Let us Sing in Glory to God
who cause the minds of the faithful
to unite in a single purpose,
grant your people to love what you command
to desire what you promise,
amid the uncertainties of this world,
our hearts may be fixed on that place
where true gladness is found.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Prayers of the Faithful
Let us join together to bring our prayers before our Father in heaven.
For the leaders of the Church, may the Holy Spirit continue to work through them to bring others to Christ, We pray: LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.
For the sick, especially those struggling with chronic illness, may God bring them healing of mind and body, We pray: LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.
For our faith community, may God’s grace help us to affirm the dignity of every person, especially the unborn, the elderly, the refugee, and the poor, We Pray: LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER
For those who have died, may they hear Jesus’ voice as he welcomes them by name into the heavenly kingdom, We pray: LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.
For all the prayers that we hold in the silence of our hearts. We pray: LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER.
Heavenly Father, we entrust our prayers to you, through your Son, Christ our Lord
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Complete within us,
O Lord, we pray,
the healing work of your mercy
and graciously perfect
so that in all things
we may please you.
Through Christ our Lord.
