Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
Those who plant in tears
will harvest with shouts of joy.
They weep as they go to plant their seed,
but they sing as they return with the harvest. (Ps. 126:5-6)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!
What joy! (Ps. 126:3)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
When the Lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,
it was like a dream!
We were filled with laughter,
and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
“What amazing things the Lord has done for them.” (Ps. 126:1-2)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
It is useless for you to work so hard
from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
for God gives rest to his loved ones. (Ps. 127:2)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
How joyful are those who fear the Lord—
all who follow his ways! (Ps. 128:1)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
Unless the Lord builds a house,
the work of the builders is wasted.
Unless the Lord protects a city,
guarding it with sentries will do no good. (Ps. 127:1)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
May the Lord continually bless you from Zion.
May you see Jerusalem prosper as long as you live.
May you live to enjoy your grandchildren.
May Israel have peace! (Ps. 128:5-6)
