The Prayers of the People:

Leader: For the church and for all your creation, we pray to you, Lord God.  In our Diocese of Ottawa, we pray for the parishes of St. George’s, Fitzroy Harbour, St. Thomas’ Woodlawn, St. James, Carleton Place; for the visitors, volunteers and staff at The Ottawa Pastoral Centre; and in our companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we remember St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Shefa Amr, St. Luke’s Hospital, Nablus, and The Anglican School in Jerusalem.  For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.  Blessed are the poor in spirit; theirs is the kingdom of God. And so we pray:

People:   Unite the church and guide all its lead­ers; let us show the world the love of Jesus.

Leader:    Blessed are the pure in heart; they shall see God. And so we pray:

People:   Give your people the will and the courage to value your service above all lesser goods.

Leader:    Blessed are the peacemakers, God’s own children. And so we pray:

People:   Bring peace to the world, security to the nations, and safety to the cities.

Leader:    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. And so we pray:

People:   Remove from us preju­dice and injustice, and raise up among us those who will labour for the good of all whom you have made.

Leader:    Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. And so we pray:

People:   Be present with those who are sick, imprisoned, or in distress; make us quick to love and serve our neighbours.

Leader:    We remember before you all whom we love but see no more. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Rejoice and be glad, their reward is great in heaven. And so we pray:

People:   We remember all who have witnessed to your love with their lives; give us strength to testify to Christ before the rulers of our own day.

Leader:    Almighty God, you have taught us to do justice, love kindness, and practice humility before you;

People:   make our faith active in love, that your name may be praised and your people served throughout the earth, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
