1 Peter 2: 20-25

John 10: 1-10

Oh Lord our Shepherd,

Though we stray and wander in our own way, you do not abandon us. You come looking for us until you find us and bring us back to the fold. May we always trust in you and hope in your everlasting love.

PAUSE

We pray in faith, saying,

Hear us, Lord of glory.

Oh God our Hope,

You watch over all people, especially those of your ecclesia. Help us in this time of trouble and uncertainty that we may continue the good works you have set before us and that we may be a light to everyone who lives in darkness. In particular, we pray for the parishes of Gander Bay and The Good Shepherd.

PAUSE

We pray in faith, saying,

Hear us, Lord of glory.

Oh Creator our Lover,

Let us not lose faith in these trying times and let us show love towards one another. Your children cry out for help and relief from hunger, sadness, depression, sickness and hardships of all kinds. Let your love shine down upon all your despairing children, that everyone in the world may feel it and share in your peace which knows no bounds.

PAUSE

We pray in faith, saying,
