We Respond to God’s Word


The Apostles’ Creed                                                            page 189

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Through baptism we have been raised with Christ, ordained to a royal priesthood, and made citizens in a holy nation.

People: As faithful priests serving the King of kings, let us intercede for the entire world.

Leader: In the Diocese of Ottawa, we pray today for St. John the Apostle and Evangelist, Vankleek Hill, and St. Peter’s Chinese Fellowship of St. Luke’s, Ottawa.  For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.  Almighty God, sovereign majesty, as your humble priests we pray for all your children who do not confess you as Lord.

People: Enable us to live the good news convincingly, that all may inherit life eternal in the kingdom of heaven.

Leader: Almighty God, ruler of all nations, cause the leaders of nations to recognize your sovereignty and to accept your gracious rule.

People: Make them proponents of peace and lovers of justice. Crown each ruler with compassion, that all peoples may live in peace.

Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  Almighty God, merciful monarch, look with pity on all who suffer: those with incurable disease, those unjustly imprisoned, those denied dignity, the hungry, those without shelter, those who live without hope.

People: Direct us toward them, that their roy­alty may be reclaimed and their lives celebrate your grace.

Leader: Almighty God, Lord of the church, we pray for your holy catho­lic church on earth.

People: Gather all who bear the name of Christ into one vigorous, fruitful community of faith, that the world may see one King of glory and one kingdom of grace.

Leader: Almighty God, benevolent judge, we pray for all your people gathered here to seek your grace.

People: By your mercy, prepare us for the day of judgment, that we may accept it as a rich and royal gift for the eternal pleasure of the faithful.

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  Grant these petitions, O God, according to your perfect will.

People: That your holy name be praised and proclaimed until that day when all the faithful shall gather before your throne in heaven, through the merits of Christ the King. Amen.

The Communion

Communion Hymn:   Come You Hungry Ones  (Tune: Kum ba Yah)

“Come, you hungry ones,” Jesus said.

“Come to me and know: I am Bread!

Come, you weary ones; you are blest!

In me, find your rest.”


Hear our cry, O God, hear our prayer!

Heal the ones who know, deep despair;

Mend the broken ones from their pain.

Make them whole again.


God, we need you, too, so we pray:

Give us life and health every day.

Give us joy and peace, trusting you.

In Christ, make us new.


We are saved, O Lord, by your grace;

We are healed and sent from this place.

Through your Spirit’s gifts, may we share Your love everywhere.
