Let us pray that all God’s people become more like Christ our King: God our Father, lover of people, we recognize our King crowned with thorns and enthroned on a cross. This King is our leader without an army or earthly might. Like him, may we choose love and compassion as our only power and humble service as our only greatness. May this be the way his kingdom grows within us and among us, until you lead us unto your lasting joy.
We ask you this through Christ our Lord who eternally dwells with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, now and forever. Amen.
