The Prayers of the People:

Leader: The law that transforms the wasteland into a land of milk and honey is the law of love.  Trusting in God’s promise to lead us more deeply into that land, let us ask with confidence for all we need, saying: Teach us your ways, O God:

People: Hear us, good Lord.

Leader: We pray for the leaders of this country, that they may govern with justice and mercy, mindful of their responsibility to the world’s poor. Teach us your ways, O God:

People: Hear us, good Lord.

Leader: We pray for the church that, as a sign of your loving embrace, it may call all to share in your reign. Teach us your ways, O God:

People: Hear us, good Lord.

Leader: We pray for ministers everywhere, that you may strengthen them in their desire to serve. Teach us your ways, O God:

People: Hear us, good Lord.

Leader: We pray for this community of faith, that we may learn to love with all our hearts, our minds, our strength. In our Diocese, we pray today for St. Paul’s Anglican & St. James’ Lutheran, Renfrew, St. Mark’s , Pakenham, St. John’s,  Antrim, and St. George’s, Waba.  We pray for all the Regional Deans of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, and for all the members of the Anglican Church Women. In our Companion Diocese, the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray today for St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Zababdeh, Palestine.  For the needs of the whole Church that we name silently or aloud (silence).  For John our Bishop, for all bishops, for Andrea our Priest, for all the clergy and people.  Teach us your ways, O God:

People: Hear us, good Lord.

Leader: We pray for the unloved of this world, for those who are wid­owed, orphaned, and friendless, for those who are homeless and alone and for all who experience alienation, that you may touch them with your compassion. Teach us your ways, O God:

People: Hear us, good Lord.

Leader: We pray for all who are sick, especially (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (pause). We pray for all those who have died, especially (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (pause) that they may find eternal life in your loving presence. Teach us your ways, O God:

People: Hear us, good Lord.

Leader: Loving God, inscribe your words upon our hearts, that, carrying them with us out into the world, we may reveal your reign to all those we meet upon our way.  We ask this through Jesus Christ, our guide and goal.

People: Hear us, good Lord.  Amen.
