Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
Hear me as I pray, O Lord.
Be merciful and answer me! (Ps. 27:7)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
Let all that I am praise the Lord.
O Lord my God, how great you are!
You are robed with honor and majesty. (Ps. 104:1)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
May the glory of the Lord continue forever!
The Lord takes pleasure in all he has made!
The earth trembles at his glance;
the mountains smoke at his touch. (Ps. 104:31-32)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
You cause grass to grow for the livestock
and plants for people to use.
You allow them to produce food from the earth—
wine to make them glad,
olive oil to soothe their skin,
and bread to give them strength. (Ps. 104:14-15)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
Do not turn your back on me.
Do not reject your servant in anger.
You have always been my helper.
Don't leave me now; don't abandon me,
O God of my salvation! (Ps. 27:9)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
The one thing I ask of the Lord—
the thing I seek most—
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
delighting in the Lord's perfections
and meditating in his Temple. (Ps. 27:4)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
Wait patiently for the Lord.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. (Ps. 27:11)
