, whose being was in the Father’s bosom, he it is who has made God known.
John 1.14, 16 –18 jw

Jesus our brother, in your coming
God’s dwelling place is among humankind.
May all of us your disciples
answer your call to search out and cherish
that which is of God in every human being,
that God may be honoured in love and service
always and everywhere.

Enrich my heart, mouth, hands in me,
with faith, with hope, with charity;
that I may run, rise, rest with thee. George Herbert
