The Collect of the Day

Sustainer of the hungry,

like a mother you feed your children

until each is satisfied.

Turn our eyes to you alone,

so that, aware of our own deepest longings,

we reach out with Christ

to feed others with the depth of your love. Amen.

Prayers of the People (adapted from Susan Sayers)—Out of God’s riches, a great crowd is fed and satisfied from a small offering of food.

Leader: Knowing that our loving God supplies all our needs, let us pray to God now on behalf of the Church and the world. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray today for St. Martin’s, Ottawa, and the Rev. John Organ. For Holy Trinity, Metcalfe, All Saints, Greely, St. George’s, Vernon, and the Rev. Kerri Brennan. For the members of the Outreach Committee and its subcommittees and working groups. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. George’s College, Jerusalem. We pray for John our Bishop. We pray for Arran and Gary our priests. We pray for all clergy and people.

People: Creator God, we offer this time and the love of our hearts as we pray for the Church with all its varied ministries; for the youngest to the oldest members; for those of mellow faith and those who struggle with doubts.

Leader: Loving God,

People: Give us today our daily bread.

Leader: God, we offer our commitment to pray the news each day and share the pain we read about, longing for your peace and your justice in a world tense with aggression and distorted with selfishness. (Silence)

Leader: Loving God,

People: Give us today our daily bread.

Leader: God, we offer our homes and our relationships for you to work in and transform; we offer you our meetings and conflicts and all differences of opinion for you to use to your glory. (Silence)

Leader: Loving God,

People: Give us today our daily bread.

Leader: God we offer you our solidarity with all who suffer or are heavily burdened; hear us as we pray for their comfort and refreshment, wholeness and restoration, but above all for the consciousness of your presence in their pain, and your love for them. We pray especially for (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (Silence).

Leader: Loving God,

People: Give us today our daily bread.

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: Loving God,

People: Give us today our daily bread.

Leader: God, we give you our lives as well as our words of praise, so that each moment from now on becomes an offering of love.

Leader: Redeeming and merciful God,

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

Offertory Hymn: O Love, How Deep, How Broad, How High             #628

Prayer over the Gifts

Blessed are you, O God,

maker of all things.

Through your goodness

you have blessed us

with these gifts:

our selves, our time,

and our possessions.

Use us, and what we have gathered,

in feeding the world with your love,

through the one

who gave himself for us,

Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord.

The Communion

Anthem: The Call (from Five Mystical Songs) – Ralph Vaughan Williams

Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:

Such a Way, as gives us breath:

Such a Truth, as ends all strife:

Such a Life, as killeth death.

Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:

Such a Light, as shows a feast:

Such a Feast, as mends in length:

Such a Strength, as makes his guest.

Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:

Such a Joy, as none can move:

Such a Love, as none can part:

Such a Heart, as joyes in love.

Prayer after Communion

God of abundance,

with this bread of life

and cup of salvation

you have united us with Christ,

making us one with all your people.

Now send us forth

in the power of your Spirit,

so that we may proclaim

your redeeming love to the world

and continue forever

in the risen life of Jesus Christ,

our Lord. Amen.
