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

Your heavens declare your glory, and we are astonished at your creative power;
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You are the victorious King, conquering all your foes, and silencing our enemy;
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have crowned humanity with glory and honor and given them dominion over your works;
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

All creation joins together to exalt you in magnificent display;
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

This is our God, the Holy One.
Come before him with thanksgiving and offer him the sacrifice of praise.

Silence.

How worthy you are, 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;
Holy Spirit, guide us into your truth.

You have taken away our guilt and atoned for our sin;
Send us to do your will, O Lord, for we belong to you.

Grant that every member of the church may truly and humbly serve you;
That your name may be glorified by all people.

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, remembering especially our brothers and sisters in Rwanda.

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,
Give us grace to rejoice in our sufferings.

Holy Spirit, come and work endurance, character, and hope in us.
Enable us to joyfully receive the love you freely pour into our hearts.

Deliver us from hardness of heart;
Show forth your glory in all that we do.

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.
