Weekly Prayer November 5, 2018

beforeallthings

Jesus, you are the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. By you all things were created, in heaven and earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. You are before all things, and You hold all things together. You are the head of the body, your church. You are the beginning, the firstborn of the dead. In everythin...

chosenportion

God, Jesus has taught us to say, "You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you." Your saints are the excellent ones; our chief delight is found together with them. Sorrow will multiply to those who chase after others gods. So we will not lift our hearts to any other thing. You are our chosen portion, our cup of blessing, the keeper of all that we hold dear. The boundarie...

defender

Lord, defender of the defenseless, Father to the fatherless, you work righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. You revealed your ways to Moses, showed forth your mighty acts to Israel. You are the Lord merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love. You do not keep your anger forever. You do not deal with us as our sins deserve. Rather you de...

chaosofthisworld

Holy One of Israel, you sit enthroned over the chaos of this world, seated as King over all the earth. You said to Israel just as you say to us that you bore the nation on eagles wings; you brought Israel to yourself, rescuing her from her enslavement. Though all the world was yours, You made her your own treasured possession. All that you asked of her was to obey your voi...

laidfoundation

All knowing God who declares things from of old, before they even come to pass you announce them, for your name's sake you deferred your anger, for your praise you did not cut us off. Instead, you refine us in the furnace of affliction. For your own sake, you do it, your glory you will not give to another. You say, "I am he, I am the first and I am the last." You laid the ...

alladversity

O God, we have heard of the deeds you have done in the past. With your own hand you drove out your enemies and you planted Israel in the promise land. You toppled tyrants and set your people free. Not by their own power or wisdom did they achieve anything. Their arm did not save them but you did, by the light of your shining face, for you delighted in them. And so we say, ...

to see you as you are is our greatest joy and our greatest sorrow

Holy God, like Isaiah we see you high and lifted up, seated on your throne. To see you as you are is our greatest joy and our greatest sorrow. For we are unclean, long have we been in our sins, even our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. Our lives fade like a wilting leaf, our iniquities carry us away like the wind. No one calls upon your name anymore. No one rou...

See the sights

God our Father, our King, Jesus our blessed brother, Savior and Lord. Your scriptures tell us of a day when there will be a new heaven and new earth. You tell us that a new holy city will come down out of heaven, prepared as bride adorned for her husband. And then a loud voice shall declare, "behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them and they w...
