The response to Praying as one: “Hear us Lord of Glory”        

God of Motherly Love, you bring us together as the human family to show us your way to new life and community, trusting you are the Way of compassion; trusting in our Home there are many rooms, many differences, yet one community, one humanity. (Pause Moment)…. Praying as one: Hear us Lord of Glory”

God of Living Faith, you bring us together in spirit and truth, showing us the way as you showed Thomas and Philip, and in the community of Church, especially remembering the parishes of Grand Bank and Grand Bay. Help us to be witnesses of your life-giving love and mercy as we share the sorrow with the family of the late George Mugford. (Pause Moment)…. Praying as one: Hear us Lord of Glory”

God of the Universe, we are reminded by the rapid spread of Covid-19 that our world is small and we aren’t in control. May we recognize the need to help the world heal of violence and neglect, so as to spread your message of loving kindness. (Pause Moment)…. Praying as one: Hear us Lord of Glory” 

God of Rebirth, may we with you raise the sick to health, restore the broken and neglected to renewed purpose, and bring to the centre the disconnected and the disrespected. (Pause Moment)….Praying as one: Hear us Lord of Glory” 

God of Restoration, pray with us, united as one spirit, to show each other the need to heal Mother Earth. (Pause Moment)…. Praying together: Hear us Lord of Glory”
