A caution regarding Prayers of the People online: Folks gathered in-person often recount a lot of detail in their prayers concerning other members or family (“Elderly Name, living alone, experiencing isolation…”). In a private, in-person gathering, this information may be safe, but online, it can expose vulnerable people to harm, since we can’t control who will join the gathering or access it later online. Please contact the Pastor directly by text or phone with prayer requests. Pastor Nathan will be prudent in offering prayers i.e. “For First name only, in need of healing”; “For First name only, comfort in grief” etc. Please contact the pastor directly with news of those needing extra pastoral care.

Responsive Intent

One: My heart rejoices in you and I am strengthened by your presence. My mouth belittles all that stands in my way because, in you, I am a winner.
All: Praise the Holy One!
Two: You are the Rock on which justice stands. Those who became rich on the backs of others now hire themselves out for stale bread, but those who struggled to survive you have filled with good things.
All: Praise the Holy One!
Three: You lift up the poor and the needy and set them among dignitaries and royalty; you give them the seat of honour. For the earth belongs to you and the world is established in your ways.
All: Praise the Holy One!


Morning Prayer Concerns and Celebrations
Prayers of the People and Lord’s Prayer
Our Mother-Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
