This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’”
Prayer Focus: Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
Worship: recognizing & responding appropriately to the greatness of God. [Ecc. 5:2]
Personal: To move our hearts to worship, will you engage in an ongoing conversation with God simply thanking Him for who He is and what He has done for you. You might want to start with that which we often take for granted [e.i. air to breath, roof over your head; food to eat] and work through every area of life.
Communal: We long to be more than a church that has “great worship music” but a community of passionate worshippers. Pray for our Sunday services that they would be a celebration of what we [the church] are living throughout the week. And finally pray that there would be a growing anticipation and excitement each time we gather together to worship.
