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

You are merciful and full of loving-kindness and great compassion;
We will rejoice, for your grace, O Lord, has overflowed for us.

You have washed us thoroughly from our wickedness and cleansed us from our sin;
We will rejoice, for your grace, O Lord, has overflowed for us.

Against you alone have we sinned, and to you alone do we look for restoration;
We will rejoice, for your grace, O Lord, has overflowed for us.

Who is like our God, the One who takes away the iniquity of his people, the One who gives them clean hearts and right spirits?
We will rejoice, for your grace, O Lord, has overflowed for us.

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;
May we truly rejoice over repentant sinners.

You have lavished us with your mercy and purposed to save us sinners;
Display your perfect patience in us.

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.


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…


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, that we would believe in and receive your grace:
Christ Jesus, fill us with your faith and love.  

We desire to love others, to joyfully accept all who would seek you;
Christ Jesus, fill us with your faith and love.

Reveal to us the false idols of our own hearts, and grant us grace to cast them down in repentance;
Christ Jesus, fill us with your faith and love.

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God;
To you be honor and glory forever and ever .

We look to you, Lord of all, mindful of our helpless
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.
