The Collect of the Day

Compassionate God,

you touch those rejected by the world

and those despised by false piety:

guide us away from a false purity

which hides misshapen hearts;

and lead us to the joyful feast

in which all are renewed;

through Jesus Christ, the beauty of God’s face.

We Respond to God’s Word


The Nicene Creed                                                                           page 188

Prayers of the People (adapted from Susan Sayers)—We need to be careful never to replace the timeless commands of God with human-made traditions.

Leader: Our God is the source of all holiness; with the needs of the Church and the world close to our hearts, let us pray to the only one who can renew and redeem. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray today for St. James’, Otter Lake, St. George’s, Thorne Centre, St. James, Wright, Holy Trinity, Danford Lake, and the Rev. Jim Collins, Danford Curacy. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for the Episcopal Technological and Vocational Training Centre, Ramallah, Palestine. We pray John our bishop, and for Arran our priest. We pray for all clergy and people.

People: Loving God, we are all too aware of our temptation to place our trust in rules and traditions, and we long for you to release in the Church such a desire to serve the living God that nothing is allowed to get in the way of that. (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit the future.

Leader: God, we recognize in ourselves the universal dangerous wants and cravings which are cultivated because they make money. Give us universally such a loathing of evil that there is international cooperation and individual responsibility in fighting it and building one another up in love. (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit the future.

Leader: God, may our homes, schools, and churches reflect and engender the Godly values of mutual care, respect and responsibility, of integrity and forgiveness. (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit the future.

Leader: God, we stand alongside all who are hurting in body, mind, or spirit; all who need courage, support or practical help. Make us willing to become part of your answer to our prayers for them. We pray especially for (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit the future.

Leader: As we remember with love and gratitude the lives of those who have died in faith, we commend them to your eternal rest and unchanging affection. We pray especially for (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit the future.

Leader: God, write your Law of love on our hearts and send us glowing with thankfulness through the week ahead.

Leader: Redeeming and merciful God,

People: accept these prayers in the name of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer over the Gifts

Holy God,

gracious and merciful,

you bring forth food from the earth

and nourish your whole creation.

Turn our hearts toward those

who hunger in any way,

so that all may know your care;

and prepare us now

to feast on the bread of life,

Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord.

The Communion

Communion Motet: Sicut cevus – Giovanni Palestria

Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum,

ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus.


As a hart longs for the flowing streams,

so longs my soul for thee, O God.


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.
