Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
I rise early, before the sun is up;
I cry out for help and put my hope in your words. (Ps. 119:147)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
Come, everyone! Clap your hands!
Shout to God with joyful praise!
For the Lord Most High is awesome.
He is the great King of all the earth. (Ps. 47:1-2)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
The rulers of the world have gathered together
with the people of the God of Abraham.
For all the kings of the earth belong to God.
He is highly honored everywhere. (Ps. 47:9)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
For he satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things. (Ps. 107:9)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out!
Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies. (Ps. 107:2)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
Does anyone want to live a life
that is long and prosperous?
Then keep your tongue from speaking evil
and your lips from telling lies!
Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it. (Ps. 34:12-14)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
What joy for the nation whose God is the Lord,
whose people he has chosen as his inheritance. (Ps. 33:12)
