King of all the earth,

Creator of the universe,

Holy Triune God,

From everlasting to everlasting, you are Lord.

 

Who is He, this King of glory?

The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.

 

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it;

The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.

 

Give us clean hands and pure hearts;

The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.

 

Transform us by the truth of your salvation;

The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.

 

Who is He, this King of glory?

The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.

 

This is our God. Praise him, all you people, for he is our help and our salvation. I invite you to add your own praises to the Lord.

 

Silence.

 

You are worthy, Holy God, to receive all our praise. We worship you in the glory of your perfect Trinity and ask for grace to steadfastly believe and proclaim your unity.

 

We pray for your holy catholic church;

Prepare us to be your pure and spotless bride.

You are the one who makes all things new, the Alpha and Omega, the one who promises to dwell with His people;

We eagerly await the promise of your new creation.

 

We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;

That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.

 

I invite you to add your own prayers for the worldwide church.

 

Silence.

 

Creator of the earth, you spoke the world into existence and sustain all things by your life giving word. Consider the toil and sorrow of the people of the earth and, in your compassion, have mercy on the world.

 

We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world;

That there may be justice and peace on the earth.

 

We pray for the poor, the persecuted, the sick, and all who suffer;

For the refugees, prisoners, and all who are in danger;

Relieve and protect them, O Lord, and grant them eternal hope in you.

 

Teach us how to rightly steward the gift of your creation,

That the resources of the world would be used to your honor and glory.

 

I invite your prayers for the needs of the world.

 

Silence.

 

God of all love and peace, we come to you in faith, offering you access into every area of our lives.

 

You, Lord Christ, are the Resurrection and the Life;

Enable us to respond to your call out of death and into life.

 

Grow our appetites for your heavenly promises;

Lord, stamp eternity on our eyes.

 

You are the Lord for whom we have waited;

We will be glad and rejoice in your salvation.

 

We look to you, Lord of all, mindful of our helplessness;

Glorify your name in the midst of our need.

 

I invite you to cast all your cares and concerns on the Lord, remembering that He cares for you.

 

Silence.

 

We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;

May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

 

We believe in you, Lord Christ.

We cry out to you, Father God.

We receive your witness, Holy Spirit.

Abide with us as we abide in you this week and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
