Welcome to Trinity!  If this is your first visit, please note that we do not take a collection during the service, but your offering may be placed on the plate at the back of the church as you enter or leave.  Also, there are many occasions during the service where we stand for lengthy periods.  If you are more comfortable sitting or kneeling, please feel free to do so.

The Prayers of the People:

Leader: Having heard the cleansing, restoring word of God, let us offer our prayers for the world, the church, and ourselves, we pray to you, Lord Jesus.  In our Diocese we pray today for The Parish of Stafford-Whitewater, St. Augustine’s, Beachburg, St. Paul’s, Cobden, St. Mary’s, Westmeath, St. Patrick’s, Stafford, St. Stephen’s, Micksburg, and St. Thomas, Rankin.  We pray for the visitors, volunteers and staff of The Well/La Source. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for St. Saviour’s Episcopal Church, Kuffer Yassif.  Today we pray 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. 

People: O Jesus Christ, who looked with pity on the leprous man and reached out and touched him and made him whole, bring your great healing to the great hurt of our world.

Leader: We pray for your peace where there is war, or the threat of war, or the steady preparation for it, and for relief for victims of political folly and of natural disaster.

People: We pray to you, Lord Jesus, for comfort for all who cry for help, quite sure that no help is at hand, and for all those who stand ready to be part of your an­swer to these petitions.

Leader: We pray to you, Lord Jesus, for those in our Parish for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  Pray for all those who have been isolated by illness, or old age, or by an uncaring society.

People: We pray to you, Lord Jesus, for those who are shunned and pushed to the edge of the community, and for those who are institutionalized, that you grant them your nearness.

Leader: We pray to you, Lord Jesus, for all who see the abandoned and for all who remember the forgotten, and for strength and perseverance for those who serve.

People: We pray to you, Lord Jesus, for all in any need especially the homeless and those attending the “Out of the Cold” program, and for wisdom for us all to create a society more heedful of all its members.

Leader: We pray to you, Lord Jesus, for all Christian people, for deliverance from the willfulness that sets the terms of our own healing and stumbles at the simplicity of faith.

People: We pray to you, Lord Jesus, for courage and steadfastness in the demands that the world places on faith and obedience.

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (silence).  Dear God, we ask, scarcely knowing what and how to ask.

You know the needs we know and the deeper needs we hardly guess.

People: Grant us what is required for the life to which you call us, not because we ask wisely or well, but because of the boundless compassion you have made known to us in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
