Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep?
Get up! Do not reject us forever. (Ps. 44:23)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
O God, we give glory to you all day long
and constantly praise your name. (Ps. 44:8)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
O God, we have heard it with our own ears—
our ancestors have told us
of all you did in their day,
in days long ago (Ps. 44:1)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble.
The Lord protects them
and keeps them alive.
He gives them prosperity in the land
and rescues them from their enemies.
The Lord nurses them when they are sick
and restores them to health. (Ps. 41:1-3)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
“O Lord,” I prayed, “have mercy on me.
Heal me, for I have sinned against you.” (Ps. 41:4)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
Our hearts have not deserted you.
We have not strayed from your path. (Ps. 44:18)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who lives from everlasting to everlasting.
Amen and amen! (Ps. 41:13)
