The Prayers of the People

Leader: We are the ark of the church, at times storm-tossed and frightened.

People: Let us cry out in faith for our own needs and the needs of the world.

Leader: For those named in our Diocesan Prayer Calendar we pray today for St. James’, Otter Lake, St. George’s, Thorne Centre, St. James, Wright, Holy Trinity, Danforth Lake, and the Rev. Jim Collins, Priest in Charge. For all who labour for the good of society on this Labour Day Weekend. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for The Episcopal Technological and Vocational Training Centre, Ramallah, Palestine. For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence). For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest, for all clergy and people.

People: For those churches who are resisting oppression and enduring persecution in the name of the gospel, we cry out to you O Lord.

Leader: For the leaders of nations, communities, and households who are faced with terrible choices and whose decisions affect the lives of many, we cry out to you O Lord.

People: For those caught in addictions of mind or body, for those who feel powerless and sink ever deeper into despair, we cry out to you O Lord.

Leader: For those who rely on themselves, for those who struggle to trust in God’s beckoning word, for those who know fear before the actions of grace, we cry out to you O Lord.

People: For all of us who gather at this eucharistic table, weak in faith, faltering in our response to God, we cry out to you O 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 pray to you O Lord. We remember those who have died, especially (insert names), for those we name silently or aloud (silence). O true and faithful God, you are the hope of those who cry out to you. Hear our petitions.

People: Where there is no faith, awaken it; where there is little faith, enlarge it, that one day we may all come to acknowledge Jesus as your Son and the saviour of the world. We ask this in his name, who is one with you and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.
