The Prayers of the People

Leader: In the life of Jesus Christ in our midst, we have known God’s judg­ment and mercy, and in the glory of Jesus we acclaim the image of God invisible. With the whole church we turn to Christ this day, acknowl­edging that he alone rules in truth.  For the Church throughout the world; in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar we pray for St. Matthew’s Ottawa and The Rev. Cannon Pat Johnson.  For the members of the Licensed Lay Readers Association and their warden, The Rev. Jim Kirkpatrick.  For the upcoming 113 Cursillo Men’s Weekend.  For all young people who have been affected by suicide, addiction and self-harm.  For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest and for all clergy and people.

People: When you come to rule, remember us, O Lord.

Leader: Jesus, Savior and Judge, you have confounded earthly judg­ment by choosing to be numbered among the transgressors.

People: May your words comfort all who are in prison, all judged guilty by society or church, and all who live on the margins of the human family.

Leader: Jesus, condemned and powerless before your enemies,

People: grant to the leaders of peoples to know that their rule is in the service of a greater law.

Leader: Christ, first-born of the dead, through the blood of your cross you give unity to the divided.

People: Give to the church the hope of resurrection; may we recognize the image of God in your own rising.

Leader: Christ, image of the invisible God, free us from holding you in images of our own making.

People: Grant that in the Spirit we may see all power and all life transformed by the compassion of the cross.

Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names).  We remember those who have died, especially (insert names).  Jesus may all those who have died live with you in paradise.

People: We acclaim you, Jesus Christ, as the judge condemned to judgment, knowing that in your death the world is judged.

Leader: Grant that the world may seek God’s justice rather than human wisdom, and that all vic­tims of human cruelty may share in the victory of life revealed to us in your death and rising.

People: We join our prayers with the pleading of your blood poured forth at God’s right hand, where you rule in the Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
