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

You are the Alpha and the Omega, who is and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty;
Mighty is the Lord who dwells on high.

You are the King, robed in splendor and strength;
Mighty is the Lord who dwells on high.

Your throne is established from before the world began;
Mighty is the Lord who dwells on high.

Your testimonies are very sure, and holiness adorns your house, forever;
Mighty is the Lord who dwells on high.

This is our King and our God.  Praise him, all you people, for he is our help and our salvation.  I invite you to add your own praises to the Lord.


You are worthy, 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;
That we might hear and keep your word.

We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons;
That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.

You, Lord Christ, have loved us and freed us from our sins by your blood;
To you belongs all glory and everlasting dominion.

You have made us an eternal kingdom and priests to our God and Father;
Let all peoples, nations, and languages serve you.

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.


God of all love and peace, we come to you in faith, offering you access into every area of our lives.

You are the Ancient of Days, full of holy glory;
Nothing in all creation is hidden from your sight.

You see all that concerns us, and our hearts are laid bare before you;
Lord Christ, we depend upon your grace in our lives.

You are the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.
We worship you and offer you all that we are.

You, Christ the King, bear witness to the truth.
Give us ears to listen to your voice.

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.
