Collect of the Day

God of Aaron, Miriam and Moses,

You stayed the hand of your wrath

When we fell into idolatry and discord.

When we forgot our deliverance,
your love for us remained.

Transform us,

So that our world may become

A place of justice, love and peace.

Welcome us to the feast

Where you invite all to be gathered. Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
We are all invited to God’s wedding banquet; in accepting we must allow the rags of our old life to be exchanged for the freely given robes of holiness and right living.

Leader: Invited by our God, we have gathered here. Let us now voice our prayers for the Church and for the world. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray today for St Margaret’s, Vanier, The Rev. Jason Pollock, The Rev. Aigah Attagutsiak. For the Regional Deans of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa. For the members of the Anglican Church Women and the Brotherhood of Anglican Churchmen. In our Companion Diocese, the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray today for Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Ramla, Israel.

People: God, when either the traditional or the progressive blinds us to the truth of your will, clear our vision and speak through our prejudices until we are once again open to your changing. May we be, before anything else, your people, sharing your concerns and desires. (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:

People: Lord, we come.

Leader: God, we recognise how powerful the influences are in our world which distract many and lead away from your truth. We pray for the quiet whisper of your wisdom to be noticed and acknowledged in many lives; we pray for widespread discipline of the heart, a new openness to generosity of spirit. (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:

People: Lord, we come.

Leader: God, may our homes and daily schedules be part of the territory of your kingdom, where it is your will which guides and your love which rules. (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:

People: Lord, we come.

Leader: God, our hearts rail against the cruelty and unfairness of suffering and disease, and we kneel now alongside all in pain and weep with them, crying out to you for comfort and the healing of your love.

For you are no bringer of evil to our lives, but share our sorrow and give us the grace to bear it. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:

People: Lord, we come.

Leader: God, as death takes from us those we love and we find it hard to live without them, take from us all bitterness of heart and let us share with them the peace you give over which death has no power at all. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:

People: Lord, we come.

Leader: God, it is such an honour to be invited to your banquet; make us worthy of our calling.

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

Prayer over the Gifts

God of all creation,
all you have made is good,
and your love endures forever.
You bring forth bread from the earth
and fruit from the vine.
Nourish us with these gifts,
so that we might be for the world
signs of your gracious presence in Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and Lord. Amen.

Anthem: O Taste and See by Ralph Vaughan Williams

O taste and see how gracious the Lord is: blest is the man that trusteth in him.


Prayer after Communion


We give you thanks, almighty God,
that you have refreshed us
through the healing power of this gift of life.
In your mercy, strengthen us through this gift,
in faith toward you and in fervent love toward one another;
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
