Suffering God,

We Respond to God’s Word


Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
Even the Son of Man himself came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Leader:  In humility and love, let us pray together to the God of our making and redeeming. We pray for St. Luke, Ottawa The Reverend Victoria Scott. For Hospital and Nursing Home ministries throughout our Diocese. In our Companion Diocese, The Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. Luke’s Church, Marka, Jordan and for St John’s & St. Luke’s Church, Haifa, Israel.  We pray for John, our bishop, Bishop Michael Bird. For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: That all Christians may fulfil their vocation to be servants, caring for the needs of others, obedient to their Lord in all things and supportive of one another in worship, prayer and deepening faith. (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit our prayers.

Leader: That those who govern and advise may seek out God’s will and the good of all in each crisis, dilemma and debate. (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit our prayers.

Leader: That we may develop the habit of rejoicing in the opportunities to serve, and to put ourselves out for others, laying down our craving for praise and importance. (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit our prayers.

Leader: That those who suffer in mind, body and spirit may sense the Christ close beside them, knowing his healing and resting in his love. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Into your hands, O Lord:

People: we commit our prayers.

Leader: Into your hands, O lord:

People: we commit our prayers.

Leader: We thank you, Lord God, for your long-suffering patience with us, and the affectionate forgiveness which lifts us to our feet whenever we stumble.

Agnus Dei

The Communion

Anthem: Notre Père by Maurice Duruflé

Notre Père qui es aux cieux, que ton nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne, que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.  Donne-nous aujourd’hui notre pain de ce jour, pardonne-nous nos offenses comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation mais délivre-nous du mal. 

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

 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.

This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
