READING Romans 1:1-2, 7

Greetings from Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart
to proclaim the gospel of God which he promised long ago through his prophets, as
the holy Scriptures record—the gospel concerning his Son—to all in Rome,
beloved of God and called to holiness, grace and peace from God our Father and
the Lord Jesus Christ.

throughout the whole world.
INTERCESSIONS

Leader: My brothers and sisters, we build on the foundation of the apostles.


Let us pray to our almighty Father for his holy people and say:

Be mindful of your Church, O Lord.

1. Father, you wanted your Son to be seen first by the apostles after the
resurrection from the dead, we ask you to make us his witnesses to the
farthest corners of the world.

2. You sent your Son to preach your good news to the poor, help us to preach
this Gospel to every creature.

3. You sent your Son to sow the seed of unending life, grant that we who work
at sowing the seed may share the joy of the harvest.

4. You sent your Son to reconcile all to you through his blood, help us all to
work toward achieving this reconciliation.

5. Your Son sits at your right hand in heaven, let the dead enter your kingdom
of joy.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Leader: Remember us, Lord, when you come into your kingdom and teach us
to pray:

Our Father, who art in heaven,


hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
CONCLUDING PRAYER

Leader: O God, who taught the whole world


through the preaching of the blessed Apostle Paul,
draw us, we pray, nearer to you
through the example of him whose conversion we celebrate today,
and so make us witnesses to your truth in the world.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

All: Amen.

DISMISSAL

If a priest or deacon presides, he dismisses the people:

Priest: The Lord be with you.


All: And with your spirit.

Priest: May almighty God bless you,


the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

All: Amen.

Then he adds:

Priest: Go in peace.
All: Thanks be to God.

In the absence of a priest or deacon and in individual recitation, Evening Prayer


concludes:

Leader: May the Lord + bless us,


protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.

All: Amen.
