Seventh after Epiphany

February 24, 2019

 

To God who welcomes all in love, let us pray for the good of the church and the concerns of those in need, saying: Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For those who work in various ministries in and outside the church. We pray for Bishop Geoffrey, for the parishes of Brooklyn, Buchans, for the Diocese of Montreal, for the ministry of the Mission to Seafarers, for those worshipping in Kenya and the South Sudan, and for the outpouring of donations for the Community Food Sharing Association, we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For those on the long waiting list for surgery, or other therapy, in public hospitals, we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For refugees who are locked in detention camps, waiting for their cases to be processed, we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For the job seekers who long for interviews, as they compete for too few vacancies, we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For the mentally ill who are denied adequate medical care, have become homeless, we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For frail folk who live alone, without neighbours who care,

we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For bruised souls once hurt by religion, and who now do not know where to turn, we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

For the host of ordinary citizens, who give their best without ever being noticed or thanked, we pray to the God of hope.

Loving Spirit, reinforce our prayers with appropriate actions.

 

God hope, God of justice, God of mercy, disturb the peace of those comfortable people whose labour is small and whose burden is light. May each do whatever we can to bring others in from the edges of life, that all may find healing for body, mind and spirit, through Christ Jesus, the Prince of hope. Amen.
