In faith, let us pray to the Lord, saying….

Hear us Risen Lord,
Our resurrection and our life.

You, O Lord Most High, are the great King over all the earth.
You reign over the nations;
You sit upon your holy throne,
And we will sing praises to you, O God our King, with all our skill.
You have done great things for us.
Indeed, you have given us a glorious inheritance:
For Jesus has triumphed!  Jesus is exalted!

Silence

Hear us Risen Lord,
Our resurrection and our life.

Lord Jesus Christ,
You are the Lamb who was slain,
The one who is coming soon,
The Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
We praise you, Almighty God,
For you reign forever and ever,
And by your blood you have ransomed people from every tribe and language and people and nation,
We join our voices with the church throughout the world, saying together, “Jesus has triumphed!  Jesus is exalted!”

I invite you to pray for the work of the church, remembering especially people who have not yet heard the good news about Jesus.

Silence

I invite your prayers for Advent Anglican.

Silence

Hear us Risen Lord,
Our resurrection and our life.

O Lord, you know the world in which we live.
You dwelt among us and lived the suffering of the human condition.
You took upon yourself the weight of injustice and evil.
You see the entire world in this moment and no instance of pain escapes your attention.

We consider your cross, Jesus, and how hopeless it once appeared,
And we rejoice in your transforming power that brought about victory and new life from such a moment of darkness and despair.
We will say it again and again, “Jesus has triumphed!  Jesus is exalted!”
We trust in your everlasting triumph and look to you with hope.

I invite your prayers for those who suffer throughout the world and for those ministering to them in Christ’s name.

Silence

Hear us Risen Lord,
Our resurrection and our life.

Lord Jesus Christ,
Give us your perfect unity,
That the world may know that you are a God of love.
And so mark us with this love,
That your glory will be revealed to all people.
Teach us how to fear you and serve you faithfully with all our hearts.
We offer our lives to you, Lord of all, desiring to surrender every corner of our person to your lordship:

I invite you to cast all your worries and concerns on the Lord.
Silence
I invite you to commit the work of your hands to the Lord.
Silence
I invite you to ask for discernment in all your decisions this week.
Silence
I invite you to offer up any other prayers and intercessions.
Silence

Hear us Risen Lord,
Our resurrection and our life.

How good it is to be part of your church, stretching back to those who first believed and spreading throughout the corners of the world.
We thank you for the millions of our brothers and sisters throughout the ages who together have believed and proclaimed your victory.
We join our voices with theirs to say it again and again, “Jesus has triumphed!  Jesus is exalted!”
Our hearts are encouraged by the faithful examples of those who have died in the faith,
And we remember them now, trusting that they are in your care.

Silence

Hear us Risen Lord,
Our resurrection and our life.

We pray to you also for the forgiveness of our sins.

Silence

Leader & People:
Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father;
in your compassion forgive us our sins,
known and unknown,
things done and left undone;
and so uphold us by your Spirit
that we may live and serve you in newness of life,
to the honor and glory of your Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
