Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany

 

Let us pray for all people, for all nations, and for the church, offering silent prayer as we are bidden.

 

We ask your prayers for God’s church, for Geoffrey our Bishop, for the parishes of Bonavista, Bonne Bay North, and for the Primate. The Most Rev’d Linda Nicholls and the Council of General Synod, for Queen’s College, for all staff and students, for all who serve this assembly and for all God’s people everywhere. Pray for the church.

 

We ask your prayers for all who learn. We pray for all those in theological education, discerning a vocation to serve. We remember Professors and support staff, and we give thanks for Debbie Pantin, our guest today, as she reflects on Queen’s College and theological education. We give thanks for all discipleship and learning opportunities, including: Baptismal preparation, Godly Play, The CLB, Junior Choir, Confirmation Training, Youth Group, CLAY experiences, Adult Bible, Advent, and Lenten Studies, and personal acts of faith discovery. Pray for all who learn, who discover you O God, and for all who assist in learning and discovery. 

 

We ask your prayers for the good earth, that all people may respect its resources, preserve its future, and enjoy its fruits in their season. Pray for the soil and the sea.

 

We ask your prayers for the leaders of the nations, that they may act deliberately and dispassionately and for the good of all. Pray for those who govern.

 

We ask your prayers for peace, that the peoples of the world may live in safety and without fear. Pray for peace.

 

We ask your prayers for the wealthy, the free, and the healthy, that they may use their possessions to aid those in need. Pray for compassion among people. We ask your prayers for the sick, those suffering from the Coronavirus, the sorrowing, and for those who are alone, especially we pray for those on the Ascension Prayer Cycle. Pray for those of any need or trouble.

 

We ask your prayers for the faithful departed, that God may give them eternal rest. Pray for those who have died.

 

God of all the living, hear the prayers of your faithful people and grant our requests. Strengthen us for the tasks you give us and bring us at last to praise you forever with your saints, through our Lord. Amen
