The seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest.
(Ps 65)


Lord Jesus, we hear in the Psalm that the seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest.
May our lives be planted in good soil and grow to become strong examples of what is needed to follow you with our whole hearts,
to remain faithful to our yes in being witnesses to your presence in our lives.
Amen.

Prayer for Peace

Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
and to the house of the God of Jacob;
and he will teach us of his ways,
and we will walk in his paths:
for the law shall go forth of Zion,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks:
nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.

But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid:
for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
Amen

May all the earth give you worship and praise,
and break into song to your name, O God, Most High.
(Ps 65)


God our Father, we pray that you will hear our prayer and lead us to experience peace and joy in our lives.
In this time of fear in our world,
may you lead us to the way of peace and help us to share this peace with those whom we encounter in our daily lives.
Amen.

May Love Abound

May the lonely be comforted.
May love abound and divisions between us cease to exist.
May all beings of the earth feel safe and free of fear.
May we each continue on the path towards enlightenment with gladness and diligence.
Amen

Prayer for Those in the Armed Services

O God of Mercy, we beg You now to protect in a special way those who are fighting for us and for the country we love.
Bless them and take care of them. If they are tired, give them strength.
If they are wounded and suffering, give them comfort.
If they are lonely, touch them with Your gentle hand and let them know that You are near them.
Grant them strength, wisdom and help through Your power and Your limitless love.
Amen.

Prayer of Thanks

Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them.

to the glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Prayer for Those In Despair

Send your life-giving Spirit
upon those who despair of living,
O generous and loving God.
If it is your will,
let them find rest from their labors
that they may have peace.
If there is a call they have not heard,
open their eyes and ears to know it
that they may find the joy of abundant life.
Grant them your blessing this day
and every day.
Amen.

Humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls.
(James 1)


Lord Jesus, we ask that you continue to guide and inspire those who lead us in our Church.
May their message be heard and may our young people be inspired to grow in their love for God, for self and for others.
May our youth live wholesome experiences in our Church and may these experiences be grace-filled times in their lives.
Amen.

Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth;
you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom.
(Mt 11)


God our Father, your Son Jesus taught many times through parables.
We hear in scripture about the merchant in search for fine pearls.
Help us to grow in our understanding of what it means to be a true disciple and to recognize good value and the priceless treasures in our lives.
Help us to put aside material belongings in order to focus on following the ways of your Son.
Amen.

O look at me and be merciful, for I am wretched and alone.
See my hardship and my poverty, and pardon all my sins.
(Ps 24)


Lord Jesus, sometimes our lives can seem so difficult and painful that we lose sight of your presence in our lives.
We sometimes don't know how to approach you for we have sinned and are in need of your forgiveness and healing,
yet our humanity gets in our way of asking for your forgiveness and strength.
We come before you this day, mindful of our sinfulness and our deep desire to be forgiven.
Help us to live with our humanness and to call to you for mercy.
Amen.

Jesus, Be Our Companion

Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past;
be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope,
that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread.
Grant this for the sake of your love.
Amen.

Keep Us From Pettiness

Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with faultfinding and leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretenses and meet each other, face to face, without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.
Let us take time for all things; make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put in action our better impulses-straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things of life that create difficulties; that in the big things of life we are as one.
Oh, Lord, let us not forget to be kind.
Amen.

- Mary Stewart, Queen of Scots

The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Who shall frighten me?
The Lord is the defender of my life.
Who shall make me tremble?
(Ps 26)


Lord Jesus Christ, we come before you in prayer with grateful hearts for all the good that you have shown us in our lives.
You are our light and our salvation, may we never feel fear in our lives that it would separate us from you.
We believe that you are our defender in life, may we always come to you when we are faced with difficulties and hardships.
Amen.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
(Mt 5)


God our Creator, there are so many people in our world who are persecuted for their belief in you.
We hear in scripture that those who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness that the kingdom will be theirs.
We pray for all those whose lives are threatened by violence because of their witness to your presence in our world.
May they feel your presence in their life and may they be strengthened in your love and mercy to continue to bear witness to your name.
Amen.

God, come to my help.
Lord, quickly give me assistance.
You are the one who helps me and sets me free:
Lord, do not be long in coming.
(Ps 69)


God our Father, we ask that you keep us strong and alive in your love.
As we journey in this life, we are in need of your strength to sustain us and to help us remain focused on our journey in life.
There are many distractions that can cause us to lose sight of your presence in our lives and in our world.
May we strive to remain focused and to give you thanks each and every day for we are grateful for the many graces that you give us in our journey in faith.
Amen.

The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.
(Jer 31)


God our Father, your Son brought light into our world.
We desire to shed the brightness of this light in places where there is darkness.
In baptism we were given the light of Christ to shine brightly before all. May we never let this flame burn out.
We ask for your grace to keep this flame alive and to be bearers of the light of Christ to all whom we encounter in our journey in life.
Amen.

Day by Day

Day by day, dear Lord of you
Three things I pray:
To see you more clearly,
To love you more dearly,
To follow you more nearly,
Day by day.

- St. Richard of Chichester

Lord, be true to your covenant,
forget not the life of your poor ones for ever.
Rise up, O God, and defend your cause;
do not ignore the shouts of your enemies.
(Ps 73)


Lord Jesus, we desire so much to be true to your covenant with us.
Yet, at times we fail to remain true to your presence in our lives for we have many distractions that we encounter in our journey of faith.
Help us to focus our lives on your presence in our journey and may we always respond to you in faith and trust.
Amen.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on the fields where valor led,

It seems to signal to the skies

That the blood of heroes never die.

Moina Michael 1915

Lord we gather this day to pay tribute to the fallen warriors. Since 1868 when you gave General John Logan the insight for the creation of Decoration Day.
We have honored fallen heroes who gave thier all in battle.


We have been involved with many battles since that time and many fine servicemen and women have given thier all.

We take this time today to thank them and to help ensure that thier lives will not be forgotten.

Let us all take a few moments and say a silent prayer for these heroes.
.
.
.
Thank you Lord and may God Bless
Amen

In my justice I shall see your face, O Lord;
when your glory appears,
my joy will be full.

As we walk this journey on earth,
may we grow in our desire to receive this promise in its fullness and live in the glory of your presence forever.
Amen.
