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

We give thanks to you, O Lord, with our whole hearts because of your love and faithfulness;
We will sing of the ways of the Lord – that great is the glory of the Lord.

You answer us when we call, and you strengthen us by your presence;
We will sing of the ways of the Lord – that great is the glory of the Lord.

Though we walk in the midst of trouble, you keep us safe;
We will sing of the ways of the Lord – that great is the glory of the Lord.

You will not abandon the work of your hands, for you will make good your purposes for us;
We will sing of the ways of the Lord – that great is the glory of the Lord.

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

I invite you to add your own praises to the Lord.


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;
Fill us with your Holy Spirit.

Root us in your presence; build and establish your church in the faith;

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

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


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, remembering especially…

We glory in your triumph over your enemies and ask that you would keep us from the snare of deception;
Teach us to discern your word to us.

Lord Jesus Christ, we thank you for your forgiveness and praise you for your resurrection life, freely given to us;

We worship you in the fullness of your deity.

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.


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.
