People of God, Jesus comes to bring God’s mercy to all people.
Therefore we are bold to sing our prayers
to the one whose reign is justice, peace, and joy:
All Hail to God’s Anointed v. 1
We pray for those who are captive to violence, oppression, and sin.
We pray for all who are hungry, sick, sorrowing, or afraid.
All Hail to God’s Anointed v. 2
We pray for everyone who longs for new beginnings.
We pray for those who celebrate and rejoice.
We pray for all who travel to be with families,
and we pray for those who celebrate the birth of the Savior alone.
We pray for the gift of peace, in our hearts and in our world.
All Hail to God’s Anointed v. 3
We pray for those in positions of power,
for those who have more wealth and power than they realize,
and for those whom we are called to serve.
All Hail to God’s Anointed v. 4
Let your kingdom come in this world, O God,
and let our hearts welcome the birth of the Holy Child,
who teaches us to pray as we say together:
The Lord’s Prayer
