Call to Prayer: Psalm 34:3
Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together!
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”
Jesus, only because you are the one who goes before us can we forgive. We choose to forgive as you forgive—as you already have forgiven us. We cannot withhold forgiveness from others any more than you do for us. We’re sorry that we do. May we forgive with open hands those who have sinned against us in big ways and small ways. You see our hearts. You know how hard this is. But we chose to walk in obedience even in this. By your Spirit, help us to forgive abundantly as we have been forgiven abundantly. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Scripture Reading from the Epistles: Revelation 21

Praying the Mission of Exchange: “Enjoy the Glory of God”
Attribute of God to Praise: God is Immanent
We confess that we often live as people doing life on our own. This is never the case, as you have promised never to leave us or forsake us. Thank you that you are near to the broken hearted and that your nearness is our good. Build in us a reflex to look quickly for you, and to see you clearly.
Commission to Serve the King:
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly.Never be wise in your own sight.
