Some thoughts on home worship for Passion Sunday

Jesus set his face to Jerusalem and tribulation, trial and crucifixion. Yet "the light shines in
the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it".

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
Collect of the Day

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us that what we do for the least of our brothers and
sisters we l also for you.
Give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all and Give up your
life for us,
But are alive today, and reign now and forevermore.

Read the Epistle from
Romans 8:6-11
and the Gospel (a bit long this one!) from
John 11:1-45

Offer some short prayers:

Lord, We pray for the Church at this time of uncertainty, especially for our own four
parishes of Bradley, Church Eaton, Derrington, and Haughton.
Pray for the housebound and for all who feel isolated and lonely.
Pray for your own families, especially those not able to visit you, or those you are not able
to visit.

Pray for our health services and for all who care for others.

Say the Lord's Prayer (perhaps when you wash your hands!)
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be your name,
your kingdom comes, you will be done on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever.

May your Spirit give us all a sense of calmness and peace, and the Blessing of the Lord
Jesus Christ we with you always.

Geoff Smith
