The Prayers of the People

Leader: The Canaanite woman pressed upon Jesus her needs and was heard.

People: With expectant faith, let us place before God earnest petitions for ourselves and our world.

Leader: For those named in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar, we pray today for St. James, Leitrim, and the Rev. Naomi Kabugi, Interim Priest in Charge. For the visitors, volunteers, and staff of Temple Pastures Retreat Centre and for John Geiger, Director. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for The Bishop’s School for Boys, Amman, Jordan. 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 clergy and people.

People: For the churches and their leaders, at times narrowed by institu­tional concerns and blind to differing manifestations of faith, we call out to the Lord.

Leader: For our world, in need of healing, in search of a saviour, yet far from Jesus, we call out to the Lord.

People: For those who are troubled by demons of mind and body, for those who must watch others suffer, we call out to the Lord.

Leader: For those whose faith is impelling them beyond the limits of society and the constraints of culture, we call out to the Lord.

People: For all of us here present, for those whose faith is known to God alone, and for those intentions we hold deep in our hearts, we call out 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. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Infinite God, we have no claim to your mercy; yet it is your mercy we so desperately need.

People: Turn your ear toward our supplications, and grant us your healing touch. We ask this with faith in the name of Jesus, who is saviour of the world and one with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
