GOSPEL READING
Matthew 28:16-20
The Commissioning of the Disciples
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’

THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE OF FAITH
[The congregational response after each petition is: “COMPLETE YOUR NEW CREATION.”]
Pastor: As we celebrate the joy of the resurrection, let us pray for God’s continuing work of new creation in the life of the Church, for the peace and well-being of the world, and wherever brokenness and death oppose God’s abundant life, saying, “Hear us, O God of life,” and responding, “Complete your new creation.”

Petitioner: God of promise, the power and mystery of your presence as trinity graces our lives with hope and renewal. Open us up to the challenges you place before us and all your people, fill us with your Spirit, and help us to be your presence of love and your witness of faithfulness in the world. Hear us, O God of life…

Petitioner: God of all creation, you make, redeem, and sustain a world of awe, beauty and abundance. Inspire delight in the furry, scaly, watery, breezy, sandy stuff you love. Shelter all life and habitat that endure devastating effects from our pollution of water, air and land. Provide for all people whose livelihood depends upon clean water and air and fertile soil. Hear us, O God of life…

Petitioner: God of hope, in spite of all we have heard and all that we have seen we forget where healing comes from, forget who binds all together as family, forget that life in Christ is completely different. Through touching the water of baptism, hearing the Word of forgiveness, tasting the goodness of your life-giving meal, help us remember that we have a God of truth, a Triune God, who graciously creates, redeems and sustains all creation, and whose steadfast love for us is certain and assured. Hear us, O God of life….

Pastor: God of healing, when adversity and sorrow wounds faith, in our weakness we know not how to pray. Intercede for us, bringing hope to the sorrowful, fearful, and anxious, and healing to those who are suffering or ill. We remember especially before you …. Bring an end to pain, loss, brokenness, and sorrow. Hear us, O God of life…

Petitioner: God of peace, protect and lead your world through these breathless times wracked with trouble, violence, and distress. We remember especially those throughout the world and in our nation who suffer from racism and injustice and all who suffer in the face of oppression, persecution, and violence. Help leaders and citizens use political power to draw us together in our common humanity that your desire for peace and life may be known in every time and place. Hear us, O God of life…

Petitioner: God of life, through your revelation to us as Trinity you call us into a love that exceeds our understanding or desire. As Trinity you model the way of living together as a community of unconditional love. Make us and all your people into a church community which abides in this trinitarian love and embodies this perfect love in an imperfect world. Hear us, O God of life…

Petitioner: Generous God, fill us with compassion and concern for others, young and old, that we may look after one another in these challenging days. Bring healing to those who are sick with the virus and be with their families. Comfort the family and friends of those who have died. Strengthen and protect all medical professionals caring for the sick and all who work in our medical and health care facilities. Give wisdom to leaders in healthcare and governance that they may make the right decisions for the well-being of people. We pray in gratitude for all those in our country who will continue to work in the days ahead in so many fields of life for the sake of us all. Bless them and keep them safe. O God of creation and life, we place ourselves in your protection. May the mantle of your peace enfold us this day and tomorrow. Hear us, O God of life …

Petitioner: God of mission, you have redeemed and anointed your people through baptism and united us in the death and resurrection of Jesus for a life-giving mission. Remind us of promise and possibilities, of failure and forgiveness, of doubt and faith as through you, our Triune God, we seek to build a community of faith, hope, and love. Send your Spirit of wisdom, guidance, and courage, renew our ministries and our callings, and make our joy in you complete. Hear us, O God of life…

Pastor: Sustaining God, as you bring life even out of death, hear our call for your abundant life, make our prayers part of your new creation, and guide us with the hope of joy in your presence for the sake of the crucified and risen one, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

People: Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

Pastor: Let us pray with confidence in the words our Saviour gave us:

People: Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those
who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours,
now and forever. Amen.

BENEDICTION

Pastor: The God of life, who has called you to eternal life in Christ,
lift you up and restore you to wholeness.

People: Amen.

Pastor: Jesus Christ, the Living Word,
bless you and send you to be his witnesses.

People: Amen.

Pastor: God the Holy Spirit, who renews the whole earth,
refresh, restore, support, and strengthen you this day and always.

People: Amen.
