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

You take good care of us, Gracious God, and you keep watch over us day and night.
Our help comes from you, O Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

You preserve us from evil and keep us safe in your presence;
Our help comes from you, O Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

You watch over our going out and coming in now and forever;
Our help comes from you, O Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Who is like our God, the One who formed us, and the One who carefully watches over his children?
Our help comes from you, O Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

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;
Help us to pray always and not lose heart.

You will not delay long over your people who cry out to you day and night;
May your justice come on earth as it is in heaven.

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 continue in what we have learned and firmly believed:
Give us ears to hear your Word.  

We believe that all Scripture is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness;
Give us ears to hear your Word.  

Equip us for every good work, that we might be competent and fulfill our calling;
Give us ears to hear your Word.  

Grant us discernment, that we might receive sound teaching even when it displeases us;
Give us ears to hear your Word.  

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.
