MATINS - Midnight Prayer


Psalm 125

  1. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion:
    which cannot be shaken but stands forever.
  2. As the hills enfold Jerusalem:
    so you enfold your people O Lord, now and forever.
  3. The sceptre of the wicked shall not hold sway
    over land assigned to the just:
    lest the just should put out their hand to do evil.
  4. Do good O Lord to those who are good:
    to those who are upright in heart.
  5. As for those who turn aside into crooked ways,
    the Lord shall lead them away with evil-doers:
    but upon Israel there shall be peace.


Gracious and loving God,
your Son Jesus Christ
prepared himself by vigil and prayer
for his work and witness;
strengthen us in heart and mind
by this remembrance of your grace
to bear witness to your great love
and to work for your kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.


Thank Him for 3 things that happened today (Good or Not!)


Our Father, hallowed be your name,
on earth as in heaven.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself,
and God our Father,
who loved us and graciously gave us
unfailing encouragement and good hope,
comfort our hearts
and establish them
in every good word and deed.

The Blessing

May Christ the King give us his blessing of peace.
