O God, you are the Lord.
The Creator of the heavens and the earth,
The Giver of breath and spirit to all who live,
The One who makes a covenant with his people,
Who opens eyes that are blind,
Who releases prisoners from the darkness of their dungeons.
There is none like you, O Lord our God,
And you are worthy of all praise, glory, and honor from every man, woman, and child.
May the greatness of your name be magnified in all nations.

Silence

Jesus is the light of the world
May the whole earth know his brightness.

We pray for the world,
For the many people who do not yet know you,
For those who scoff or think lightly of the precious name of Jesus,
And for those who have not received your word.
Speak to them, O Lord,
And grant them ears to hear the good news of your deliverance.

I invite your prayers for specific countries and individuals in need of the Gospel.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We pray for the poor, the oppressed, the hungry, and the sick;
The broken and despairing;
The lonely and those afflicted by doubt and fear.
We think of orphans and widows, prisoners and slaves,
Those struggling with addiction and pain.
Have mercy on all that you have made, O Lord!
In your infinite compassion and wisdom,
Proclaim your rule of righteousness to the ends of the earth.
Lift up those who are bowed down,
Set their feet on sure ground,
That many would see and put their trust in you.
For you alone are the hope of the afflicted,
You alone are the one who restores all things.

I invite your prayers for all who suffer in body, mind, or spirit.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

We thank you for your church.
How beautiful is the bride of Christ, stretching back throughout the ages and across the world, crossing boundaries of time and place!
We remember now those who have gone before us, those who have died in the faith, trusting that they are in your care.

Silence

Jesus, light of the world
May the whole earth know your brightness.

Transform us, O Lord, to be a people who clearly and brightly reflect the light of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Through whom we humbly pray, Amen.
