Lent 2

 

Let us come before God in the Lententide, praising and blessing and adoring our everliving God, saying: In your glorious mercy, Lord, hear our prayer.

 

O God, who spoke through the prophets and who lives in the only begotten One, show to your church all things. Make us hear your purpose and receive your grace; confirm in your truth all the baptized, especially bishops and clergy, theologians and teachers, mystics and martyrs. We pray for Bishop Geoffrey, Archdeacon Charlene, our preacher today, and we give thanks for her ministry and witness in the church and within the world, the parishes of Catalina, the Cathedral, for the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and Labrador and our brothers and sisters in the Congo. In your glorious mercy, Lord, hear our prayer.

 

Lord of promise and deliverance, we thank you for birthing us in the waters of baptism and for drowning our death in your unending life. We beg that your love well up in us, that our whole lives may worship you. In your glorious mercy, Lord, hear our prayer.

 

God of the people of Israel, Sovereign of every nation, grant your vision of mercy and justice to all who rule in the earth. Prosper the labors of those seeking peace. Assist all who work for reconciliation in the streets and for reformation in prisons.  In our Lenten journey this week we pray for Africa and focus on their water shortage.  In your glorious mercy, Lord, hear our prayer.

 

O Holy One, with the pierced limbs and side, bind us to all those who suffer. Keep us mindful of all innocent victims, all the oppressed, for those who are sick on the Ascension Prayer Cycle, for  all the dying, and for those who are despised, the outcast, the alien, the forlorn. Summon us to restlessness until all who suffer find rest from their sorrow. In your glorious mercy, Lord, hear our prayer.

 

God of Abraham and Sarah, the great I AM, we give you thanks for the signs of your radiant presence in the faith of our fore bearers. Bless us with awe to receive their testimony. Transfigure us by the gift of faith for our life’s journey, until we behold face to face your glorious beauty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

OPENING RESPONSES

 

This is the Good News –

The grave is empty,

Christ is risen.

HALLELUJAH!

 

This is the Good News –

The light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness can never put it out.

HALLELUJAH!

 

This is the Good News –

Once we were not people,

now we are God’s people.

HALLELUJAH!
