Jerusalem Sunday

June 2, 2019

 

As Christ offered his great high priestly prayer for us who have come to belief through the ministry of his apostolic church, let us pray with Christ, and in his name, for the church, the world, and all people everywhere, saying: Come, Holy Spirit, come.

 

Come, Holy Spirit. Hear us as we pray for the Church here and everywhere. For our Primate Fred, for the clergy and laity of the Anglican Church of Canada, for the Anglican Communion around the world and, particularly today, for the ministries of women and mothers in the church in Jerusalem and the Middle East, for Archbishop Suheil Dawani and the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, and for Bishop Ibrahim Azar and the Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land, that all may proclaim your word of peace and reconciliation. Come, Holy Spirit, come.

 

Come, Holy Spirit. Hear us as we pray for justice and peace on earth, for the leaders of this country of Canada and for the leaders of all nations, particularly remembering today Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. We pray for the holy city of Jerusalem. Bring to those who lead Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities a spirit of co-operation and collaboration. May peace and harmony bless these and all lands. May we be peacemakers in our own community, and continue to work for justice and peace for all. Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

Come, Holy Spirit. You are alive in all the earth.  You moved and shaped land and sea, trees, and all living creatures. You brought us into being. Open our eyes to your presence in the world. Help us to be wise and careful stewards of creation so that there may be abundance of life for all. Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

 

 

Come, Holy Spirit. For those in training, and for all lay ministries that the Holy Spirit continue to inspire the leadership of all theological colleges to provide sound theological education to equip your people for ministry directing us to be faithful to our calling, let us pray to the Lord. Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

Come Holy Spirit. For the apostolic mission of the church, that we may bring all humanity to the knowledge and love of God in Christ, let us pray to the Lord. Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

Come Holy Spirit. For all who need the love and power of Christ, we pray for the sick and those on the Ascension Prayer Cycle, let us pray to the Lord. Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

Come Holy Spirit. For all the saints in glory, and for those whom we have known and loved who though dead, are alive in Christ. We remember Carleton George Bellows and all who have died, let us pray to the Lord.  Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

Pray Together

Into your hands, O God, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in your mercy, through Jesus Christ our risen and ascended Lord. Amen.
