Newsletter – 24 July 2016

The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)
9th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY-PROPER 12- Sunday 24th July

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

INTRODUCTION
Abraham pleaded with God for the lives of just people who did not deserve vengeance, hardly daring to do so. God granted his request because he listens to the desires of our hearts. Jesus urges us to ask with confidence, knowing God loves us.

THE COLLECT
Almighty God, who sent your Holy Spirit to be the life and light of your Church: Open our hearts to the riches of your grace, that we may bring forth the fruit of the Spirit in love and joy and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

THE READINGS ( Page 998/1000)
First Reading Genesis 18:20-23
God can be challenged to account for himself, even by us. God wants a thorough-going relationship with us in which demands can be made on both sides.

Second Reading Colossians 2:6-15
Christ is the basis of our life. He alone knows us, forgives us and heals us. We need no exterior signs, just the deeply held belief that he is our all in all.

Gospel St. Luke 11:1-13
If friends respond to our cry for help, how much more so will our heavenly Father come to our aid and the Lord’s Prayer perfectly expresses all our needs.

POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Holy Father, who gathered us here around the table of your Son to share this meal with the whole household of God: In that new world where you reveal the fullness of your peace, gather people of every race and language to share in the eternal banquet of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Psalm 138 (Trevone only)
1 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart; ¨ before the gods will I sing praise to you.
2 I will bow down towards your holy temple and praise your name, because of your love and faithfulness; ¨ for you have glorified your name and your word above all things.
3 In the day that I called to you, you answered me; ¨ you put new strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord, ¨ for they have heard the words of your mouth.
5 They shall sing of the ways of the Lord, ¨ that great is the glory of the Lord.
6 Though the Lord be high, he watches over the lowly; ¨ as for the proud, he regards them from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you will preserve me; ¨ you will stretch forth your hand against the fury of my enemies; your right hand will save me.
8 The Lord shall make good his purpose for me; ¨ your loving-kindness, O Lord, endures forever; forsake not the work of your hands.
