Call to Prayer: Psalm 145:16
You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every livingthing.
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: “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”
We have sinned, Lord. We know that and you know that. So, in your grace, have mercy on us, for we know that we cannot fix ourselves. Search us, O God, and know our heart. Try us and know our thoughts. And see if there be any grievous way in us, and lead us in the way everlasting. Jesus, we pray this for ourselves and for all your people. We thank you, God, that you care enough about us to continue the work of changing our hearts, and conforming us into the image of your son. Amen.
Scripture Reading from the Epistles: Romans 8

Praying the Mission of Exchange: “Enjoy the Glory of God”
Attribute of God to Praise: God is Omnipotent
We praise you God that you are all powerful. As people with felt limitations, we cannot even fathom what this means but thank you that your power and might have no limits at all. You are able to do anything, at anytime, anywhere. We pray you would plant this truth deep down in our hearts as a body of Christ. We ask that this would change the way we pray as a people, that our hearts would be confident in You. Thank you that nothing is impossible for our mighty Father.
Commission to Serve the King:
Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.
