Prayers of the People

Let us pray.

When you hear the phrase, “by your grace”, the response is “hear our prayer.”

O Risen Christ, be with us this day. We recognize your wounded hands; they tell us that you know what it is to struggle and suffer, and to prevail in the power of love. May we grasp those hands, that they may lead us together into a deeper place of peace.
By your grace, hear our prayer.

Our week has left worries, answerless questions, blatant injustices, and unexpected disappointments.  We are weary.  Come, O Risen Christ and receive our burdens as we empty our cares into your loving hands.
By your grace, hear our prayer.

Risen Christ, extend to us your joy.  Give us imagination enough to pursue your abundant life!  Pour into us the freshness of your new life; for you are our strength and our might.
By your grace, hear our prayer.

How wonderful you are for your loving-kindness toward us. Now may we extend your loving-kindness to all we encounter, we pray for:
the broader church especially in Muranga South, Kenya; the Diocese of Ottawa:
especially the parishes of Trinity, Ottawa, Christ Church, Seaway and Mount Calvary
Lutheran Church, Ottawa; for the Jr. Youth Retreat (April 22-23) and for the
Chaplain of the Ottawa Police, The Reverend Canon Robert Heard
In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for the Church of the Good Shepherd, Salt.
By your grace, hear our prayer.

We lift to you those who are poor, the broken-hearted, the sick and the suffering, and all who are in grief this day. We especially remember………..

Darren, Ethel, Marilyn, Murray,
Terais, Jeremy, Melody & family, Nadia, Tony , Wendy, Gail

….and others whose names we pray silently or aloud.

By your strength lift them up, breathe on them your life-giving Spirit, and grant them and all your children your peace.  This we pray through Christ our risen Lord.  Amen.

The Communion 

This is the Lord’s Table, not just an Anglican table.

  • The bread/wafer is received in the open palm. Gluten-free wafers are available – just ask the priest.
  • The wine, if desired, may be taken from the common cup by drinking (placing your hand gently at the base of the chalice to guide it). Please do not dip the wafer into the wine.    
    If you do not wish to drink from the cup, simply hold the base of the chalice when it is presented to you while the administrator says the words of offering.
  • If you do not wish to receive the bread and wine, but would like a blessing, please indicate this preference by crossing your arms across your chest.
