Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
O Lord God of Heaven's Armies, hear my prayer.
Listen, O God of Jacob. (Ps. 84:8)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
I will exalt you, my God and King,
and praise your name forever and ever.
I will praise you every day;
yes, I will praise you forever.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
No one can measure his greatness. (Ps. 145:1-3)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness;
they will sing with joy about your righteousness. (Ps. 145:7)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
When you open your hand,
you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in everything he does;
he is filled with kindness. (Ps. 145:16-17)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
The Lord is merciful and compassionate,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. (Ps. 145:8)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
A single day in your courts
is better than a thousand anywhere else!
I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God
than live the good life in the homes of the wicked. (Ps. 84:10)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
For the Lord God is our sun and our shield.
He gives us grace and glory.
The Lord will withhold no good thing
from those who do what is right.
O Lord of Heaven's Armies,
what joy for those who trust in you. (Ps. 84:11-12)
