Collect of the Day

Almighty and everliving God,
increase in us your gift of faith,
that forsaking what lies behind
and reaching out to what is before,
we may run the way of your commandments
and win the crown of everlasting joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
All leaders and rulers are subject to the ultimate authority and power of God, the living truth.

Leader: Let us focus our gaze on the great God of our making, as we pour out to him our prayers. We pray for our upcoming Diocesan Synod (October 24-26, 2019) For our Diocesan Conferences and Events Coordinator, Heidi Fawcett. For all retired clergy of the Diocese of Ottawa. We pray for Linda, our Primate, Anne, our Metropolitan, John, our Bishop, and Michael Bird, our assisting Bishop. For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: Lord of all, give your Church such maturity and wisdom that we may not be swayed from our purpose and calling by trivialities or worldly pressures, but know increasingly our dependence on you in all things and proclaim your Gospel with steadfastness and joy. (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, give to all monarchs leaders and heads of state graciousness and integrity, that all in power and authority may undertake their duties in a spirit of humility; that the oppressed may find a voice, and the nations work together for the good of the world. (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, give our homes and places of work and leisure your harmony and peace; give us grace to respect one another and ourselves in the way we talk and think, and in the way we behave. (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, speak your peace into the hearts of all who are agitated, anxious and confused. Lay your hands of healing on all who are ill and let them know your reassurance and love. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all welcome into your kingdom all who have kept faith and now can lay their burdens down. May they rest in your peace for ever. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence).

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, the order and complexity of creation sings your praise, and we give voice to it now as we offer you our song of lives rededicated to the work of your kingdom.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Agnus Dei from Communion Service in F by Herbert Sumsion              

The Communion

Anthem: Notre Père by Maurice Duruflé

Notre qui est aux cieux.  Que ton nom soit sanctifié.  Que ton règne vienne. Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.  Donne-nous aujourd’hui notre pain de ce jour.  Pardonnes-nous nos offences comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.  Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivres-nous du mal.

Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earthas it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Prayer after Communion

God of peace,

you have nourished us in this sacrament

with the body and blood of Christ.

May we who have taken holy things

keep faith in our hearts and lives,

in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.
