Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Prayers of the People

Leader:    For the Church throughout the world, especially The Anglican Church of Tanzania; in our own Diocese, we pray for the parishes of All Saints’, Petawawa, and St. George’s, Alice; the community of the St. George’s Military Chapel, Petawawa; and for participants in the Diocesan Clergy Conference.  For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.  Our God wraps us in love and embraces us with mercy. There is nothing we need to hide. Let us bring our needs and the needs of the whole human family into God’s loving care.

People: That the leaders of the church will be, like Moses, one with their people and outspoken on their behalf, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    That the church will search for the lost of this world, the homeless, the addicted, the uneducated, the ill, the rejected, and that we will welcome them into our household, we pray to the Lord.

People:   That all who are far from home will live in safety, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    For all who are alienated from us and who stay away from this table, that they may return home, and that we may be watch­ing to greet them, we pray to the Lord.

People:   That peace and forgiveness will mark our lives together as fami­lies, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    We pray for those who are sick or suffering (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  We pray for the sick, the aged, and the lonely.

People:   We pray for all who are in need. For any who cannot be with us today, that they may know our kindness and God’s mercy, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    We remember those who have died, especially (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (silence). God of promises, you have brought us a long way and have kept us safe in our journey to you.

People:   Hear us now, and answer our prayers with delight. Teach us to run to you for all we need. We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Lord. Amen.
