Scripture to Pray Through: Psalm 57
1 Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. 2 I cry out to God Most High, to God, who vindicates me. 3 He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me—God sends forth his love and his faithfulness. 4 I am in the midst of lions; I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts—men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords. 5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
From the Proposed Covenant
First, we promise to walk in all holiness, godliness, humility, and brotherly love, as much as in us lies, that our communion might glorify God and bring joy to all peoples.
Prayers of Adoration
Take a few minutes to meditate on the glory of God. What is He like? What has He done? Jot down your thoughts, then praise Him for who He is.
Prayers of Aspiration
What would it look like if our city knew God in all His glory? How would our relationships be different? our homes? our workplaces? Imagine how our world would change if God’s glory were universally acknowledged and celebrated. Then take time to pray that the Omnipotent One would make His glory known through you, through us.
