Pray the Bible

PRAYER-O-RAMA 2017 continues here on GUWG where for the next week we’ll be praying through some of the most inspiring sections of Scripture together.

So unplug, unwind, un-whatever-it-is-you’re-doing and prepare to spend some quality time with the Lord.

We’ll start today with a pair of prayers from someone the Bible refers to as a “man after God’s own heart” – David:

MORNING PRAYER

Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.

In the morning, Lord,
you hear my voice;
in the morning
I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.

Lord, this morning I pray for:
[add your requests here]

(From Psalm 5)

EVENING PRAYER

Answer me when I call to you,
my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

Tremble and do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.

Many, Lord, are asking:
“Who will bring us prosperity?”
Let the light of your face
shine on us.
Fill my heart with joy.

In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety.

Lord, tonight I pray for:
[add your requests here]

(From Psalm 4)

AMEN!
