Prayer On Sunday

O God our King, by the resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ on the first day of the week, you conquered sin, put death to flight, and gave us the hope of everlasting life: Redeem all our days by this victory; forgive our sins, banish our fears, make us bold to praise you and to do your will; and steel us to wait for the consummation of your kingdom on the last great Day; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Psalm 67

May God be merciful to us and bless us, *

show us the light of his countenance and come to us.
Let your ways be known upon earth, *

your saving health among all nations.
Let the peoples praise you, O God; *

let all the peoples praise you.
Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, *

for you judge the peoples with equity
and guide all the nations upon earth.
Let the peoples praise you, O God; *

let all the peoples praise you.
The earth has brought forth her increase; *

may God, our own God, give us his blessing.
May God give us his blessing, *

and may all the ends of the earth stand in awe of him.
