King of all the earth,
Creator of the universe,
Holy Triune God,
From everlasting to everlasting, you are Lord.

All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and your saints shall bless you!
You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

Your kingdom is glorious and your dominion endures throughout all generations.
You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

You are faithful in all your words and kind in all your works.
You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

You uphold all who are falling and raise up those who are bowed down.
You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

The eyes of all look to you, and you give us food in due season;
You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

You are near to all who call on you in truth;
You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

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:
Strengthen us with power through your Spirit in our inner being;
Come, Lord Christ, and dwell in our hearts through faith.

So root and ground us in your love that we are strengthened to comprehend the breadth and length and height and depth of your love that surpasses knowledge;
Fill us with all the your fullness.

Grant that every member of the church may truly and humbly serve you;
Quicken us to seek you in prayer, O Father of all.

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.

We pray for this congregation:
When we are overwhelmed with the need around us;
When we are paralyzed by fear;
Embolden us with your miraculous provision.

We believe in your resurrection power;
Grow our faith in your infinite capability.

Deliver us from hardness of heart;
Gladden our spirits with your courage-giving presence.

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.
