For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest, for all clergy and people.

People: For the Christian churches throughout the world, that together we may harvest compassion in an abundance of mercy, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: That leaders of government refuse to worship Mars, the god of war, but rather attend to Christ’s call of peace, we pray to the Lord.

People: For farmers, harvesters, and migrant workers, and for an end of injustice toward those who work the land, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: That people of the earth may honor and respect the natural resources of the planet, and for an end to the consumerism that encourages ravage, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence), we pray to you O Lord.

People: For all the sick, and for all the oppressed, that the reign of God will hold sway in all human life, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Blessed and praised are you, O God, for the word of your mouth. In your mercy, listen to all who call to you in faith.
