The Prayers of the People
Leader: God calls us to love one another. As a sign of that love, let us lift up our prayer to God for the needs of all people throughout the world.
People: We pray for the peace of the world, that our instruments of war may be transformed into instruments of peace, and that nations shall cease to learn war any more.
Leader: For the Church throughout the world, especially those parishes in Kimberley and Kuruman, South Africa; in our own diocese, for the parish of St. Matthew`s, Ottawa; for all archdeacons in the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, and for members of the Lay Readers Association. For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.
People: We pray for the church, that we may become more and more a means of grace and peace in the world.
Leader: We pray for all people of good will who seek to cast off the works of darkness, that we may be enlightened through our service of others in the name of Christ.
People: We pray for those who are assembled here today, that we may be clothed with the Lord Jesus Christ and go forth from this place to be Christ in the world.
Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence). We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence). We pray for all who are in need, that we may be alert to the presence of Christ in them and ready to reach out in love.
People: We pray for all who have asked for our prayers, that we may faithfully wait upon God with confidence in that love which sustains us in every moment of our lives.
Leader: We praise you, Lord our God, that you have called us to be your people and the instruments of your presence in the world.
People: Grant us grace to discern your will and the strength to do it, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

|On Wednesdays in Advent (December 1, 8, 15), Trinity is offering a special series: “AN INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN MEDITATION”. Retired family therapist Ron Dicks will lead us into an experience of this ancient tradition of contemplative prayer which seeks God in silence and stillness – beyond words, thoughts and images. Check your November Grapevine, or call the Church Office for more information (613-733-7536).|
