Weekly Prayers of the People

Trusting in the renewal of life all around us, we pray for all believers, the world, and those in need.

 

Move within your church and make our baptism come alive in a renewed commitment to build community, worship together, share our faith, serve others, and work for justice and peace. Enable us to seek and find the creativity you have written into our DNA that we may find new approaches to old challenges, personally and socially.

Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer.

 

Let us celebrate and seek to preserve the diversity of life on earth. Inspire us to preserve and protect the habitats of endangered and threatened species. Turn our attention to the rising sun, the moon lighting the night, and the rhythms of tides and seasons that resonate deep within us, as we are one with this earth from which we came and to which we shall go. Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer.

 

Continue to renew our energy for pushing our democratic nation into justice and shared wealth. Encourage us with the wisdom that democracy is a difficult way to run a country—until you consider the other options. Stand beside police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and other first responders as they handle crisis after crisis—and give them what they need to process the trauma they see and experience on behalf of others.

Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer.

 

Let us feel moved by support and strength in times of sickness and difficulty that is your presence beside us, walking alongside us, holding our hands. Let those who weep find release from stress and hope to carry on. Restore health and wholeness to those we name aloud or silently within our hearts…

Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer.

 

Thank you for the power of hospitality and bless those who cheerfully greet, welcome, help, and serve others in their daily work and in daily life. Let us reach out to our neighbours, making slow and consistent inroads to building community creating connections in the place we call home.

Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer.

 

Create increasing connection with the Anglican Church of Canada and other churches of our area, as well as our own Bishop Kathy. We offer prayers for the churches of our synod, especially Grace Lutheran in Victoria; Mount Olive in Surrey; and for prison ministries and their chaplains.

Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer.

 

Let us bask in the image that, in Easter, comes with the tender and reciprocal marriage between divinity and humanity. May we feel a festive joy in this constant dance between lover and beloved, in the circle of love forever moving around and through us. Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer. Loving God, you are our peace. We pray for peace between Russia and Ukraine. We pray for the people of Ukraine – those who are forced to flee, those who are trapped and unable to flee, those who are in need of aid, those who have died. We pray for Ukrainian and Russian soldiers, that they may be moved to lay down their weapons. We pray for world leaders, that they would be led into your ways of peace and justice. We pray for our whole world who watches and worries. God have mercy!

Let us come to you in child-like wonder, Hear our prayer.

 

We pray all this in the name of Jesus, who welcomes us into the bright light and power of Easter.

 

AMEN.
