The firstborn of the dead,
The ruler of the kings of the earth! (Rev. 1:5)

To him be glory and dominion forever and ever! Amen. (Rev. 1:6.)

 

 

Collect for Christ the King Sunday

God of Eternity, we stand with the courage of those who insisted, even in perilous times,
that not even the most powerful rulers of this earth hold our eternal destiny in their hands.
We are secure in Christ, whose reign is just, whose power is endless, and whose love is unfathomable.
God of Eternity, we join the chorus of saints who continue to declare that Christ is our King.
Amen.
