Week 21 - October 23, 2016

•Adoration•

“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim; each one had six wings: with two they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. And one cried to the other and said, ’Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!’”
(Isaiah 6:3)
“The Lord God is the Alpha and the Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
(Revelation 1:8)

Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship. 

 

•Confession•

“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins.”
(Isaiah 43:25) 

Pray that the Spirit would search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed sin. Thank God for his complete forgiveness in Jesus Christ. 

 

•Renewal•

“’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
(Matthew 22:37–40) 

Pause to reflect on this call to love. Meditate on the love that God has shown you and pray that God would teach you to love in response. 

 

•Petition•

Pray for grace to grow in your spiritual disciplines, in your battles in the spiritual realm, in your personal character, and in your daily work and duties. 

 

•Intercession•

May I remember those in prison as though bound with them, and those who are mistreated, since I myself am also in the body.
(Hebrews 13:3) 

Pray for the following: 
     •the poor and hungry
     •those persecuted and oppressed
     •those in authority
     •peace among the nations

 

•Thanksgiving•

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are downtrodden, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
(Luke 4:18–19)

Jesus declared that he came to fulfill this prophecy from Isaiah. Give thanks to God for his good work in Jesus Christ. 

 

•Communal Prayer•

"I will enter Your gates with thanksgiving
And Your courts with praise;
I will give thanks to You and bless Your name.
For the Lord is good
And Your lovingkindness endures forever;
Your faithfulness continues through all generations.” (Psalm 100:4–5)
