Christ the King - The Fourth Sunday of The Kingdom
Prayer for the week
God of gentleness and humility;
Kingship speak's of glory and prestige, of power and deference due.
As Jesus set aside his heavenly status to show his love for us,
may those who seek authority on earth be courageous,
their leadership characterised by honesty and unselfishness;
that we may trust and respect them,
and support them in our prayers.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven
that he might rule over all things as Lord and King:
keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit
and in the bond of peace,
and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet;
grant this for the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be the kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
