Collect of the Day

God of the narrow way,

You call us to shed all that burdens

The lightness of life

Help us to surrender false wealth,

Embrace our need of you,

And live for your kingdom above all things,

Through Jesus Christ, the richness of God. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word


Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
The word of God is living and active, piercing right to the heart; only with God is it possible to be saved.

Leader:  Let us lay down our own agendas and seek the face of God, and his will for the Church and for the world. We pray 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 all retired clergy of the Diocese of Ottawa. We pray for John, our bishop, Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: We pray for all who are seeking God, and for the nurturing process in this parish. We pray for opportunities to share God’s love and draw others to meet him. (Silence)

Leader: Your will be done:

People: on earth as in heaven

Leader: We pray for all who are fighting against evil for goodness, truth and justice, both those who make the world news and those whose battles are known only to God. We pray for our country and its leaders, that this nation may seek God. (Silence)

Leader: Your will be done:

People: on earth as in heaven.

Leader: We pray that wealth and comfort may not divert us from searching out the heart of God; that we may hear God’s challenging and gladly respond to him; that our homes and communities may sparkle with God’s glory. (Silence)

Leader: Your will be done:

People: on earth as in heaven.

Leader: We pray for the disillusioned and depressed and all who have lost their way in life; we pray for those corrupted by evil, trained in hatred and twisted by bitterness. We pray for the transforming of these lives. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Your will be done:

People: on earth as in heaven.

Leader: We pray for those whose earthly life has come to an end and for those who mourn their going. May the dead rest in the peace and joy of heaven through the mercy of God. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Your will be done:

People: on earth as in heaven.

Leader: With thankful hearts we recall the times when god has rescued and forgiven us, leading us deeper into his friendship.

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

Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum, ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus.

As a hart longs for the flowing streams, so longs my soul for thee, O God.


Prayer after Communion


Holy and blessed God,

as you give us the body and blood of your Son,

guide us with your Holy Spirit,

that we may honour you not only with our lips

but also in our lives.
