Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
From the depths of despair, O Lord,
I call for your help.
Hear my cry, O Lord.
Pay attention to my prayer. (Ps. 130:1-2)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
I long for the Lord
more than sentries long for the dawn,
yes, more than sentries long for the dawn. (Ps. 130:6)

Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
But the Lord is good;
he has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly. (Ps. 129:4)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
I am counting on the Lord;
yes, I am counting on him.
I have put my hope in his word. (Ps. 130:5)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
Lord, if you kept a record of our sins,
who, O Lord, could ever survive?
But you offer forgiveness,
that we might learn to fear you. (Ps. 130:3-4)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
Lord, my heart is not proud;
my eyes are not haughty.
I don't concern myself with matters too great
or too awesome for me to grasp. (Ps. 131:1)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
O Israel, put your hope in the Lord—
now and always. (Ps. 131:3)
