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

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

The Lord is King, enthroned upon the cherubim.
Tremble before him, all people, and confess his great and awesome Name.
O mighty King, lover of justice,
You have established equity;
You will execute justice and righteousness in all the earth.
We will proclaim your greatness O Lord our God,
And worship you in your holy place,
For you, O Lord, are the Holy One.
And you are worthy of all praise, glory, and honor from every man, woman, and child.
May the greatness of your name be magnified in all the earth.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We pray for the world,
For the many people who do not yet know you,
For those who scoff or think lightly of the precious name of Jesus,
And for those who have not received your word.
Lord Christ, you are the Holy One of God.
The beloved Son of the Father,
In whom he is well pleased.
May all nations listen to you
And give you right and due honor and glory.

I invite your prayers for specific countries and individuals in need of the Gospel.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We lift our voices with your worldwide church,
And we praise you that you have revealed yourself to your people.
Come, Holy Spirit, and fill your church with your unfailing love,
That we might live in the truth of your love.
I invite your prayers for the church throughout the world.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We belong to you, Lord Christ,
For you have bought us with a costly price.
We desire to glorify you in all that we do.
Bring the cleansing light of your presence into every area of our lives, especially…

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We pray for the poor, the oppressed, the hungry, and the sick;
The broken and despairing;
The lonely and those afflicted by doubt and fear.
We think of orphans and widows, prisoners and slaves,
Those struggling with addiction and pain.
Have mercy on all that you have made, O Lord!
In your infinite compassion and wisdom,
Proclaim your rule of righteousness to the ends of the earth.
Lift up those who are bowed down,
Set their feet on sure ground,
That many would see and put their trust in you.
For you alone are the hope of the afflicted,
You alone are the one who restores all things.

I invite your prayers for all who suffer in body, mind, or spirit, remembering especially the people of Haiti.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We thank you for your church.
How beautiful is the bride of Christ, stretching back throughout the ages and across the world, crossing boundaries of time and place!
We remember now those who have gone before us, those who have died in the faith, trusting that they are in your care.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

Transform us, O Lord, to be a people who clearly and brightly reflect the light of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Through whom we humbly pray, Amen.

    The selection of readings come from The Book of Common Prayer, and I link to the ESV text in the posts. Let me know if I can clarify further.
