Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
O Lord, I have come to you for protection;
don't let me be disgraced. (Ps. 71:1)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.
Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! (Ps. 96:3-4a)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
I have told all your people about your justice.
I have not been afraid to speak out,
as you, O Lord, well know.
I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart;
I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power. (Ps. 40:9-10a)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him, and he will help you. (Ps. 37:5)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
Keep me from lying to myself;
give me the privilege of knowing your instructions. (Ps. 119:29)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions;
I will put them into practice with all my heart.
Make me walk along the path of your commands,
for that is where my happiness is found.
Turn my eyes from worthless things,
and give me life through your word (Ps. 119:34-35,37)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
But as for me, how good it is to be near God!
I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter,
and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.
