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.

We Respond to God’s Word

The Prayers of the People

Leader:    God is just, God is one. But we are often fragmented and consumed by many wants. Let us gather our needs now and offer them confidently and simply to God.  For the leaders of the world powers, that they may be just and honourable in their dealings with one another, we pray to the Lord.

People:   For peace, a reduction of arms, and an end to war and terror­ism, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    For the Church throughout the world, particularly for The Anglican Church in Uganda; in our own Diocese, for the parishes of St. John’s, March; St. Paul’s, Dunrobin; St. Mary’s, North March; and for all parish secretaries and administrators. 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.  That the church and its leaders may be ingenious and tireless in preaching the good news, we pray to the Lord.

People:   That all Christians may hold their goods and money lightly and use them for the sake of God’s dominion, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    That all elected officials may respond to the needs of their community and serve the common good, we pray to the Lord.

People:   That employees and employers may act honestly in their workplaces and treat one another with dignity, we pray to the Lord.

Leader:    For the poor, the hungry, the homeless, and the jobless, we pray to the Lord.

People:   That the wealthy and those with no material want may use their bounty in keeping with their calling, 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 remember those who have died, especially (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (silence).  We pray for all who are in need. 

People:   Just God, one God, we live in this world and look for the world to come. Teach us what to ask for: give us all we need. Make us life givers with you who build your dominion here, in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
