URGENT CALL TO PRAYER: DAY SEVEN

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive all
PRAISE

“Hallelujah!  Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are His judgments…Hallelujah!  For our Lord God Almighty reigns.  Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory!” — Revelation 19:1-2, 6-7

 
Note: For this, our seventh day of prayer, our format is slightly different than the first six days.  Today, we will pray and fast for seven hours.  So the following prayer is laid out hour by hour.  Included in the direction for some of the hours, I have adapted Puritan prayers from Valley of Vision* to help us articulate the cry of our hearts. They will be in italics. I have also made suggestions if you would like some additional direction.

THE FIRST HOUR—WORSHIP

We praise You as the One who declares Your greatness and glory in Creation. The heavens that are pitched like a tent for the sun speak of Your vastness. The sun that never ceases to rise, then set, speaks of Your faithfulness.  The billions of stars that sparkle like diamonds in the dark expanse of the night sky reveal Your vast, personal knowledge, as You call each one by name. The boundaries on the shore that You set for the waves of the sea speak of Your laws that are for our good.  The sparrows that you see fall, and the lilies that You clothe, point to your compassionate, individualized, personal attention.

We praise You as our Creator, for we are wonderfully and fearfully made in Your image, with a capacity to know You in a personal relationship. You know our thoughts before they become words. You numbered our days and recorded them before we were born. You know when we go out, and when we come in.  When we rise and when we lie down.

We worship You, the Lamb who was slain, who alone is worthy of all praise.  Our hearts yearn for the day when we will be gathered around Your Throne and see with our own eyes the angels and people whose numbers are too great to count, and hear with our own ears the multitude crying out in such unity that they sound as one loud voice… Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise. The entire Universe will roar in acclamation and praise of You!

I worship You______________

Suggestion: Use Scripture to help you give expression to your worship, such as: Psalm 19, 23, 24, 27, 46, 91; Isaiah 40; Revelation 5 and others of your own choosing
