Prayers of the People

Let us pray.
When you hear the words, ‘God of all”, the response is “hear our prayer”.

In these quieter times, God of peace, as in the busyness of our hectic days, you hear the true prayers of not just what we say, but also what we do and who we are. Hear us as we join our hearts in unity to pray for your church. May we be united in your truth, committed in your love, and sanctified by your grace. That with one heart and one voice we might proclaim your gospel, in word and deed, praising you for your abiding presence in our midst as a community of faith.
God of all, hear our prayer.

We pray for this world which you lovingly made, and for all people with all their diversity and commonality. We lift to you those in our world who weep, and those who cause their weeping. Those without food, clothing, shelter. We pray for those who distort the good news of the gospel, who make gods out of things, out of themselves, out of their systems, institutions or structures…and who find it all so hollow and empty.
God of all, hear our prayer.

We pray for those who live without meaning and hope. Who live as objects of the whims of others.  And those who live in broken families, broken communities, and a broken world. Lead your church, we pray, toward a new vision of our mission to them in Christ.
God of all, hear our prayer.

Tender and compassionate God, give us the assurance that you are here among your people. Enable us with your guidance to be your church and to do your will in our common life together. Pour out your Spirit on those who are suffering, especially as we lift to you our own needs and the needs of those whose lives are closely linked with our own:

             Darren, Bob,
, Lynne, Helen, DavidHarold, Lindy & Errol, Tom, Ann

and those we name in the silence of our hearts.

We remember the faithfully departed, especially David and Dorothy Ragg in whose memory the flowers are given.
God of all, hear our prayer.

Bless us to follow in the paths of those saints who have gone before us in faith. Whose steps were taken in the sure and certain comfort of your presence. That we may faithfully glorify you now, in your church and your world, forever. We offer these prayers in the name and spirit of Jesus, your Christ.  God of all, hear our prayer.  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.
