Twenty-third Sunday After Pentecost

 

Grateful for our blessings, determined in our mission, expectant for fulfillment, let the church cry out to God, saying: Lord, have mercy.

 

For faithfulness, that we trust in God’s promise and live in confident obedience, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy

 

For openness in reaching out to all the people of the world, that together we may walk out of darkness into God’s light. We pray for Bishop Geoffrey, for the parishes of St. Philip, St. Thomas' and those worshipping in the Episcopal Church of Spain, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

 

For humility, that we glory only in God’s forgiving, generous love, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

 

For perseverance, that we daily seek out all who are hurt and cry and are in need, we remember especially those that are affected by devastating wildfires in California and Australia, flooding in Venice, as well as the continued civil unrest in Hong Kong. We pray for the perseverance and faithfulness of the church in these places. We remember those that have died, those displaced, and those imprisoned, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

 

For comfort for all those in any need, for health for the sick, especially those on the Ascension Prayer Cycle, that touched by God they may shine with the brilliance of God’s light, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

For those who have died, Levi Pardy, Mary Goodhall, Roy Wareham and Aggie Whelan, may they rest in peace and rise in Glory, let us pray to the Lord:  Lord, have mercy.

 

For the gift of hope, that no matter what challenges we face, we may remain confident that with God all things are possible. We give thanks for St. Margaret, who constantly worked to aid the poor, encouraged people to live a devout life, and to grow in prayer, and in holiness. We pray that our outreach during Advent to The Network Cafe will bring them comfort and hope during the winter months. Lord, have mercy.

 

Blessed are all those who have fought the good fight and now share in the wondrous vision God promised from the beginning. That we may keep them always in our sight, eager for the day of our joyous reunion, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

 

O God, you make glad the hearts of all who dwell in your house. Accept our gratitude, enjoy our praise, and save us. Grant the fulfillment of our prayers through Christ our Lord. Amen
