Moment of Silence
I have calmed and quieted my soul (Ps. 131:2a)
Request for Presence
I cry out to God; yes, I shout.
Oh, that God would listen to me! (Ps. 77:1)
Our Father, who is in Heaven...
Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
break out in praise and sing for joy!
Sing your praise to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and melodious song,
with trumpets and the sound of the ram's horn.
Make a joyful symphony before the Lord, the King! (Ps. 98:4-6)
Express thankful praise for who God is and what he has done
Your Kingdom come, your will be done...
You are the God of great wonders!
You demonstrate your awesome power among the nations. (Ps. 77:14)
Pray for God's kingdom to increase locally and globally
Give us this day, our daily bread...
We are merely moving shadows,
and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.
We heap up wealth,
not knowing who will spend it.
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you. (Ps. 39:6-7)
Bring practical needs and anxieties to the Father
Forgive us our sins...
I know, O Lord, that your regulations are fair;
you disciplined me because I needed it.
Now let your unfailing love comfort me,
just as you promised me, your servant. (Ps. 119:75-76)
Spend a moment in quiet confession and pray for healing of relational conflict
And lead us not into temptation...
So each generation should set its hope anew on God,
not forgetting his glorious miracles
and obeying his commands. (Ps. 78:7)
Request the Spirit's wisdom and protection to walk in God's ways
O God, your ways are holy.
Is there any god as mighty as you? (Ps. 77:13)
