The Prayers of the People:

Leader: In the waters of baptism, we were called to be God’s children and to minister to one another.

People: Let us therefore pray for ourselves, for one another, and for all those in need of our prayers.

Leader: In our own Diocese of Ottawa we pray today for Christ Church, Aylmer, St. Bernard-de-Clairvaux, St. George’s, Vernon, All Saints’, Greely, Holy Trinity, Metcalfe, and St. Barnabas, Deep River.  In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for Christ Church, Jerusalem.  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.  Let us pray for the church, that it may stand fast in the one faith to which it has been called.

People: Let us pray for the world, that our conflicts may cease and that peace may reign in this new year.

Leader: Let us pray for all Christians who have been baptized into the one family of faith, that our lives reflect the forgiveness and love which was first shown us.

People: Let us pray for all who are blind to the injustices of our world, that their eyes may be opened and that they may work for an end to oppression and injustice.

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 pray to the Lord. 

People: Let us pray that their sickness may be turned to health and that they may once again join us in our work and worship.

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). Give them eternal rest.

People: Let us pray for the faithful who have gone before us, that we may follow the example of their lives and be reunited with them in the joy of everlasting life.

Leader: Omniscient God, you know our thoughts and needs better than we ourselves.

People: Accept the prayers which we now offer, and strengthen us to do your will, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We Celebrate The Presence Of Jesus

Offertory Hymn: Spirit Song

O let the Son of God enfold You
With His Spirit and His love
Let Him fill your heart and satisfy your soul
O let Him have those things that hold You
And His Spirit like a dove
Will descend upon your life
And make you whole

Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill Your Lambs
Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill Your Lambs

O come and sing this song with gladness
As your hearts are filled with joy
Lift your hands in sweet surrender
To His name
O give Him all your tears and sadness
Give Him all your years of pain
And you’ll enter into life
In Jesus’ name
