O Lord our God, You alone are the Most Holy King and Ruler of all nations.
We pray to You, Lord, in the great expectation of receiving from You, O Divine King, mercy, peace, justice and all good things. Protect, O Lord our leaders, our families and the land of our birth.
Guard us we pray, Most Holy One. Protect us from our enemies and from Your just judgment. Forgive us, O Sovereign King, our sins against You.
Jesus, You are a King of Mercy. We deserve Your just judgment but have mercy on us, Lord, and forgive us. We trust in Your Great Mercy.
O most awe-inspiring King, we bow before You and pray: may Your reign, Your Kingdom, be recognized throughout the earth. Amen.
