Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
I lift my eyes to you,
O God, enthroned in heaven. (Ps. 123:1)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
What if the Lord had not been on our side? (Ps. 124:1a)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever. (Ps. 125:2)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
Our help is from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth. (Ps. 124:8)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
O Lord, do good to those who are good,
whose hearts are in tune with you. (Ps. 125:4)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
We keep looking to the Lord our God for his mercy,
just as servants keep their eyes on their master,
as a slave girl watches her mistress for the slightest signal.
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion;
they will not be defeated but will endure forever. (Ps. 125:1)
