The Prayers of the People

Leader: Through the power of God, John saw Jesus in spirit and truth.

People: For the power of God to be felt in our own times, let us offer our prayers of intercession.


Leader: For those named in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar we pray today for All Saints’, Petawawa, St. George’s, Alice, and the Rev. Cathy Davis. The Community of St. George’s Military Chapel, Petawawa. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. John the Baptist Episcopal School for the Integration of the Blind, Irbid, 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, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For all peoples of the earth and powers of the world who have not yet recognized Jesus as the Christ, let us pray to the Lord.

Leader: For the unity of the churches, and for their common witness to the possibility of faith, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For those who struggle to believe in the earthly manifestations of Christ in the church, in the liturgy, and in daily life, let us pray to the Lord.

Leader: For those who suffer at the hands of the church, and for those who are oppressed in the name of God, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For ourselves, our families, and our communities, who are daily faced with questions of faith, let us pray 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). Living God, you wish to be among us in your Son and in his church. Hear the petitions we place before you.

People: Increase our faith that we may see your works more clearly; purify our actions that we may reveal your love more surely. We ask this in the name of Jesus, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Thank you for supporting our CLAY bake sale.
We raised $154 last Sunday!

COFFEE TIME:   Each Sunday, we need volunteers to set up, serve, clean up and provide a snack to share. Please see the Sign-up sheets  for September and October in Bender Hall today.   Have questions?  Please see Sally Clarke.

PAPER CUPS INSTEAD OF MUGS:  At Coffee Time, we are switching to paper cups instead of mugs for a trial period (September and October).   Washing 40+ mugs takes a lot of time – let’s make it easier and save our effort for other tasks.   Used cups will be composted in our green bins.   Later in October, we’ll ask for your feedback via a short questionnaire.
