Psalm 130:5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.
In a week where we are intentionally looking at prayer we don’t want to just talk about prayer, we want to pray together! In the comments please share requests and areas we can rejoice with you — also know you are invited to share as much or as little as you’d like. Please come back as more prayers are added and pray for each other by either commenting “I prayed” or writing out a prayer. All forms are welcome! No pressure to pray like others, this isn’t about how we pray or words we use. It’s about praying for each other. How can we pray for you today?
God of boundless mercy, I come empty-handed, confessing the bankruptcy of my works and drawing on your infinite grace by faith. Thank you for the gift of righteousness in Jesus, who was made to be sin and curse in my place, on the cross, making me right with you. In the Savior’s name, Amen.
(Prayer from the Canons of Dort, printed in Seeking God’s Face)
