Collect of the Day

Almighty God,
your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ
is the light of the world.
May your people,
illumined by your word and sacraments,
shine with the radiance of his glory,
that he may be known, worshipped, and obeyed
to the ends of the earth;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

We Respond to God’s Word                    

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
Jesus is recognised and pointed out by John to be God’s chosen one.

Leader:  Let us voice our cares and concerns, knowing that God is listening to us. Let us pray for the work and ministry of our Diocesan Ecumenical Officer: The Reverend Canon John Wilker-Blakley. For our Diocesan Newspaper Crosstalk, and for Leigh Anne Williams our Diocesan Editor of Crosstalk. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for the clergy and people of St. Peter’s Church, Birzeit, West Bank. We pray for Linda, our Primate, Anne, our Metropolitan, John, our Bishop, and Michael, our assisting Bishop. For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa. (Silence)

People: Lord God, make yourself known to the people who come into our churches, or who pass by and sometimes wonder, but have not yet come in; make us better bearers of your life to those who need you but have never met you. (Silence)

Leader: True and living God:

People: we want to know you more.

Leader: Lord God, the world lurches from crisis to crisis, and there is much misleading and misdirecting; help us recover the natural sense of what is right and just, honest and good, so that our hearts are inclined to hear the voice of your leading and respond to it. (Silence)

Leader: True and living God:

People: we want to know you more.

Leader: Lord God, help us to take more seriously our responsibility of helping one another forward into faith, as brothers and sisters; we pray for those in our own families whom we would love to bring to know you, and for those who have drifted away. (Silence)

Leader: True and living God:

People: we want to know you more.

Leader: Lord God, there are some who are going through very distressing, painful and worrying times. We stand alongside them now, and ask for them your comfort, reassurance, healing and peace of mind. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.   (Silence)

Leader: True and living God:

People: we want to know you more.

Leader: Lord God, even as we pray now, there are those journeying through death. We pray for them, for all who have recently died, and for all those left without their loved ones, grieving, or numbed with shock. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.   (Silence)

Leader: True and living God:

People: we want to know you more.

Leader:LordGod, we thank you for all those who have directed us to know you better and for the way you are drawing us closer into friendship with you.

Merciful God,

Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son,

our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
