Call to Prayer: Psalm 86:9
All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God
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”
Lord, we are your servants, and it is to be our joy to work as a servant in your kingdom. We echo Peter in saying where else would we go? Only you have the words of life. Only in you is there life to be had. Your kingship is the only one that restores our hearts and this world. Retrain our hearts and our wills to bow with joy to what and how and where you lead—to want what you want. We lay down the lesser things—and they’re all lesser things—for this better in every way kingdom you’re building. We say together it’s better. In your name, Amen.

Mission of the Church in the World: Pray for the people groups in Central and South America
Even with their rich heritage of missions, the Americas are home to more than 550 million people living without Jesus. Help us exalt Christ, equip the church, and embrace the nations. Pray the millions of unreached people will hear and respond to the good news.
Commission to Serve the King:
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
