Collect of the Day

God of heaven and earth,
whose Son came eating and drinking,
exposing the rivalry that tears the world apart:
may we share his feast and friendship
and lay our burdens in his liberating arms;
through Jesus Christ, Wisdom’s child. Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
To all who are weary with carrying heavy burdens in life, Jesus offers rest for our souls and unthreatening relief.

Leader: Our loving God is here, attentive to his children. Let’s pray to God now. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray for St. Helen’s, Orleans, the Ven. Susan Churchill-Lackey, and the Rev. Canon Peter Lackey. For the volunteers of all Anglican Pastoral Care Teams. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for The Palestine Hospital, Amman, Jordan.
People: God, we pray that your Church may always be open and receptive to your love; keep us swept clear of pomposity, complacency, or self-righteousness; let us come humbly and simply into your presence and wait on you, knowing our dependence on you, and rejoicing in it. (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:
People: God, we come to you.

Leader: God, we pray for all world leaders and their governments; for the strength of authority comes not through force and domination but through cooperation and mutual respect; we pray for greater consideration of the needs of one another and of our planet, and a desire to right past wrongs and injustices. (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:
People: God, we come to you.

Leader: God, we pray for a growing maturity in our thinking and our loving that enables us to be childlike; we pray for healing from all the damage that prevents us from growing up; we pray that our children in this church may be helped to grow strong, and we thank you for all we learn from them.

Leader: As you have called us:
People: God, we come to you.

Leader: God, we pray for all who cry out for rest and relief, all who are carrying terrible burdens that weigh them down, all whose poverty denies them the chance of healing, all whose wealth denies them the chance of knowing their need of you. 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: God, we come to you.

Leader: God, we pray for those who die unprepared to meet you, and for all who have died recently, both those well-known to us and those dying unknown and unnoticed all over the world. We pray especially for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: As you have called us:
People: God, we come to you.

Leader: God, we thank you for your gentleness and humility, which puts our pride and vanity to shame. Teach us to trust more and more in your truth, discarding what the world considers essential and rejoicing in your freedom.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers in the name 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.

The second phase of the project is well under way. By the end of 2017 an additional 10 homes will have access to clean water and sanitation. The first phase of the project installed 650 gallon water tanks and wastewater storage systems in 10 homes. These tanks are serviced three times a week by a water truck.


Habitat for Humanity Manitoba has joined forces to implement the second phase, which involves providing larger, 1200 gallon, tanks attached to the outside of the house. These will not need to be filled as often as the first phase tanks.


While the project end date for phase 2 is the end of 2017, how quickly the work gets done is always dependent on how easy it is to ship materials and qualified workers up to the remote community.


Since the project’s inception in 2013, PWRDF and Pimatsiwin-Nipi have raised over $550,000 to make this possible.
