Welcome to Friday Morning prayer from the Anglican ‘A prayer book for Australia’.
We proclaim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ:
GOD in his infinite mercy, forgives all sins, and through our baptism in the name of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, we are given a rebirth into new life, free from the burden of all sin. ALLELUIA
With faithfulness we respond to the good news:
We acknowledge Christ as our saviour and accept with gratitude, that we are forgiven for all wrong doings, past and present. To honour the gift of forgiveness, we release our burden of guilt and rise up to live in the glory of God forever more.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Blessed be God forever.
Let us Pray.
1
Through Christ let us offer up a sacrifice of praise to God,
the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. 
Hebrews 13.15
  
 
Glory to God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit: 
as in the beginning, so now, and for ever. Amen. 
  
 
2 The Opening Canticle, A Song of God’s Grace
We have complete freedom: to go into the most holy place by means of the death of Jesus. He opened for us a new way, a living way: through the curtain, through his own body. Since we have a great high priest set over the household of God: let us draw near with a sincere heart and a sure faith, With hearts that have been made clean from a guilty conscience: and bodies washed with pure water. 
Hebrews 10.19–22
  
 
3 The Opening Prayer
The night has passed and the day lies open before us; 
let us pray with one heart and mind. 
 
Silence may be kept.
As we rejoice in the gift of this new day, so may the light of your presence, O God, set our hearts on fire with love for you; now and for ever. 
Amen.

Psalm
 
5 At the end of the (last) pause there may follow
Holy God, through your beloved Son you reconciled all things to yourself, making peace by the blood of his cross: fill us and those for whom we pray with your peace and joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

7 The Canticle, Saviour of the World
Jesus, Saviour of the world, come to us in your mercy: we look to you to save and help us. By your cross and your life laid down, you set your people free: we look to you to save and help us. When they were ready to perish, you saved your disciples: we look to you to come to our help. In the greatness of your mercy, loose us from our chains: forgive the sins of all your people. Make yourself known as our saviour and mighty deliverer: save and help us that we may praise you. Come now and dwell with us, Lord Christ Jesus: hear our prayer and be with us always. And when you come in your glory: make us to be one with you 
and to share the life of your kingdom. 
  
 
8 The belief and principle is said
I believe in God,creator of heaven and earth,
whose love and merciful forgiveness
endures everlasting.
I believe in Christ the saviour,
whose example of love and compassion,
taught us a restored way to live,
in collaborative unity with all people.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
whose divine guidance brings
us together to be one with the Holy Trinity.
Amen.

Welcome to Sunday Morning prayer from the Anglican ‘A prayer book for Australia’.

7 The Canticle, The Song of Zechariah (Benedictus)
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel: who has come to his people and set them free. The Lord has raised up for us a mighty Saviour: born of the house of his servant David. Through the holy prophets, God promised of old: to save us from our enemies, from the hands of all who hate us, To show mercy to our forebears: and to remember his holy covenant. This was the oath God swore to our father Abraham: to set us free from the hands of our enemies, Free to worship him without fear: holy and righteous before him, all the days of our life. And you, child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High: for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way, To give his people knowledge of salvation: by the forgiveness of their sins. In the tender compassion of our God: the dawn from on high shall break upon us, To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death: and to guide our feet into the way of peace. 
Luke 1.68–79
  
 
8 The Apostles’ Creed may be said.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, 
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Welcome to Friday Evening prayer from the Anglican ‘A prayer book for Australia’.
We proclaim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ:
GOD in his infinite mercy, forgives all sins, and through our baptism in the name of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, we are given a rebirth into new life, free from the burden of all sin. ALLELUIA
With faithfulness we respond to the good news:
We acknowledge Christ as our saviour and accept with gratitude, that we are forgiven for all wrong doings, past and present. To honour the gift of forgiveness, we release our burden of guilt and rise up to live in the glory of God forever more.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Blessed be God forever.
Let us Pray.
 
1
Peace to those who are far off.
Peace to those who are near. 
Ephesians 2.17
  
 
Glory to God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit: 
as in the beginning, so now, and for ever. Amen. 
 
2 The Opening Canticle, The Lord’s Servant
The canticle of Isaiah 53.3–6
He was despised; he was rejected: a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief. As one from whom people hide their faces: he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Ours were the sufferings he bore: ours the torments he endured, While we thought he was being punished: struck by God and brought low. He was pierced for our sins: bruised for no fault but ours. His punishment has won our peace: and by his wounds we are healed. We had all strayed like sheep: all taking our own way; But the Lord laid on him: the guilt of us all. 
Isaiah 53.3–6

You are worthy, our Lord and God: to receive glory and honour and power. For you have created all things: and by your will they have their being. You are worthy, O Lamb, for you were slain: and by your blood you ransomed for God saints from every tribe and language and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests serving our God: and they will reign with you on earth. To the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb: be blessing and honour and glory and might, for ever and ever.
