Prayers of the People

Intercessor   Have mercy on us, O God, according to your loving kindness;
in your great compassion, hear our prayers. We pray for the whole
church, all leaders and ministers, and all the holy people of God.
Wash us through and through,
All:    and cleanse us from our sin.

We pray for our nation, for all the nations of the earth, and for all
who govern and judge.  Purge us from our sin,
All:   and we shall be pure.

We pray for those who hunger, those who thirst, those who cry out
for justice, those who live under the threat of terror, and those
without a place to lay their head.  Make them hear of joy and gladness,
All:    that those who are broken may rejoice.

We pray for those who are ill, those in pain, those under stress, and
those who are lonely. We especially pray for:
   Darren, Bob, Kerry & Judy, Wendy, Lynne, Helen, David,
Lindy & Errol, Tom
, Ann, Camilla, Muriel, Patti, Reg
Give them the joy of your saving help,
All:    and sustain them with your bountiful Spirit. 

In this season of Lent we pray for those who prepare for baptism, and
we pray that we all might be given the grace and strength to repent
and grow closer to you, O God.

Create in us clean hearts, O God,
All:    and renew a right spirit within us.

Lord Jesus, you taught your disciples that you must undergo great suffering and be killed before rising again; grant us the strength and wisdom to be your followers and to take up our cross to follow you, this day and always. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer –said, traditional                                                                              211

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.

Prayer after Communion
Compassionate God, you have fed us with the bread of heaven.
Sustain us in our Lenten pilgrimage; as we hunger for justice, strive for peace, and offer thanks from grateful hearts; through Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord.  Amen.
