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

Let the whole earth shout with joy before the Lord;
We lift up our voices with joy and singing: Great is our Lord, the King!

Your judgments are true, and all of creation awaits your rightful rule;
We lift up our voices with joy and singing: Great is our Lord, the King!

In righteousness will you judge the world and all the peoples, with equity;
We lift up our voices with joy and singing: Great is our Lord, the King!

Who is like our God, King over all the earth, ?
We lift up our voices with joy and singing: Great is our Lord, the King!

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.

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;
Strengthen us to turn from evil and learn to do good.

You are a God of justice, who calls us to correct oppression and speak on behalf of the downtrodden;
Grant us the will to follow your example.

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…

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:
May we not grow weary in doing good.

Keep us from idleness, that we may not be busybodies;
May we not grow weary in doing good.

Enable us to do our work quietly in a manner that pleases you;
May we not grow weary in doing good.

Grant us discernment to fulfill our vocations with industry and hard work;
May we not grow weary in doing good.

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.
