Our Father in heaven. We come to you this morning, and we cry out, “Abba, Father” we cry. We come to you in the name of your eternal Son, Jesus Christ. We come as adopted sons and daughters. We pray not to manipulate you into loving us; no, we come in prayer because, before the foundation of the world, you set your affection upon us.
Our Father in Heaven Hallowed be Your Name. From the rising of the sun to its setting, may Your Name be praised and be great among the nations! Among Behdini Kurds and Haitians. Among the unreached in Macedonia. Hallow your name Lord. Advance the gospel of Jesus Christ. Declare your glory among the nations, your marvelous works among all the peoples! Holy is the Lord, God Almighty! The earth is filled with his glory.
O Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name, Your Kingdom Come, May all the ends of the earth remember and turn to You, and all the families of the nations worship before You. For kingship belongs to You; You rule over the nations. Oh, save Your people and bless Your heritage! Be our Shepherd and carry us forever! You are our King, O God! You are the King of all the earth! Your throne is forever and ever! May we seek to advance the gospel. Holy Spirit, help us be strong and courageous. Give us the boldness to share the good news of Jesus with friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors and classmates that we might make disciples that delight in the supremacy of Jesus Christ. Use us to make disciples of the impoverished and marginalized. Use our brother Jeremy McClain as he plants Mercy of Christ Fellowship. Continue to prosper the work of Garden City Church and One Hope in Baltimore.
Your Kingdom Come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Make us to know Your ways, O Lord. Teach us Your paths. Teach us to do Your will. Remind us that your commandments are for our good. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. Not our will, but Yours be done!
Give us this day our daily bread. We come to you completely and utterly dependent upon you, O Lord. You graciously provide all that we need to seek and enjoy you. Remind us that we have is a good gift from you. We are thankful for the many ways you provide for us – clothes, food, friends and so much more. Satisfy us with righteousness and remind us You are our portion forever. We pray for those looking for jobs. Grant them patience and perseverance. We pray for M&C – may their love for you and each other grow as they display Christ and the church in their marriage. We pray for B and S and L and F. Grow them in holiness and fill their joy full as they look to Jesus Christ. We pray for L and E and L and J. Grant the these brothers and sisters grace to delight in Christ as they help others do the same.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. We confess our iniquity; we are sorry for our sin. Have mercy on us, O God. Help us put to death what is earthly in us: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. We confess our anger and harsh words and greed and substance abuse. Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity, and cleanse us from our sin! For Your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon our guilt for it is great. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and You the LORD has laid on him the Christ the iniquity of us all. For our sake You made him, Jesus, who knew no sin, to that in him we might become the righteousness of God. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus – Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Lead us not into temptation…but deliver us from Evil We do not ask that you take us out of the world, but that you keep us from the evil one. Restore us; let Your face shine, that we may be saved. For the glory of Your name, deliver us and atone for our sins, for Your name’s sake. For Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever and ever.
