We pray for and give thanks to God for this neighborhood of Getty Square, for all who live and work here, for all who come here for goods and services, for those who are homeless and hungry, for the Sharing Community, Salvation Army, YWCA and the YMCA, the Yonkers Fire and Police Departments, and all who work to help others. We pray for healing for those who struggle with addictions, and physical and mental disabilities. Please bless our vision with compassion and love, so that this Congregation may be the hands and feet of Christ in Getty Square.  Amen

Prayer of Lament O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family and especially in this Episcopal Diocese of New York as we lament our past complicity in slavery, racism, and the unfair treatment of all peoples; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We hold in our prayers: The family of Sen. John McCain, the Sirota and Ressmeyer families mourning the passing of Roger Ressmeyer, those injured in the flooding in India, Donna and Tom Duffy, Mary Kowalski, The Rev. Canon Blake Rider, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Ival Debride, Anthony Muranelli, Harriette Forster, Eve Shepard, Cecile Davis, Beverly Anthonyson, Corey Belinski, Bernice Walder, Marion Eich, Carmen Hanchard, Sal Bah, Antoinette Forster, Hope Mackey, Mamazane Xulu, Carol O’Brien, Fatima Mishk, Kimberly DeShon, Shelley Henderson, Naomi Henderson, Aida Carino, Liliana Moschetta, Tom O’Connor, Monica Harmon, Beverly Sims, Ralph Tremonte, June & Waine Kniffen, Peter Walsh, and The Rev. Canon Claudia Wilson. We pray for Anthony Johnson as he continues his diaconal discernment, for immigrant families who have been separated as they cross over into the US, for tighter gun control, for those in war-torn countries, for those impacted by volcanoes, wild fires, especially California and Greece, flooding throughout the world, and for our President, our country, our first responders, all refugees and immigrants especially the children, and our military.

Prayer for 9/11
O Almighty God, who brings good out of evil and turns even the wrath of your children towards your promised peace: Hear our prayers this day as we remember those of many nations and differing faiths whose lives were cut short by the fierce flames of anger and hatred. Hasten the time when the menace of war shall be removed. Cleanse both us and those perceived to be our enemies of all hatred and distrust. Pour out the spirit of peace on all the rulers of our world that we may be brought through strife to the lasting peace of the kingdom of your Son; Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

We pray for those who have died: The Rev. Canon Percy Alphonso Brathwaite, Evelyn Parker, Paul Taylor, Sen. John McCain, Roger Ressmeyer, Neil Simon, Aretha Franklin, Clyde Mahoney, Katherine Knickerbocker, all those the world over who have died from war, terrorism, and natural disasters including flooding and wildfires, and we lament those who have died over the centuries due to slavery, lynching, racism and the unequal and unjust treatment of peoples in this country.
