Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
In my distress I prayed to the Lord,
and the Lord answered me and set me free. (Ps. 118:5)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heaven!
Praise him for his mighty works;
praise his unequaled greatness! (Ps. 150:1-2)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
The earth is the Lord, and everything in it.
The world and all its people belong to him. (Ps. 24:1)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
Because you are my helper,
I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
your strong right hand holds me securely. (Ps. 63:7-8)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
Be good to your servant,
that I may live and obey your word.
Open my eyes to see
the wonderful truths in your instructions. (Ps. 119:17-18)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
who do not worship idols
and never tell lies.
They will receive the Lord's blessing
and have a right relationship with God their savior. (Ps. 24:3-5)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever. (Ps. 118:29)
