The Prayers of the People

Leader:    For the church and for all your creation, we pray to you, Lord God.  In the Diocese of Ottawa, let us pray for the parishes of Holy Trinity, Bearbrook; St. Andrew’s, Vars; St. Mary’s, Navan; for the members of the Community Ministry Development Committee; for the students and staff of Ashbury College; for St. Vincent’s Hospital and the Elisabeth Bruyere Centre; and for the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine and their Associates in our Diocese.  For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest and for all the clergy and people.  Blessed are the poor in spirit; theirs is the dominion of heaven. And so we pray:

People:   Unite the church and guide all its lead­ers; let us show the world the love of Jesus.

Leader:    Blessed are the pure in heart; they shall see God. And so we pray:

People:   Give your people the will and the courage to value your service above all lesser goods.

Leader:    Blessed are the peacemakers, God’s own children. And so we pray:

People:   Bring peace to the world, security to the nations, and safety to the cities.

Leader:    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. And so we pray:

People:   Remove from us preju­dice and injustice, and raise up among us those who will labour for the good of all whom you have made.

Leader:    Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. And so we pray:

People:   Be present with those who are sick, imprisoned, or in distress; make us quick to love and serve our neighbours.

Leader:    We remember before you all whom we love but see no more. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Rejoice and be glad, their reward is great in heaven. And so we pray:

People:   We remember all who have witnessed to your love with their lives; give us strength to testify to Christ before the rulers of our own day.

Leader:    Almighty God, you have taught us to do justice, love kindness, and practice humility before you;

People:   make our faith active in love, that your name may be praised and your people served throughout the earth, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

ONE IN THE SPIRIT”: On Saturday February 5, 2011, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada is sponsoring a conference “One in the Spirit” for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginals who are committed to working towards healing the wounds suffered through placement in Canadian Residential Schools. First, second and third generation Survivors have much to share and much to teach about the healing process. Location: The Bronson Centre 211 Bronson Ave., Time: 9:30 am – 7:00 pm. Lunch will be provided at 12:30 pm and we will share a traditional Feast at 5:30 pm. Marie Wilson, one of the Truth and Reconciliation Commissioners, will be the  keynote guest speaker. Residential school survivors will share experiences related to both residential schooling and their efforts made towards healing. There will be opportunities to enjoy and appreciate Aboriginal spirituality, music, dance and friendship.

FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH.  The Heart and Stroke Foundation is urgently seeking canvassers as well as leaders to be  the contact person for a group of canvassers.  The revenue goal for the Ottawa chapter is $400,000.  Could you spare a couple of hours next month?  If so, please call 613-727-5060, or e-mail

St. Giles Presbyterian Church in the Glebe will be hosting a WORLD DAY OF PRAYER service in March 2011.  The churches in the Glebe have again extended an invitation to the churches in Old Ottawa South to take a part in and/or to attend their service this March. The co-ordinator at St. Giles is Kaye Tate who would be very happy to hear from churches/representatives who would like to participate in this service.  You may contact Kaye Tate   at   613-521-5625 or
