Prayers of the People

Let us pray.
When you hear the phrase, “loving God”, please respond with “Hear our prayer”.

Lord God, we give you thanks for all your gifts—for daily food, for health, for each breath we take, for freedom to choose, and for the gifts of your word, your power and your love.
Loving God, hear our prayer.

Our hearts are truly overwhelmed, O God, when we consider how you have entrusted so much to us.  May we be worthy of that trust—may we be a people who are unafraid to live as fully and as richly as you want us to live.
Loving God, hear our prayer.

Help us, O God, as followers of Jesus, to multiply all that you have given us, to risk spreading your word and perhaps see it misunderstood. To gamble by loving those whom others think worthy only of hate, to take chances by doing good to those who have not done good to us.
Loving God, hear our prayer.

Help us be faith filled people and give us a desire to increase your glory and your goodness in this world.  Make us people who share in both word and deed that which you have given to us.
Loving God, hear our prayer.

We pray for the church gathered today, both here and around the world, that it may encourage all its members to discover, develop and use all their gifts.
Loving God, hear our prayer.

We pray for those who are poor in body or in spirit, for those oppressed and heavy laden, for those sick or in despair.   Minister by your Spirit and by us, especially to….

Murray, Marion, Derek, Ivy, Gail,
Wendy
, Gail, Nadia, Lynne, Helen, Rob, Bill….

We give thanks for the life of Muriel Christie: rest eternal grant to her, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon her. Be with those who mourn her in this time of loss.
Loving God, hear our prayer

Help us walk faithfully in the path of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Loving God, hear our prayer..  Amen.

The Communion & Anointing
(Anointing is available during communion at the prayer desk.)

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.
