Prayers of the People

Great Fifty Days of Easter

These prayers are adapted from a version used by St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Evanston, IL in 2006

The leader of the Intercessions stands in the middle of the congregation. The people respond to the prayers as indicated.

Rejoicing in the mighty acts of God who has delivered his people from sin and death through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Let us lift our voices and pray,

Leader Risen Lord,
People Hear our Prayer.

Let us give thanks to God for the multitude of blessings he showers upon us:

For our lives and for those whom we love,
For the beauty of this home God has created for us,
For our families and our friendships,
Let us give thanks to the God of Life.

Special intentions are offered silently or aloud.

Leader Risen Lord,
People Hear our Prayer.

Let us pray for the Church, that it may carry forward the redemptive works of God:

For our clergy and our bishops,
For the many lay people who serve the church,
And serve the world through the church.
For those gather here in worship and prayer.

Special intentions are offered silently or aloud.

Leader Risen Lord,
People Hear our Prayer.

Let us pray for the newly baptized, that the joy of Easter may ever grow within them, and that the Spirit may guide them in lives of active faith.

Special intentions are offered silently or aloud.

Leader Risen Lord,
People Hear our Prayer.

Let us pray for the nations and peoples of the world, that the powers that oppress and destroy may decline, And that justice, peace, and prosperity be lifted up.

Special intentions are offered silently or aloud.

Leader Risen Lord,
People Hear our Prayer.

Let us pray for those who are sick, those who suffer, those who struggle: and who have died:

That the hope born of Easter give them peace, acceptance and renewal, And that through their struggles they may come into closer communion with the God who redeems and restores.

Special intentions are offered silently or aloud.

Leader Risen Lord,
People Hear our Prayer.

The celebrant adds a concluding collect.
