The Prayers of the People

Leader: God our Saviour works revolutions in the earth and turns the world upside down. Let us proclaim the greatness of the Lord and rejoice in our God, praying to the holy and mighty one, for the Church throughout the world. In our Diocese we pray today for St. Paul’s, Shawville, Holy Trinity, Radford, and St. Mary’s, Russell.  In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for St. George’s School, Jerusalem.  For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest and for all the clergy and people.

People: For the God-fearing, that God look with favour on them from generation to generation.

 Leader: For justice in all the earth,

 People: that with a mighty arm God scatter the proud, cast down the haughty, and lift up the lowly.

Leader: For the hungry, that they may be fed.

People: For those who hunger after righteousness, that they may be filled with good things.

Leader: For the just distribution of the wealth of the world,

People: that none go hungry while others are surfeited.

Leader: For the Jews, the descendents of Abraham,

People: that they be faithful to their ancient covenant with God and that we with them inherit the promises of God.

Leader: We pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and those we name silently or aloud (pause).  We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), and those we name silently or aloud (pause).  The salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come.

People: We proclaim the greatness of the Lord, and we rejoice in God our Saviour, praising God in his Son our Lord, now and forever.  Amen.
