Collect of the Day

Gracious God,

Although we once were strangers,

You received us as friends

And draw us home to you.

Set your living bread before us,

So that we may be strengthened

To continue the work

Your Son has commissioned us to do. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word


Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)

To whom else could we go? You alone have the words of eternal life.
Leader: We have chosen to serve the Lord. Let us pray to him now for St. Bartholomew’s, Ottawa, The Rev. Canon David Clunie. For the members of the Property and Finance Committee and its subcommittees. For our Canon Theologian, The Rev. Dr. Canon John Gibaut. We pray for John, our bishop, Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: We pray for those whose faith is being challenged or undermined by inner doubts or outside influences. We pray for those who build up our faith and all who strive to proclaim the Gospel in language that people understand. (Silence)

Leader: Holy God, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: We pray for our torn and fragmented world, wrestling to equate the deep yearning for peace with the instinctive urge for gratification and power; that many may have the courage to walk God’s way. (Silence)

Leader: Holy God, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: We pray for our loved ones; for those who lift our hearts and those who turn our hair grey. We pray for those we instinctively warm to and those with whom there are frequent misunderstandings. We thank God for our opportunities of forgiveness. (Silence)

Leader: Holy God, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: We pray for all who are marginalized, scorned or rejected; for those isolated through illness or imprisonment; for those who feel that no one understands. Surround them all with such love that they may know they are precious to you. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Holy God, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: We pray for those approaching death, that through our prayers they may know themselves accompanied with love on that journey.

We pray for those who have died, that they may come to know the full joy of heaven. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Holy God, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: We thank you, Holy God, for making yourself known to us, both in daily living and sacramentally in the breaking of bread.

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