Let every nation sing your praise, every nation on earth.

Favor and bless us, Lord.
Let your face shine on us,
revealing your way to all peoples
salvation the world over.

Let nations sing your praise
every nation on earth.

The world shout for joy,
for you rule the planet with justice.
In fairness you govern the nations
and guide the peoples of earth.

Let the nations sing you praise,
every nation on earth.

The land delivers its harvest,
God, our God, has blessed us.
O God, continue your blessing,
may the whole world worship you.

I Corinthians 3:16-17, 21-23
Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?
If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person. For God’s temple is holy,
and you are that temple. So let no one boast about human leaders. For all things are yours,
whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present
or the future-all belong to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs God.

May we remain in you and you in us.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s
deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.

O God of the nations, we join with you in our longing for peace among all peoples of the earth. We acknowledge our failings to promote peace, and we ask pardon, as we pray:
~Make us instruments of your peace.
We pray that dialogue among peoples will help us overcome distrust and cynicism: We pray that human ingenuity will benefit the whole human family: We pray that collaboration will replace destructive competition between countries: We pray that mutual respect among nations and people will replace exploitation: We pray that concern for the common good will permeate negotiations among nations:


PRAYER Just God, you never fail to bless those who walk with integrity. Teach us to travel the paths of our lives trusting in your care, and make us eager to walk in your truth. We ask this in the name of Jesus who is the way, the truth and the life. Amen.

May God’s blessing be upon us. Amen
May God’s light lead us in the way of Righteousness. Amen.
May our lives be patterned on Christ Jesus. Amen.
