The Collect of the Day

Unite us, O God,

in acknowledging Jesus as the Christ.

Give us strength to take up his cross

and courage to lose our lives for his sake;

for we ask this in his name,

who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God for ever and ever. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word


The Nicene Creed                                                                           page 188

Prayers of the People (adapted from Susan Sayers)—Loving obedience to God is shown by Jesus to be a quality rich in courage and wisdom, a quality to be highly respected.

Leader: Children of our Heavenly Parent, responding to God’s call, let us bring to God our needs and concerns.

People: That we may all learn to think God’s way and desire to do God’s will above everything else; that we may be ready to suffer if necessary, and put ourselves out, and do that cheerfully, considering it a privilege.

Leader: In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray today for All Saints, Petawawa. For St. George’s, Alice, and the Rev. Cathy Davis. For the community of the St. George’s Military Chapel, Petawawa. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. John the Baptist Episcopal School for the Integration of the Blind, Irbid, Jordan. We pray John our bishop, and for Arran our priest. We pray for all clergy and people. (Silence)

Leader: In the spirit of obedience:

People: we ask your guidance.

Leader: That craving to be most powerful may be transformed into a yearning for mutual respect and harmony; that wealth may not shout louder than right, and the whisper of truth may be heard above the clamour of expediency. (Silence)

Leader: In the spirit of obedience:

People: we ask your guidance.

Leader: That within our homes and places of work we may practice self-discipline in all that we say, and in the way it is said, using our mouths to speak wisely and positively with love in both hearts and voices. (Silence)

Leader: In the spirit of obedience:

People: we ask your guidance.

Leader: That those whose bodies or spirits are heavy with suffering may be given courage and hope, ease from the pain, and healing to wholeness. That we may know how best to help them. We pray especially for (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (Silence)

Leader: In the spirit of obedience:

People: we ask your guidance.

Leader: That those who have died may raise to eternal life, and that we may so live on earth that we are all prepared for meeting you face to face in heaven. We pray especially for (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: In the spirit of obedience:

People: we ask your guidance.

Leader: That, as we rejoice in the perfect love and obedience of Jesus, we may find his life transforming ours.

Leader: Merciful God,

People: accept these prayers in the name of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer over the Gifts

Blessed are you, O God,

maker of all things.

Through your goodness

you have blessed us

with these gifts:

our selves, our time,

and our possessions.

Use us, and what we have gathered,

in feeding the world with your love,

through the one

who gave himself for us,

Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord.

The Communion

Anthem: Lead Me Lord – Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Lead me, Lord, lead me in thy righteousness, make thy way plain before my face. For it is thou, Lord, only, that makest me dwell in safety.

Prayer after Communion

God of abundance,

with this bread of life

and cup of salvation

you have united us with Christ,

making us one with all your people.

Now send us forth

in the power of your Spirit,

so that we may proclaim

your redeeming love to the world

and continue forever

in the risen life of Jesus Christ,

our Lord. Amen.
