Prayers of the People

Let us pray.

When you hear the phrase, “Lord, in your mercy” please respond with “hear our prayer.

Heavenly Father, you have promised to hear when we pray in the name of your Son.

Therefore, with confidence and trust we pray for the church.
We pray for the Anglican Church in Ruvuma, Tanzania and The Episcopal Technological and Vocational Training Center, Ramallah, Palestine.
In our own diocese we pray for St James’, Otter Lake; St George’s, Thorne Centre; St James, Wright and Holy Trinity, Danford Lake; and for the Ecumenical-Interfaith Officer, The Reverend Canon John Wilker-Blakley.
Redeeming God, enliven the Church for its mission that we may be salt of the earth and light to the world.  Breathe fresh life into your people; give us power to reveal Christ in word and action.  Lord, in your mercy; hear our prayer.

Creator of all, lead us and every people into ways of justice and peace that we may respect one another in freedom and truth.  Awaken in us a sense of wonder for the earth and all that is in it.  Teach us to care creatively for its resources.
Lord, in your mercy; hear our prayer.

God of truth, inspire with your wisdom those whose decisions affect the lives of others, that all may act with integrity and courage.  Give grace to all whose lives are linked with ours. May we serve Christ in one another, and love as he loves us.
Lord, in your mercy; hear our prayer.

We pray for those in need, particularly remembering…

Darren, Ethel, Marilyn, Murray, Linda & Randy, Priscilla, Marion, Derek, Wendy, Gail, Nadia, Lynne,  Helen and George….

… We pray for Peter and all those fighting the B.C. forest fires.

God of hope, comfort and restore all who suffer in body, mind or spirit.   May they know the power of your healing love.  Make us willing agents of your compassion. Strengthen us as we share in making people whole.
Lord, in your mercy; hear our prayer.

We give thanks for Reaghan and Abigail who are being baptized today, and pray that they will be given inquiring and discerning hearts, the courage to will and to perservere, a spirit to know and to love you, and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works.  Lord, in your mercy; hear our prayer.

Your word, O God, word is a lamp for our feet. In darkness and in light, in trouble and in joy, help us to trust your love, to serve your purpose and to praise your name, through Jesus Christ our 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.
