Prayer Topic #10:
A Declaration of Kingdom Praise and Worship
Psalm 147, John 4:1-24
Reflections of the Heart:
Our God is an awesome God. He is kind, tenderhearted, and merciful. Our Father loves us with an everlasting love and He is always concerned about our welfare. All that we need He provides through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. God should always be revered and adored. He should have our utmost respect. Today, bless the Lord. Lift up your praises to the One who is the living God; our God who is our Father.
Almighty Father, we thank You for the exuberant praise and worship during our Worship Celebrations. Thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ, who makes our worship experience possible. Holy Spirit, we thank You for Your manifested presence saturating our Church Family wherever we gather to exalt the name of the King of kings and Lord of lords. As a Church Family, we thank You for the Worship and Arts department. Thank You for the gifts, talents, and grace that You’ve given each of them. You are great and perform wondrous deeds. You alone are God. We praise You, for Your loving kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness. Father, through all generations You have been our home! Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, from beginning to end, You are God.
Royal Father, as kingdom citizens, we declare that we will shout with joy to You. We will worship You with gladness and come before Your presence singing joyfully. We will connect with our Virtual Worship Celebration acknowledging that You are the Lord, our God! You made us, and we are Yours. We are Your people, the sheep of Your pasture. Our hearts will join in with the worship with thanksgiving and come into Your courts with praise. We will give thanks to You and praise Your name. Lord, You are good; Your unfailing love continues forever and Your faithfulness to each generation. In our living rooms, cars, or wherever we will lift our voices to produce a Kingdom praise that is pleasing to Your ears. As You inhabit the praise that we offer to You, we declare that salvation, healing, restoration and deliverance will come forth. By faith, we declare that every Church Family member will worship You in spirit and truth. By doing this, we will become the true worshippers You are seeking.
Holy Spirit, I will worship God with obedience in the following areas of my life:
Holy Spirit, since our worship is a direct reflection of our relationship with the Father, help us each to examine that relationship and make whatever adjustments need to be made so that our praise may be pleasing to the King. Help us to begin to live lifestyles of praise and not wait until we get to work or a church building to begin to exalt the King. Sanctify and purify our hearts so that our worship is a sweet aroma to God, our Father, as we sing melodious songs of praise to Him. Holy Spirit, continue to anoint our entire Worship and Arts department as they lead us in worship each week. Strengthen and encourage them daily.
Merciful Father, forgive us for allowing our emotions and circumstances to dictate the level of praise that we offer to You. Forgive those who intentionally skip over praise and worship. Forgive those who do not actively participate in praise and worship. Forgive those who are not living lives that reflect their love for You. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help us all not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
Sovereign Lord, God Almighty, You are glorious! You are the Rock; Your deeds are perfect. Everything You do is just and fair. You are the faithful God who does no wrong. Now to You, the King, eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. In Jesus’ name, amen.
