Officiant O God, make speed to save us.
People O Lord, make haste to help us.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as
it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia!

Psalm 128 Beati omnes

1 Happy are they all who fear the LORD, *
and who follow in his ways!
2 You shall eat the fruit of your labor; *
happiness and prosperity shall be yours.
3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine within your house, *
your children like olive shoots round about your table.
4 The man who fears the LORD *
shall thus indeed be blessed.
5 The LORD bless you from Zion, *
and may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
6 May you live to see your children's children; *
may peace be upon Israel.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Scripture Malachi 1:11 From the rising of the sun to its setting my Name shall be great among the nations, and in every place incense shall be offered to my Name, and a pure offering; for my Name shall be great among the nations, says the Lord of Hosts. Thanks be to God.

Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Let us pray in the words Jesus taught us...

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
And the glory forever. Amen

The Collect
Lord, hear our prayer; And let our cry come to you. Let us pray.

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles, "Peace I give to you; my peace I leave with you:" Regard not our sins, but the faith of your Church, and give to us the peace and unity of that heavenly city, where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, now and for ever. Amen

I invite your own intercessions and thanksgivings at this time… (pause in silence)

For Darlee Jackson, Sean, David, Woody, Michael, Cherie, Beverly, Darla, Barb, Sue/family, Kelly Bee/family, Lori/family, Sonni, Sandy, Kidd, Kiki, Shirley, Rob and Tim, and Hugh. For Jessica & Paul. For a safe and restorative sabbatical for Fr. Adam. For end to racism, Peace and Reconciliation. For an end to the war in Ukraine and the casualties there. For all the refugees, migrants, and displaced persons around the world, especially women and children. For our armed forces both here and abroad. For those infected with or at risk from the Covid virus and for those who care for them. For those on Faith Journeys. For each of us, that we may practice your command to “love one another”. AND FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS TODAY. Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Bless all women who daily strive to bring peace to their communities, their homes and their hearts. Give them strength to continue to turn swords into plowshares. We pray for all women who face prejudice, inequality and gender disparities. Help us see and to face the discrimination against women in all the many forms it may take. Comfort all women who suffer from the pain of war, violence, and abuse.
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

Almighty God, in giving us dominion over things on earth, you made us fellow workers in your creation: Give us wisdom and reverence so to use the resources of nature, that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty;
Lord, in your mercy, Hear our prayer.

O God, in the course of this busy life, give us times of refreshment and peace; and grant that we may so use our leisure to rebuild our bodies and renew our minds, that our spirits may be opened to the goodness of your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The service concludes as follows
Officiant Let us bless the Lord.
People Thanks be to God.

Psalm 85:8-13 Benedixisti, Domine
8 I will listen to what the Lord God is saying, *
for he is speaking peace to his faithful people
and to those who turn their hearts to him.
9 Truly, his salvation is very near to those who fear him, *that his glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth have met together; *
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring up from the earth, *

Scripture Luke 11:33–36
Jesus said, "No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar, but on the lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light; but if it is not healthy, your body is full of darkness. Therefore consider whether the light in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be as full of light as when a lamp gives you light with its rays." Thanks be to God.

Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Almighty God, who strengthened your servant Irenaeus to defend thy truth against every blast of vain doctrine: Keep us, we pray, steadfast in your true religion, that in constancy and peace we may walk in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
