Collect of the Day

Lord God our redeemer,
who heard the cry of your people
and sent your servant Moses
to lead them out of slavery,
free us from the tyranny of sin and death,
and by the leading of your Spirit
bring us to our promised land;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
We are to love God with our whole being, and love others as much as we love ourselves.

Leader: In love and trust, let us pray to our God for the volunteers of Anglican Pastoral Care, Ottawa Hospital, Civic and General Campuses with the Reverend Di Jaggassar, Chaplain, and Sheila Granger, Volunteer Coordinator. For our Lutheran sisters and brothers on Reformation Sunday. We pray for Linda, our Primate, Anne, our Metropolitan, John, our Bishop, and Michael Bird, our assisting Bishop. For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: Holy God, give us the courage to tell out your truth without fear, and to work for your kingdom with joy. Thank you for the support and love of other Christians, and the richness of our varied traditions. May we focus our attention on you with such love that all unnecessary divisions between us crumble. (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, we pray for our law makers and keepers; may our laws work to uphold what is just and true. We pray that we may live in Godly peace and goodwill through choice, rather than through fear of punishment; through the desire to live well, rather than avoiding detection. (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, in all our day-to-day living may we reject deceit and flattery, so that our motives and behavior are honest, and our love for one another clear as the day.(Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, we pray for all law breakers and their families; for those in prison and those returning to the community. We pray for those imprisoned by guilt or shame, or trapped by physical frailty, illness or paralysis. We pray for those whose lives are tragically disrupted by war and famine, poverty and disease. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader:  Holy God, we remember those who dying in faith, rejoice to see you as you are. We thank you for their example and comment them to your peace for ever. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, we give you thanks for the love poured out to us each moment of each day, and ask of you the grace to live our gratitude and give freely of what we have freely received  (Silence)

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

The Communion

Anthem: Lead me Lord by Samuel Sebastian Wesley

Lead me Lord, lead me in thy righteousness, make thy way plain before my face.

For it is thou, Lord, only, that makest me dwell in safety.

God our guide,

you have fed us with bread from heaven

as you fed the people of Israel.
