“Blessed is the king that comes in the name of the Lord, peace in heaven and glory in the highest.”

Let us pray:

Glory be to You, Lord God, king of the universe; glory be to You, Lord God, dwelling in light and majesty;

Glory be to You, Lord God, beyond our highest thoughts;

Glory be to You from the company of heaven who see You face to face;

Glory be to You from your people on earth who have seen Your salvation.

Glory be to You, Lord God; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Almighty Lord, in Jesus you have called us to walk as children of the light; but we have preferred our own way, the way of darkness; we have not been willing to let the light of Christ into every part of our lives; we have not been willing to respond with wholehearted obedience and total dedication.

Forgive us because we find it easy to profess faith but hard to translate it into action; because we say so much but do so little. By your renewing love, grant us assurance of pardon and strength to live up to our calling; through Jesus Christ our saviour. And now we pray to you in the words that Jesus taught his disciples saying:

Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil: for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. For ever. Amen.
