As you prepare to seek God, we will lead you for the next few minutes in a time of worshipping Him.
We want you to have time alone with your God. During this time you can worship Him however you see fit. We will have pages to prompt you during this time of worship if you choose to use them. You can advance through these pages by clicking the right arrow. After 4 minutes you will hear a chime indicating that it will be time to move on to the next area of preparation. Enjoy your time doing what you were designed to do: worship your God!
John 15:5-7, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”
Lord, draw me to you. Help me to abide in you. I know that the power of prayer is not in my hands but yours. Thank you, Father, that your desire is to be with me.
John 15:9-11, “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”
Jesus, I know that I am able to love you because you loved me first. Thank you for sharing the love of the Father with me. Keep me in your love; help me to remain in your love with you. Jesus, I want my joy to come from you, through you. Let nothing in this world distract me from the true joy that comes from sitting still in your love.
John 15:13-15, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
Father, I want to listen to you. Jesus, I want to listen to you. Holy Spirit, I want to listen to you. Would you speak to me first, before I petition you? God, you are worthy of my heart and devotion. Create in me a heart that glorifies you.
Psalm 29:1-4, “Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.”
Lord you are strong. Lord, glory goes to so many wrong places in this world—it all belongs to you. Teach me how to worship you. Lord, the majesty of creation reminds me of your majesty. I am in awe of your power, majesty, holiness, glory, and strength. I know I was made to worship you.
Isaiah 40:28-31, “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Strengthen me, Lord. Lift me up so I can soar, run, and walk. You are my strength even in my weakness. You are my hope, Lord, please renew my strength.
Psalm 18:1, “I love you, Lord, my strength.”
