People: that we may know the gospel as an inheritance which is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, we pray to the Lord.

Leader: Within our Parish we pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).   We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). 

People: that they may know the love of God who has raised Christ up, having loosed the pangs of death, we pray to the Lord.
