The Priest introduces the prayers:
Dearly beloved, the glory of God is all about us. With thankful and adoring hearts, let us pray.
We pray for the Church of God, that she may reveal more fully God's abiding love for everyone, by drawing closer to the person of Christ. Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.
We pray for the peace and well-being of the world, that all leaders of East and West may follow the star which leads to true peace and justice. Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.
We pray for the sick and those who care for them, that Christ's light may shine upon them. Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.
We pray for those departed this life, that they may come to see the light of God's glory. Lord, hear us. Lord, graciously hear us.
We pray with our Lady as we say: Hail Mary .
In the presence of Christ, we make our personal petitions in silence to God our Father.
The Priest concludes the prayers:
Father, when the Kings came to your Son, your love was revealed for all mankind. May we, in our day, reveal your love for everyone. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
