At Home Worship Resources

During this extraordinary time when we must practice social distancing for the safety of our members and our wider community, we are committed to remaining a place of prayer. 

 

We are learning how to pray and worship virtually; and to be evermore deeply connected as a faith community.

Here is a list of opportunities to join us throughout the week. Please invite family members, friends and neighbors to be with us.

Upholding you and your families in God's love,

Rev. Emily+

A Post-Communion Prayer During this Time of Separation

Priest and people together

Lord of the Feast, we thank you for gathering us as your people. We call to remembrance the many times we have been fed at your table and we lament our distance now. Be present Lord Jesus as you were present with your disciples, be known to us in the breaking of the bread, and may your Holy Spirit sustain us and all your Church until we can gather together again. We ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.

~Written by the Rev. Kevin Moroney

SPECIAL PRAYERS

 

God of the present moment,
God who in Jesus stills the storm
and soothes the frantic heart;
bring hope and courage to all
who wait or work in uncertainty.

Bring hope that you will make them the equal
of whatever lies ahead.

Bring them courage to endure what cannot be avoided,
for your will is health and wholeness;
you are God, and we need you.

-Adapted from New Zealand Prayer Book

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night,

and give your angels charge over those who sleep.

Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying,

soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous;

and all for your love's sake. Amen.

~ The Book of Common Prayer

Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you;

and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three

are gathered together in his Name (even virtually) you will be in the midst of them:

Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us;

granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.

~ The Book of Common Prayer

 

May we who are merely inconvenienced

Remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors

Remember those who are vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home

Remember those who must choose between their health or

paying their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when

their schools close

Remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips

Remember those who have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money

in the tumult of the economic market

Remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for quarantine at home

Remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country

Let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms

around each other

Let us find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors. Amen.
