Prayers of the People

Leader: In today’s gospel, Jesus invites us to follow him.

People: As he laid down his life in intercession for the world, let us pray on behalf of people every­where that the Lord will give us strength.

Leader: For those named in the in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar we pray today for St. James the Apostle, Perth, St. Augustine’s, Drummond, and the Rev. Cannon Christine Piper. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for the Holy Land Institute for the Deaf, Salt, Jordan Jofed Community Rehabilitation Centre, Jordan Valley, Jordan. For participants in the upcoming Diocesan Clergy Conference. 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. For all people of faith who struggle to believe in the promise of life amid the clamor of death, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For the churches who must bear witness to the possibility of taking up the cross and following Jesus, let us pray to the Lord.

Leader: For those who are losing their souls in the pursuit of worldly gain, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For those laying down their lives in faithful dedication to God’s call, 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 remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). For those who are to die this week, and for their safe passage to the life of the world to come, let us pray to the Lord.

People: For all here present who will one day be judged by God’s standards and meet Christ coming in glory, let us pray to the Lord.

Leader: Most high God, your ways are not our ways, yet your ways bear life. Hear the petitions of your assembled people.

People: Pour out on your world the faith to hear your call and the courage to answer it. We ask this in the name of Jesus, who is one with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
