Collect of the Day

You know us each by name, O God,

and in your sight we have found favour,

yet our minds cannot comprehend

the vision of your glory

or the vastness of your love.

Grant, that as we glimpse your greatness,

we may always return to you

the praise that is yours alone.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
All leaders and rulers are subject to the ultimate authority and power of God, the living truth.

Leader: Let us focus our gaze on the great God of our making, as we pour out to him our prayers. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray today for The Parish of Renfrew-Pontiac, St Paul’s, Shawville, Holy Trinity, Radford, Holy Trinity, Danford Lake, St James, Otter Lake, St Paul’s, Renfrew. The Ven. Mavis Brownlee, The Rev. Carol Hotte, The Rev. Tim Kehoe. In our Companion Diocese, the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray today for St Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Zababdeh, Palestine. We pray for John, our bishop, Arran, our priest, and Allan our honorary assistant. We pray for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: Lord of all, give your Church such maturity and wisdom that we may not be swayed from our purpose and calling by trivialities or worldly pressures, but know increasingly our dependence on you in all things and proclaim your Gospel with steadfastness and joy. (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, give to all monarchs, leaders and heads of state graciousness and integrity, that all in power and authority may undertake their duties in a spirit of humility; that the oppressed may find a voice, and the nations work together for the good of the world. (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, give to our homes and places of work and leisure your harmony and peace; give us grace to respect one another and ourselves in the way we talk and think, and in the way we behave. (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, speak your peace into the hearts of all who are agitated, anxious or confused. Lay your hands of healing on all who are ill and let them know your reassurance and love.

At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: You, O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, welcome into your kingdom all who have kept faith and now can lay their burdens down. May they rest in your peace forever. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: You O Lord:

People: are the ground of our being.

Leader: Lord of all, the order and complexity of creation sings your praise, and we give voice to it now as we offer you our song of lives rededicated to the work of your kingdom.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
