The Prayers of the People

Leader: Who can separate us from the love of God? What can separate us from the love of Christ?

People: Let our hearts now respond to such overwhelming love as we pray together in the Spirit.

Leader: For those named in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar we pray today for St. Stephen’s, Ottawa, and the Rev. Dr. Anne Quick. St. Matthias, Ottawa, and the Rev. John Wilker-Blakley. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for The Arab Evangelical Episcopal School, Ramallah, Palestine. 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 the clergy and people.


That God will renew the merciful covenant made with us in love, we pray to the Lord.

People: That the ministers of the gospel may be people of genuine conversion and prophetic voice, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: That the bread of life may be shared one day by all Christians at a common table of praise, we pray to the Lord.

People: For the poor and oppressed of our world, and for governments called to assist them in their need, 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 the sick and the suffering in our world, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: For those preparing for baptism, that they may hear the invita­tion of God to come to the waters of regeneration and there find abundant life, we pray to the Lord.

People: For the newly wedded couples in our community, for expectant parents, and for those who nurture children, that all may be fed at the breasts of a loving God and find strength in lives of service, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Let us be mindful of all who have died.

People: That they may come into the fullness of life, united with God in the commu­nion of the faithful, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: O God, your loving care for us calls for our gratitude. Multiply once again your abundant mercy toward us; renew your covenant with us; and let our hearts overflow with godly love for others.
