April 26, 2020 Third Sunday of Easter

Welcome



Prayer of the Day

P: Today we re-enter the Easter story and the journey to Emmaus with expectation that Christ will also reveal himself to us in sights and sounds, in words and symbols, in bread and wine.

Let us pray:

Risen Christ, walk with us this day, be our companion and guide, be our teacher and friend, be our host and servant bringing to us your gifts of faith, peace and hope and deep joy. Amen.


The Holy Gospel

Luke :24:13-25


Prayers of the People

P: Let us pray for the whole people of God in Christ Jesus, and for all who are in need.

P: We trust that, like the disciple, we will be able to stand and tell the whole message about resurrection life that: Love is stronger than hate, life has the final word over death, and that hope invades our world beyond what we can see with our eyes. Lord in your mercy.

C: hear our prayer.


P: We watch with anxiety as your children around the world face this pandemic. In the midst of our fear and confusion there are also voices of reason and hope; perhaps they speak in whispers, but they speak nonetheless. May those whispers rise to shouts that proclaim the way forward with words of healing and love. Lord in your mercy,

C: hear our prayer.


P: Walk with your people who are crushed by disease and grief. Reveal yourself to us as the source of faith and hope. Heal your people we pray. Lord in your mercy,

C: hear our prayer.


P: We give thanks for those who rise early in the morning to feed us with necessities for a frightened world; for those who committed to the healing of your children; for those who keep watch amidst the sick and dying in countless hospitals around the world; for all who speak words of compassion in the face of fear. Lord in your mercy,

C: hear our prayer.


P: It is a complicated and frightening world. Strengthen us as we stand and bear witness to life, the life of the Risen One, Jesus Christ Our Lord.

C: Amen.


Holy Communion and Closing:

P: The Lord be with you.

C: And also with you.

P: Lift up your hearts.

C: We lift them to the Lord.

P: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

C: It is right to give God our thanks and praise.
