Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
Help us, O God of our salvation!
Help us for the glory of your name.
Save us and forgive our sins
for the honor of your name. (Ps. 79:9)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
We your people, the sheep of your pasture,
will thank you forever and ever,
praising your greatness from generation to generation. (Ps. 79:13)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?
When God restores his people,
Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice. (Ps. 53:6)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
Let your compassion quickly meet our needs,
for we are on the brink of despair. (Ps. 79:8b)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
When I refused to confess my sin,
my body wasted away,
and I groaned all day long.
Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me.
My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat.
Finally, I confessed all my sins to you
and stopped trying to hide my guilt.
I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.”
And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone. (Ps. 32:3-5)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
I will advise you and watch over you. (Ps. 32:8)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, all you who obey him!
Shout for joy, all you whose hearts are pure! (Ps. 32:11)
