In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (The sign of the cross should be made in remembrance of your baptism)

O King of the Nations, and their desire, the Cornerstone making both one, come and save the human race, which You fashioned from clay. Amen.

The Magnificat

“My soul magnifies the Lord,
     and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
    For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
 for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
    and holy is his name.
 And his mercy is for those who fear him
    from generation to generation.
 He has shown strength with his arm;
    he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
    and exalted those of humble estate;
 he has filled the hungry with good things,
    and the rich he has sent away empty.
 He has helped his servant Israel,
    in remembrance of his mercy,
 as he spoke to our fathers,
    to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Our Father, who 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 trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,the power, and the glory,

For ever and ever.  Amen.

Personal Prayers and Petitions

Silence

Almighty God, who in Jesus Christ has given us a kingdom that cannot be destroyed, forgive us our sins, open our eyes to God’s truth, strengthen us to do Your will, and give us the joy of Your Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

King of kings and Lord of lords, we ask that you would unify Your Bride, the Church, and use us as a tool to draw all nations to Your salvation.  Keep our eyes and hearts fixed on the goal of preparing our world for our coming King, Jesus Christ our Lord.  Endeavor us to do good, to do no harm, and to love You as You have loved us.   Lord, be pleased to deliver us.  O God, make haste to help us.   Come quickly, Lord Jesus.  Amen.
