Collect of the Day

Almighty God,
you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless
until they find their rest in you.
May we find peace in your service,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
When we fix our eyes on Jesus our lives will reflect his nature.

Leader: God is close to us as we pray. He is attentive to us now. Let us pray for St. Thomas the Apostle, Ottawa, The Venerable Peter Crosby. The Reverend Tim Kehoe, St. Thomas, Woodlawn. St. George’s, Fitzroy Harbour, The Reverend John Stopa. We pray for the 42nd meeting of the General Synod that began on July 10th and ends July 16th. We pray for Fred, 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: Lord, whenever you weep over our harshness, make your tears melt our hearts of stone. Whenever you grieve over our double standards, shock us into honesty again. Make us receptive to your teaching, willing to take your risks and eager to run with our eyes fixed on Jesus. (Silence)

Leader: Lead us Lord:

People: to walk in your ways.

Leader: Whenever the news overwhelms us, nudge us to fervent prayer. Wherever leaders meet to negotiate peace, be present at the conference table. Breathe your values into our thinking, tear down the divisive barriers and renew us to lead the world into loving. (Silence)

Leader: Lead us Lord:

People: to walk in your ways.

Leader: Whenever tempers are frayed and patience is wearing thin, give us space to collect ourselves and try again. Whenever the demands of family and friends remind us of our limitations, minister graciously through our weakness and teach us the humility of apologizing. (Silence)

Leader: Lead us Lord:

People: to walk in your ways.

Leader: Whenever people are enveloped by pain or desolate grief or total exhaustion, bring refreshment and peace, tranquility and hope. Wherever the grip of the past prevents free movement into the future, bring release and healing. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence).

Leader: Lead us Lord:

People: to walk in your ways.

Leader: Whenever the dying are fearful and distressed, give comfort and reassurance on that last journey. Bless those who care for them and those who mourn their going. In mercy receive the dead into the life of your heaven, and prepare us through our lives now for eternity. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence).

Leader: Lead us Lord:

People: to walk in your ways.

Leader: Holy God, we love the beauty and goodness of your nature, and thank you for the gift of your Spirit to guide us to walk in your ways.

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

The Communion

Anthem: Da pacem Domine by Charles Gounod

Da pacem, Domine in diebus nostris quia non est alius qui pugnet pro nobis nisi tu Deus noster.

Give peace in our time O Lord. Because there is none other that fighteth for us, but only thou, O God.

Prayer after Communion        

Gracious God, lover of all,

by this sacrament

you make us one family in Christ your Son,

one in the sharing of his body and blood,

one in the communion of his Spirit.

Help us to grow in love for one another

and come to the full maturity of the Body of Christ.

We ask this in his name. Amen.
