PRAISE GOD, WHO IS WORTHY OF PRAISE!

“For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; He is to be feared about all gods…worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness.”                                                                                                      I Chronicles 16:25

Lord, You are worthy of all of our praise! We lift up our eyes and hearts to You. We worship You and not ourselves, others or our circumstances. Open our eyes to see more of Your perfection, Your character, Your heart. From You comes the theme of our praise.

 

 PRAY FOR BELIEVING HEARTS

“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your hearts that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”                                                                                                               Romans 10:9

Jesus, we ask that You pour out Your Spirit over our city, bringing conviction of sin and a radical turning to You for salvation. Let ___________ confess with their mouth that You are Lord and believe in their heart that the Father raised You from the dead, bringing salvation and new life.

 

PRAY FOR HEARTS FREE FROM ANXIETY

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”                                                      I Peter 5:7

Lord, free us from worry, anxiety and the desire to be in control of our lives. We surrender to You, knowing that You care for us. May the children of our city come to know You, trust Your character, and learn to give their anxious thoughts and feelings to You in exchange for Your peace. Thank You for caring so deeply for them.

 

Please pray for the students and staff of Maumee Schools.
