Call to Prayer: Psalm 30:3
O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit.
Time of Gratitude
“Give thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph. 5:20).
Take this time to give thanks to God for three (3) specific things from the last 24 hours.
Praying the Lord’s Prayer: “For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever. Amen”
You promise that the sad and bad and hard of this world will one day be made perfectly whole. But that day is not today. While we wait, we ask that you would still show us your kingdom, your power, your glory here on earth. Encourage our hearts as we walk roads that do not yet make sense to us. Remind us that we are pilgrims here, our home is another Country. Lead us further in and further up, Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.

Southeast Asia is home to 2,728 people groups and the world’s largest Muslim population. Muslims, Buddhists, and animists are among the 7.7 million Southeast Asians who have never heard that freedom is found in Christ. Pray the millions of unreached people will hear and respond to the good news.
Commission to Serve the King:
By the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
