(an acrostic prayer)
Revealing Father, You who show Yourself to us through Your Son, Your Spirit, and Your Word, we come to worship You!
Evoke in us a renewed sense of Your kingdom in this time and this place and in us today, Father.
Visit us with Your Spirit as we come to praise You, to sit before You, and to hear You today, O God!
Open our overused minds and lead us beside still waters as You bid us come and rest in you, O Lord.
Lead us from building our own kingdoms into Your kingdom that You have built for each of us who worship You, Father.
Use our presence here today, Father, as a springboard for allowing us to be alongside workers with You in Your kingdom.
Transport us from the constant blathering of this world into Your Word and from there into Your truth, O Lord.
Infuse us with the urgency of finding Your will for us and for those we influence each day, Father.
Overflow into us the power of Your kingdom as we seek to be known as Your kingdom here in this place.
Narrate through us the message of Your kingdom as we live and breathe and have our being in this place.
Allow us to be seen as Your children, working in Your kingdom while on this earth, Father.
Release us from the bindings of our selfish pride and bind us by Your love, Father.
Yearning to be more like You for having been in Your presence, Father, show us how to be You to those you bring to us daily.
Pause us, Father, from the busyness of our present lives, that we might be able to distinguish Your voice.
Remind us that You chose not to speak in the whirlwind, or the earthquake or the thunder, but in the stillness and quietness of Your presence, O Lord.
Attune our ears to hear in the stillness, Father. Help us to know that if we listen carefully, the silence is beautiful.
You, O Lord, are to be worshiped and adored. We want to say, “We love you, Lord. Thank You for loving us first.”
Empty us, Lord, of those things that keep us from giving our all to You. Fill us with You, today, Father.
Return to us, Father, the joy of our salvation. Bend Your ear to us and refresh us, Your children today, O God.
We pray in the name of Your Son, our savior, Jesus Christ. Amen!
