Prayer Petition

Scripture Reading:  Psalm 136; Joel 2

Scriptural Prayer:
Praise and Worship

Father, how excellent is Your Name in all the earth.  Blessed be Your glorious Name, which is exalted above all blessings and praise.  You alone are the Lord. Father, we thank You for the Bishop, Pastors, Leadership Coaches, and members of the Center of Praise Ministries International.  Thank You, Lord, for Your blessings upon our Church, families, homes, and jobs.  Additional Praise and Worship Scriptures:  Psalm 92:1-5

Praying God’s Will

Father, we have blown the trumpet in Zion and consecrated ourselves before You.  We have sanctified the congregation, assembled the elders, and gathered the children and nursing infants.  Therefore, let it be unto us according to Your Word.  Lord, we expect the double portion.  We confess that You will turn to us and leave Your blessings.  We confess that all Your blessings will come upon us and overtake us because we have obeyed Your voice.  We believe that You will command blessings on our storehouses and on the works of our hands.  Lord, we confess that You will restore unto us that which was lost, and we will eat in plenty and be satisfied.  Lord, we confess that You will pour out Your Spirit upon us, and You will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth.  Additional Scriptures for praying God’s Will:  Deuteronomy 11:13-27

Praying the Request

Father, please give us Your Spirit of wisdom and revelation in Your knowledge.  Cause the eyes of our understanding to be enlightened so that we may know what is the hope of Your calling, what are the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of Your power toward those who believe.  Lord, please help us to be faithful to the vision of our Church.  Increase our faith and cause our hearts to remain steadfast in prayer and fasting throughout the year.

Praying for Forgiveness
Father, please forgive us for the sins of disobedience, hypocrisy, selfish ambitions, pride, gossip, and perversion.  Forgive us for not praying and fasting consistently.  Forgive us for not studying Your Word.  Forgive us for not operating in the fruit of Your Spirit. Lord, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive.

Praying for Protection
As a church family, lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.

Praise and Worship
Lord, You are our stronghold.  The heavens declare Your glory, and the skies proclaim the work of Your hands.  You are the Lord Most High, the great King over all the earth.  Lord,  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Additional Praise and Worship Scriptures:  Psalm 24:8-10
