Collect of the Day

Ruler of the universe,
you call us to a loyalty
beyond earthly claims;
grant us strength to offer ourselves to you
as a people who have been raised from death to life;
through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)

Leader: Let us focus our bodies, minds, hearts, and wills as we pray to the God of all creation. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray for St. Bede’s, Nolan’s Corners, and the Rev. Dr. Ron Hunt, Priest in Charge. For St. Bartholomew’s, Ottawa, and the Rev. Canon David Clunie. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for The Home for the Elderly, Amman, Jordan. For our leaders who celebrate the 150th anniversary of our Confederation and for leaders who remind us that the history of this land and its peoples is much older.
People: Holy God, you are the focus of love and worship, because you alone are the Lord who has made us and rescued us. May we not return to sin, but serve you with joy, in thankfulness for all you have done for us. (Silence)

Leader: Heal us, God:
People: and use us to your glory.

Leader: Holy God, though many may often reject you, you never fail to believe in us all and to love us with tenderness. We pray for all areas of conflict, deceit, mismanagement, and greed, and for all who are drawn into the chaos of evil. (Silence)

Leader: Heal us, God:
People: and use us to your glory.

Leader: Holy God, our daily lives provide such rich ground for acts of loving kindness, self-discipline, and courage. Remind us of the opportunities, and strengthen us to use them.

Leader: Heal us, God:
People: and use us to your glory.

Leader: Holy God, we thank you for all who lovingly look after those in nursing homes, hospitals, nurseries, and other institutions. We pray for everyone in need of care. Help us to ask for help when we need it and to extend a hand when we see others hurting. We pray especially for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Heal us, God:
People: and use us to your glory.

Leader: Holy God, we call to mind those who have recently died and thank you for each act of goodness in their lives. Have mercy on them and forgive their failings, so that they may share in the joy of heaven for ever. We pray especially for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Heal us, God:
People: and use us to your glory.

Leader: Holy God, we thank you for our human potential for good, and for your gift of grace that makes such goodness a real possibility.

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

Erik Gero was born in 1951 and is at present The Director of Music and Organist at St. George’s Anglican in Goderich Ontario.  He was awarded two first prizes at the Amadeus Choral Writing Competition in 1998 and a second place in 2009 at the St. Cecilia International Competition.
