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

You are full of glory and strength, and we worship you in the beauty of your holiness;
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.

You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power;
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.

By your will, all things exist and are created;
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.

The whole earth is full of your glory;
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.

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

Silence.

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;
Guide us into your truth.

You have taken away our guilt and atoned for our sin;
Send us to do your will, O Lord, for we belong to you.

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, remembering especially our brothers and sisters in Rwanda.

Silence.

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.

Silence.

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 might follow the leading of your Spirit.

Deliver us from hardness of heart;
Show forth your glory in all that we do.

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.

Silence.

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.

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.

We belong to you, Lord Christ,
For you have bought us with a costly price.
We desire to glorify you in all that we do.
Bring the cleansing light of your presence into every area of our lives, especially…

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.
