Adoration

Psalm 8:1 O LORD, our Lord, 

How majestic is Your name in all the earth, 

Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!

Revelation 15:3–4 And they *sang the song of Moses, 

the bond-servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, 

“Great and marvelous are Your works, 

O Lord God, the Almighty; 

Righteous and true are Your ways, 

King of the nations! 

4 “Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name? 

For You alone are holy; 

For ALL THE NATIONS WILL COME AND WORSHIP BEFORE YOU, 

FOR YOUR RIGHTEOUS ACTS HAVE BEEN REVEALED.” 

Confession

Psalm 51:14–17 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, 

the God of my salvation; 

Then my tongue will joyfully sing of Your righteousness. 

15 O Lord, open my lips, 

That my mouth may declare Your praise. 

16 For You do not delight in sacrifice, otherwise I would give it; 

You are not pleased with burnt offering. 

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; 

A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.

Renewal

Psalm 37:3–7 Trust in the LORD and do good; 

Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. 

Delight yourself in the LORD; 

And He will give you the desires of your heart. 

5 Commit your way to the LORD, 

Trust also in Him, and He will do it. 

6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light 

And your judgment as the noonday. 

7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; 

Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, 

Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.

Petition
