A Service
of Midday Prayer              Good Afternoon,

                                Haere-mai!


                                 Wednesday, May 08, 2013
Persons struggling with violence, injustice, pain and
             suffering call for our help.
 We respond with understanding,
  forgiveness and compassion.
May the tears of young and old be our every waking
                     concern.
It is God who made us, and to God
 we belong; we are God's people.
 We are the hands and feet of Jesus the Christ to
  bring forth the reconciling spirit of God's love.


Help us to offer the healing and hope
in our homes, with our friends, in our
    communities and in the world
   We are called to actions that lead to clean air and
water, affordable homes, health care and education for
 all, the opportunity to work for a living wage and new
       attitudes that build communities founded on
                reconciliation and healing.


 We are called to be the peace we seek
 in our own lives through acts of love
              and justice
 Together, with God’s help, forgiveness, healing and
       reconciliation can transform the world.

                      So be it
THOU, WHOSE ALMIGHTY
       WORD
Thou, Whose almighty Word
 Chaos and darkness heard,
   And took their flight;
 Hear us, we humbly pray,
And, where the Gospel’s day
 Sheds not its glorious ray,
     Let there be light!
  Spirit of truth and love,
  Life giving, holy Dove,
  Speed forth Thy flight;
 Move on the water’s face
 Bearing the lamp of grace,
And, in earth’s darkest place,
     Let there be light!
   Blessèd and holy Three,
       Glorious Trinity,
     Wisdom, love, might!
  Boundless as ocean’s tide,
    Rolling in fullest pride,
Through the world far and wide,
      Let there be light!
Please Be Seated
Bible Reading
     Isaiah 2: 1-6
 This is the message that I was given about Judah and
                          Jerusalem:
In the future, the mountain with the LORD's temple will
                  be the highest of all.
 It will reach above the hills; every nation will rush to it.
     Many people will come and say, "Let's go to the
   mountain of the LORD God of Jacob and worship in
                        his temple."
 The LORD will teach us his Law from Jerusalem, and
   we will obey him. He will settle arguments between
                           nations.
    They will pound their swords and their spears into
 rakes and shovels; they will never make war or attack
                        one another.
    People of Israel, let's live by the light of the LORD.
Let Us Pray . . . . . .
Gracious God; you have commanded us to love our enemies.
  You yourself gave your life for those who were motivated
                         by hatred.

  Our Father, in heaven, hallowed be
             your name....

  You have watched humanity fight and scrap. You have
    watched with sadness as your creation is hoarded and
 divided for spoil under the guise of dominion. Help us seek
 your will in our lives. Make us your ambassadors as well as
                         your disciples.

   Your Kingdom come, your Will be
     done, on earth as in heaven....
You sent your only Son so that your people; All your people, might
 truly know your love and your peace. In a time of war, our hearts
need your assurance and your presence confirmed. May our leaders
           be guided with your wisdom and compassion.
Give us today our daily bread, and forgive us
 our sins as we forgive those who sin against
                     us...

It is so easy to reap a harvest of anger and revenge. Our hearts so
  easily fill with rage and discord. Forgive us our anger and grant us
   hearts of renewing peace. Help us be mirrors of your life even in
                            times of discord.

 Lead us not into temptation but deliver us
                   from evil
We pray for a new chapter of peace to open. Before the
 momentum of hatred eclipses our strength to control it,
                 grant us peace within.

For the Kingdom, the power and the
  glory are your now and forever...
Create in us a clean heart and peaceful mind. This is the
  nature of your Kingdom; this is the basis of your power,
      and this is the joy of your Glory. Give us peace.

                        Amen
                 Dismissal
We dedicate ourselves to enabling peace with
       justice throughout the world.
We are many people, walking many
 different paths, seeking peace.
We give praise and gratitude for God's love that
          nurtures every community.
We search for justice for those who
       have waited so long.
We come together, as we share healing words
  of forgiveness and seek to live in peace.
 May peace prevail in our hearts
and among all people everywhere.
             Amen
JESUS CHRIST IS WAITING
  Jesus Christ is waiting
  Waiting in the streets
 No one is his neighbour
     All alone he eats
     Listen Lord Jesus
      I am lonely too
Make me friend or stranger
    Fit to wait on you.
  Jesus Christ is raging
  Raging in the streets
 Where injustice spirals
  And all hope retreats
    Listen Lord Jesus
     I am angry too
In the Kingdom’s causes
  Let me rage with you
 Jesus Christ is healing
  Healing in the streets
Curing those who suffer
Touching those He greets
    Listen Lord Jesus
     I have pity too
  Let my care be active
  Healing just like you.
 Jesus Christ is dancing
 Dancing in the streets
Where each sign of hatred
 His strong love defeats
    Listen Lord Jesus
    I feel triumph too
On suspicion’s graveyard
 Let me dance with you
    Jesus Christ is calling
     Calling in the streets
“Come and walk faith’s tightrope
    I will guide your feet”
      Listen Lord Jesus
     Let my fears be few
   Walk one step before me
      I will follow you.
