green leaf iconFrom Psalm 113

Give praise, you servants of the LORD; *

praise the Name of the LORD.

Let the Name of the LORD be blessed, *

from this time forth for evermore.

From the rising of the sun to its going down *

let the Name of the LORD be praised.

The LORD is high above all nations, *

and his glory above the heavens.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

O God, you will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are fixed on you;

for in returning and rest we shall be saved;

in quietness and trust shall be our strength.

We pray for the just and proper use of your creation;
For the victims of hunger, fear, injustice, and oppression.

For all who are in danger, sorrow, or any kind of trouble;
For those who minister to the sick, the friendless, and the needy.

Hear us, Lord;

For your mercy is great. Amen.

O heavenly Father, who has filled the world with beauty:

Open our eyes to behold your gracious hand in all your works;

that, rejoicing in your whole creation,

we may learn to serve you with gladness;

for the sake of him through whom all things were made,

your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your Name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those

who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial,

and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours,

now and for ever. Amen.

Blessed Savior, at this hour you hung upon the cross,

stretching out your loving arms:

Grant that all the peoples of the earth may look to you and be saved;

for your mercies' sake. Amen.
