Almighty God,
you have raised Jesus from death to life
and crowned him Lord of all.

or acknowledged his rule in our lives.
We have gone along with the ways of the world
and failed to give him glory.
Forgive us and raise us from sin,
that we may be your faithful people,
obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who rules the world and is head of the church, his body. Amen.
