The Prayers of the People:

Leader:    With all our hearts and minds let us offer to God our prayers.

People:   Blessed are you, O Lord our God.

Leader:    For the Church throughout the world; in our own Diocese of Ottawa, for the parishes of St. Augustine, Beachburg; St. Paul’s, Cobden; St. Mary’s, Westmeath; St. Patrick’s, Stafford; St. Stephen’s, Micksburg; and St. Thomas, Rankin.  For the visitors, volunteers and staff of The Well/La Source. In our companion diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for Christ Episcopal Church, Nazareth; Al  Ahli Hospital, Gaza; and the East Jerusalem YMCA.   For John our Bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.

People:   For Christians everywhere, striving to bear witness to God’s love for the world.

Leader:    God, you brought life out of death through the Red Sea waters and through the death and resurrection of our Lord.

People:   Call all the peoples of the world out of futile living and believ­ing that we all may hope in your dominion of justice and peace.

Leader:    Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names).  We remember those who have died, especially (insert names). Holy One, in Jesus you touched the troubled and unclean. Reach out and touch all who are troubled, and heal our dis-eases.

People:   Let your power cleanse us that we may sing praises to you alone.

Leader:    Gracious Lord, your mercy encompasses all creation.

People:   Fill us with the hunger that makes us dependent on you alone. May our lives extend your healing hand to all the world.

Leader:    Lord, from creation to covenant and from prophets to present day, you have judged those who seek consolation in their pos­sessions.

People:   Bless us with the poverty which opens us to your dominion. Call us away from a life which hoards and squand­ers your creation.

Leader:    Abba God, you came to us little and vulnerable. Make us see and become one with the poor that we may share in your dominion.

People:   Make us see and become one with the hungry that we may find our satisfaction in serving others.  May our laughter grow out of trust that you are indeed  Lord of heaven and earth. May we leap for joy in you, through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
