*This is an exercise intended to be used with your leadership team, or even perhaps the students you know. You may adapt it to best fit your community’s needs.
Sit together quietly in a group. Read aloud each prayer topic and the following verse. Pray aloud as the Spirit leads. Allow comfortable time in silence for people to pray.
Awesome is God from his sanctuary; the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people. Blessed be God!
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you.”
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
