Prayer, day 1768: In honor of Kamehameha IV and Emma, Rulers of Hawai'i

King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, remembered this day in our calendar of saints.

Blessed Jesus,
extend your arms of love around us,
that we remember we are your own.
May we rejoice in the fellowship of God,
and sing hallelujahs
with all of creation
for all your saving deeds, O Holy One. 

Send forth the Spirit
to fill us with zeal for service
and a thirst for wisdom, we pray.
Give us a reverence for the earth
and that dwells therein, O God,
for all are miraculous works
of your mighty hand. 

When we see a hand offered to us today, Lord Christ,
let us take it,
and rejoice in the common bonds
that unite us as your children. 

Cover those who are in need
with the mantle of your grace and mercy,
and grant to the departed eternal rest.
Most Merciful One,
we lift up these beloveds before You,
and ask your blessing upon them.
