That the way of our gracious God may be known upon the earth,

Let us pray for

N., Primate/Presiding Bishop of N.,
and all primates and presiding bishops;
for members of the Anglican Consultative Council;
for Josiah Idowu-Fearon, Secretary General,
for the staff at the Anglican Communion Office in London, England,
and the United Nations offices in Geneva and New York.
{pause for silent prayer}
That the Spirit, the Advocate, sent by God
may teach them, and all of us,
bringing to remembrance
all that God’s power has accomplished in Christ,
we join our voices in prayer: (R)


Let us pray for the newly baptized, especially N.

by fear or hunger,
poverty, sickness, or any other adversity,

The Presider or Intercessor concludes the Prayers of the People:

We exult in your love, O God of the living,
for you made the tomb of death
to be the womb of the new creation.
You have anointed the universe
with the fragrant Spirit of your risen Christ.
Make us joyful witnesses to this good news
that all humanity may perceive your goodness
and one day gather at the feast of new life.
We ask this through Jesus Christ the risen Lord.
