Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Intercessions: Redemption – Br. Jonathan Maury

 

Jonathan Maury SSJEGod sent the Son into the world to heal and raise us up so that, empowered by the Spirit, we could surrender our whole selves and be reunited in the love of God. Looking forward to that day when God will gather all for the eternal banquet, let us pray saying, Jesus, Redeemer, fulfill your salvation in us.

You draw each disciple into that particular expression of community needed for the working out of their salvation. That together we may change and mature, in response to the Spirit who makes all things new, we pray, Jesus, Redeemer, fulfill your salvation in us.

From your fullness we all receive grace upon grace. That we may be brought into harmony with the very being and Triune life of God which is boundless sharing, we pray, Jesus, Redeemer,fulfill your salvation in us.

You call us to be of one heart and soul through our baptism into your death and rising and so give us a foretaste of the communion of saints. That we may be set us free from self-centeredness as members of one Body, we pray, Jesus, Redeemer, fulfill your salvation in us.

We were created to bless and adore God and to experience in worship our highest joy and deepest communion with one another. That the power of your word and the grace of feeding on you in the Eucharist may bind us together in love, we pray, Jesus, Redeemer, fulfill your salvation in us.

Our hope lies not in what we have done for God, but in what God has done for us. That we may offer our whole life to the glory of God, thankful for the mercy that has drawn us into the divine life, we pray, Jesus, Redeemer, fulfill your salvation in us.

All praise and thanks to the Father for the gift of the hope of glory. That the Spirit may open all that we are to the promise of eternal fulfillment beyond death, we pray, Jesus, Redeemer, fulfill your salvation in us.

With hearts enkindled by your redeeming love, O God, we now name before you the persons and concerns which you have placed in them:         (Silence)

O God, you relieve our necessity out of the abundance of your great riches: Grant that we may accept with joy the salvation you bestow and manifest it to all the world by the quality of our lives; through Jesus Christ our Redeemer. Amen.
