Almighty God,

We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
Lives that have shone with God’s love on earth are filled with joy as they see their Lord face to face.

Leader: Knowing our dependence on God in all things, let us pray to him now for St. Luke’s, Ottawa, The Reverend Victoria Scott. For Hospital and Nursing Home ministries throughout our Diocese. In our Companion Diocese, The Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. Luke’s Church, Marka, Jordan and for St John’s &

St. Luke’s Church, Haifa, Israel. We pray for Linda, our Primate, Anne, our Metropolitan, John, our Bishop, and Michael Bird, our assisting Bishop. For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: Glorious God, as we celebrate the lives of those Church members who have shone with the brightness of your love, we offer you ourselves and our lives in fresh commitment and conscious awareness of our need for you in this parish and as individual Christians. (Silence)

Leader: Just as I am:

People: I come.

Leader: Powerful God, may your kingdom of love and peace be established in this world and grow. We pray for both the influential and the ignored, both the popular and the disliked, both the ambitious and the vulnerable. Teach us all your ways and your values. (Silence)

Leader: Just as I am:

People: I come.

Leader: Loving God, we call to mind our families and friends, neighbors and colleagues, thanking you for all the loving care and forgiveness, and asking your light to shine in all areas of hurt and misunderstanding. (Silence)

Leader: Just as I am:

People: I come.

Leader: Healing God, we bring to you those whose lives are darkened by pain fear or weariness. Come to our aid; help us to bear what must be carried, and take from us all resentment and bitterness, replacing it with the abundance of peace. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Just as I am:

People: I come.

Leader: Eternal God, we thank you for all the saints, those recognized by the Church and those known only to a few, and to you. We praise you for their example and rejoice that they live in your heaven with every tear wiped away. In your mercy may all who have died in your friendship know your lasting peace. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence).

Leader: Just as I am:

People: I come.

Leader: Gracious God, you can take us as we are and transform us by your life in us. Clear our lives of all that is not of you, so that we let your goodness shine through the colours of our personalities and gifts you have given us.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Agnus Dei from Communion Service in E by Harold Darke                    

The Communion

Anthem: Ave Verum by Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Ave verum Corpus, natum ex Maria Virgine, vere passum, immolatum In cruce pro homine, Cujus latus perforatum unda fluxit sanguine: esto nobis praegustatum In mortis examine. O dulcis, O pie! O Jesu Fili Mariae.

Hail, real body, born of the Virgin Mary, who truly suffered, sacrificed on the cross for humankind, whose pierced side flowed with water and blood; be unto us the foretaste in the trial of death. O gentle, O holy one! O Jesu, Son of Mary.

Prayer after Communion

Heavenly Father,

bring to perfection within us

the communion we share in this sacrament.

May the unity we know this day

live in our community and family.

This we pray in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.
