Prayer For Praise And Worship

Dear Lord, I pray that You would bring into Your house men and women from all walks of life to worship You today. I pray that the poor, the rich, the downcast, the refugee, the single mother, the business owner, the sinners, and the saints, would all gather today to sing the praises of Your matchless name. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You that I have a chance today to bring praise to Your name. Help the praise of Your name to always be on my lips. I want to lead our church in worship today with gladness of heart and joy. Lord, bless the words we sing, and our sacrifice of praise today. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.

Awesome One, creator of all,
the light of your glory
fills the heavens,
the breath of your Spirit
blows through the skies,
stars above stand silent witness
to the power of our God.
By your word all things were made.
By your breath are all things sustained.
By your hand we were moulded
as a potter caresses the clay,
formed from earthly dust
into an image of the divine.
By your Grace we stand here,
your creation worshiping its creator
with this our sacrifice of praise.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His love is everlasting
and extends to all creation.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
Bringing wholeness,
and peace beyond understanding.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His arms open wide
welcoming home the prodigals.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His promises are sure
His kingdom shall last forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!

Jonah 2:7-9: When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the LORD; and my prayer went up to You, into Your holy temple. Those who regard worthless idols forsake their own Mercy. But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD. (Read more of the context of Jonah's prayer from inside the great fish in our article on Jonah.)

Ephesians 1:15-19: Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His might power.

We praise you, Father of all;
We thank you for calling us to be your people,
And for choosing us to give you glory.
In a special way we thank you for...

State your intention here.

Cleanse our hearts and our lives
With your holy word
And make our prayer pleasing to you.
Guide us by your Spirit
As we follow in the paths of Jesus our brother.

All glory and praise are yours, Father,
For ever and ever.


Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
We praise you and give you glory:
We bless you for calling us to be your holy people.

Remain in our hearts,
And guide us in our love and service.
Help us to let our light shine before others
And lead them to the way of faith.

Holy Trinity of love,
We praise you now and for ever.
