Gracious God, thank you that you are over all, in all and through all. We lift our world before you as we continue to journey through the COVID-19 pandemic. We pray for those who are suffering its effects, the medical personnel who are caring for them and all essential workers. We give you thanks for the vaccines now available and for those responsible for their development and distribution. We are grateful for the lives of people who have died and pray for their families and friends in their bereavement. We ask that you enable us to know your love for all and give us your peace which passes all understanding. In the name of Christ. Amen.
The Keeping Connected prayer from the Parish of Hammond River:
Heavenly Father, we glorify your name and thank you for your many blessings. We humbly ask you to open our hearts and minds as we still ourselves to hear your word. In these difficult times, help us to remember to focus on the positive not the negative and hold family, friends and neighbours close. Dear Lord, we ask you to hear the cry of those who yearn for love, and help us to find ways to keep connected with them, especially the elderly, the lonely, and the marginalized within the church and the greater community, nourishing them through prayer and action as we ourselves continue to be nourished through your love. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen
We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs
For as long as it takes
wherever you call us.
