The Prayers of the People


[Derived from Various Forms]

Almighty God,

We pray for God’s people throughout the world; for our elders and deacons; for this gathering; and for all ministers and people. Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you.

We pray for peace; for goodwill among nations; and for the well-being of all people. Guide all those who govern into justice and peace.

We pray for the poor, the sick, the hungry, the oppressed, the unemployed, those in prison, and all who remember and care for them. Deliver them from distress and have compassion toward their need.

We pray for all who seek you, or a deeper knowledge of you. May they find and be found by you.

We pray for the departed who died in hope of the resurrection [especially                    ]. We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy. May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

We pray for                              .

We offer thanksgiving for                              .

We praise you, O Our God, for those in every generation in whom Christ has been honored. May we have grace to glorify Christ in our own day.

Defend us, deliver us, and in thy compassion protect us, O Lord, by thy grace.

In the communion of all the saints, let us commend ourselves, and one another, and all our life, to Christ our Lord, in whose name we pray to you in your Spirit.
