a reflection on the Epistle lesson for the same day,

Officiant  Let us pray for the church, the world, and for all the intentions of our hearts:

Intercessor Lord Jesus, the heavens declare the glory of God; and we pray that the Church, and all her people and ministers would join the song that always glorifies you.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord Jesus, the firmament of the earth displays the handiwork of God; we pray for the whole human family across the face of the earth, and for all who live in the midst of disaster, famine, or terror.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Lord Jesus, in the deep you have established a pavilion for the sun; as the sun rises this morning on our nation we pray for our leaders, and all the people who live within these borders. Let us be children of the Light.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We also pray, in your name O Lord, for those who are sick (especially…); let them be whole and sound, and assured of your Presence.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray in your name O Lord for those who are poor, those who are hungry, and those who are hurting in any way. Revive their soul, and rejoice their heart.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

We pray O Lord, for those who we love who have died, that under the shadow of your wing, they would endure forever with you.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Officiant   May the words of our mouth and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our rock and our redeemer. Amen.
