Father, as we come before You today in the name of Jesus, we declare that You are God and earnestly we will seek You. Father, it’s our desire to see You in the sanctuary; to behold Your power and Your glory. Father, Your love is greater than life and our lips will glorify You. We will praise You as long as we live and in Your name we will lift up our hands. You have satisfied our souls as with the riches of foods and with singing lips our mouths will give You praise.
Heavenly Father, in this day we will give thanks to You Lord and we will call upon Your name; we will make known among the nations what You have done and we will proclaim that Your name is exalted. We will sing to You Lord for You have done glorious things and we will let it be known to all the world. Father, today we will shout aloud and sing for joy. We will declare that great is the holy one of Israel among us.
Father, we come before You in Jesus’ name with shouts of joy, we worship You with gladness that fills our hearts and with songs of joy before the Lord. Father, we declare today that the Lord is God and that we are Yours; we give You praise because we know that we are Your people and the sheep of Your pasture. Father, we enter Your gates with thanksgiving and Your courts with praise, we give thanks to You God and we praise Your name. Father, we Your people declare today that the Lord is good and His love endures forever. We praise You because Your faithfulness continues through all generations.
As we come before You in Jesus’ name we Your people will praise You with our innermost being, Father, we praise Your Holy name. We will not forget Your benefits and we give You praise and thanksgiving because You have forgiven our sins and healed our diseases. WE praise You because You have redeemed our life from the pit and crowned us with compassion. Father, we praise You because You satisfy our desires with good things and You renew our Youth like the eagles. Father, we praise You and honor You for You alone work righteousness for the oppressed, You are compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in love.
Father, as the deer pants for streams of water, so our soul pants for You, God, our soul thirsts for You. We hunger for You, Father, and we long to come and meet with You.
Father, we pray today in Jesus’ name that You would send forth Your light and Your truth, let them guide us, let them bring us to Your holy mountain to the place where You dwell. Then we will go to the altar of God, to God our joy and our delight.
Father, we pray in Jesus’ name and ask that You would clean our hands and purify our hearts so that we may ascend to the hill of the Lord and stand in Your holy place.
Holy Spirit, we pray that You would reveal to us any unconfessed sin in our hearts. Father, we confess our sins before You and we thank You because You will be faithful and just and will forgive us. Father, we pray that You would purify us from all unrighteousness; and we ask it in Jesus’ name.
(1 John 1:9)
Father, we give You thanks and praise for the shed blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which has brought us near to You and allows us to approach Your throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and grace in time of need.
(Ephesians 2:13; Hebrews 4:16)
Father, we thank You that we can worship You because we have been justified by faith and we now have peace with You Father through our Lord Jesus Christ and we have been given access to grace by faith in Him.
As we come before You in Jesus’ name we thank You for Your word and we pray, Father, as Your word is spoken to us in the service today, it will be as the rain and snow from heaven do not return to heaven without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, as it provides seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so Your spoken word will not return to You void, but it will accomplish what You desire and achieve in us the purpose for which You have sent it.
Father, in Jesus’ name we pray that as we hear Your message today which will come from the word of God, our faith will be increased. We ask, Father, that You would use Your word which is living and active and sharper than any double edged sword to rightly divide us even to soul and spirit, joint and marrow. Use Your word, Father, to expose the thoughts and the attitudes of our hearts.
(Romans 10:17; Hebrews 4:12)
Holy Spirit, we ask that in our worship service today, You would fill us with Your power so that when we leave and go out into the world, we may speak the word of God with boldness and effectiveness; and we ask it in Jesus’ mighty name.
