Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
As the deer longs for streams of water,
so I long for you, O God.
I thirst for God, the living God.
When can I go and stand before him? (Ps. 42:1-2)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
May all who are godly rejoice in the Lord
and praise his holy name! (Ps. 97:12)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
The Lord is king!
Let the earth rejoice!
Let the farthest coastlands be glad.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
every nation sees his glory. (Ps. 97:1,6)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
Why should I fear when trouble comes,
when enemies surround me?
They trust in their wealth
and boast of great riches.
But as for me, God will redeem my life. (Ps. 49:5-6,15a)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
Lord, you are mine!
I promise to obey your words!
With all my heart I want your blessings.
Be merciful as you promised. (Ps. 119:57-58)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
Your decrees have been the theme of my songs
wherever I have lived.
I reflect at night on who you are, O Lord;
therefore, I obey your instructions.
This is how I spend my life:
obeying your commandments. (Ps. 119:54-56)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
You who love the Lord, hate evil!
He protects the lives of his godly people
and rescues them from the power of the wicked.
Light shines on the godly,
and joy on those whose hearts are right. (Ps. 97:10-11)
