Jesus all for Jesus all I am and have and ever hope to be. All of my ambitions hopes and plans I surrender these into your hands. For its only in your will that I am free. Jesus all for Jesus, all I am, and have, and ever hope to be
-Robin Mark (1957- )
Prayer of the Bible
In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears. Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations also of the mountains trembled and quaked because he was angry. Smoke went up from his nostrils, and devouring fire from his mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from him. He bowed the heavens and came down.
-Psalm 18: 5-9
(Free expression of praise and thanksgiving to God)
Confession of Sin
I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.
-Psalm 32: 5
(Time of silence for confession of sin)
The Words of Jesus
Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
(Think deeply on these life-giving words of Jesus)
Prayers for Ourselves and Others
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
-Ephesians 3:21 The Message
(Time to bring before God our own needs and the needs of others)
I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, the Father may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
