Noonday Prayer and Meditation

May 7, 2020

Welcome to Christ Cathedral

“We meet people where they are, serve ALL, and live together in Christ’s love.”
An Order of Service
for Noonday

Officiant O God, make speed to save us.
People O Lord, make haste to help us.
Officiant and People
Glory to the holy and undivided Trinity, one God: as
it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia.
All say

Alleluia.
Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us;
therefore let us keep the feast,
Not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil,
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.
Christ being raised from the dead will never die again;
death no longer has dominion over him.
The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all;
but the life he lives, he lives to God. So also consider yourselves dead to sin,
and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.
Christ has been raised from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by a man came death,
by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die,
so in Christ shall all be made alive. Alleluia.

The following Psalms are said

Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16

In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
Incline your ear to me;
make haste to deliver me.
Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe,
for you are my crag and my stronghold;
for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me.
Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me,
For you are my tower of strength.
Into your hands I commend my spirit,
for you have redeemed me,
O Lord, O God of truth.
My times are in your hands;
rescue me from the hand of my enemies,
and from those who persecute me.
Make your face to shine upon your servant,
and in your loving-kindness save me.

Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the hills;
From where is my help to come?
My help comes from the Lord,
The maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved
And he who watches over you will not fall asleep.
Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep;
The Lord himself watches over you;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand,
So that the sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
It is he who shall keep you safe.
The Lord shall watch over your going out and your coming in,
From this time forth for evermore.

At the end of the Psalms is said

Glory to the holy and undivided Trinity, one God: as
it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

A Reading from Genesis (12:1-3)
Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

People Thanks be to God.

Officiant and People
Our loving God in heaven,
holy is your Name,
may your reign come,

as we forgive those
who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil
