Intercessions and Prayers

Prayer for Today
Almighty God, You have exalted Your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to Your Kingdom in Heaven. Mercifully give us faith to know that, as He promised, He abides with us on earth to the end of time; Who is alive and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God now and for ever. Amen.

Provincial Prayer Care
We pray for the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario: Archbishop Colin Johnson and the Provincial Council.

Diocese Prayer Care

Prayer for our Church Family
Almighty God, You desire peace and unity and encouragement for our body of believers. Help us, Lord, to pursue what makes for peace and for building one another up. Give us discerning hearts to know Your will and give us the courage to be obedient. Lord, we know that without You and Your Holy Spirit indwelling each of us, we cannot do any of these things. But, with You and for Your glory, grant our church family peace and unity. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
