Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

July 17, 2011

9:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist

Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Our God, the almighty one, counts the hairs of our head.

People: Let us come before God in confidence, praying for all the world.

Leader: In the Diocese of Ottawa, we pray today for St. John the Evangelist, Lancaster, St. Michael and All Angels, Maxville, and St. Vincent and Elisabeth Bruyere Hospitals and Extended Care Chaplains. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea and Paul our Priests, for all the clergy and people.  We thank you this day for the value you have placed upon us by giving us Christ our Savior.

People: Empower us to acknowledge this gift in lives of service, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you have answered our fears with love.

People: Give to us the faith to go where others dare not to proclaim the vastness of your love, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you are concerned with the frailty of our living.  You know our addictions, our failures, our doubts, and our escapes.

People: Grant us the whole­ness we seek, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you aid those who work for justice and peace by giving them courage, vision, and strength.

People: Enlist all people in the struggle for human dignity, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, O God, that you favour the poor, the meek, the oppressed, the homeless, and the hungry.

People: Make your compas­sion contagious that the rich might share with the poor, and the strong befriend the weak, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, O God, that you know the dangers that lurk among us. We pray for those whom you have called to guard and protect your entire creation, those who work the land, who police the streets, who defend the nations.

People: Strengthen them for their difficult tasks, we pray to you O Lord.

Leader: We thank you, O God, that you refresh us with times of leisure and recreation.

People: Renew us that we might further appreciate you, each other, and all that you have made, we pray to you O 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. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Give them eternal rest.

People: We thank you, God in Christ Jesus, that you are always more willing to listen than we are to pray. Hear the petitions of this assembly; hear the prayers spoken in our hearts; for we pray through your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
