The Collect/Prayer of the Day
Almighty, everlasting God, you anointed your Son to be Priest forever and King of all creation. Now and to the end of time, lead us and all the world to know the reign of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Christ comes today as King. He is the consummation of all creation. He will come at the end of time when God is to become all in all. He comes to us each day in every person we meet. So reform your life; the kingdom is at hand! Conform your life to Christ's, for he is coming as King and Judge!
