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

Leader:    That we may see God’s presence in the lives of even the enemy, let us offer to God the needs of the whole world.

People:   Living God, you spoke to your people of old.

Leader:    Give to your church ears to hear your voice speaking in our day, even through those we name as enemy.

People:   Lord, for the nations of the world we pray. Let not anger con­sume us.

Leader:    Take away from us false virtue, and break down all dividing walls of hostility.

People:   Lord, in Jesus you called us to sacrificial love.

Leader:    Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names).  We remember those who have died, especially (insert names). Enable us to serve all those in need, the poor, the homeless, the sick, and the dying.

People:   Lord, through the hardships of the Hebrew leaders you pre­served the life of your people. Comfort all those in distress.

Leader:    Lord, in Jesus you have given us the first fruit of your domin­ion.

People:   Plant your life-giving Spirit in us and in our land, that we may bring forth justice and peace.

Leader:    Lord, who formed humanity of the dust of the earth, reform us into the likeness of your Christ.

People:   May your mercy pour into our laps. May we see ourselves as one with those we accuse and so know the joy of forgiveness given and received, through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
