Solomon’s Porch Prayer Book

For the

Week of May 31st, 2020

Instructions: The Gospel of Christ opens up the Throne of God to us and makes it a place of welcome instead of a place of judgement. It is the believers distinct call and privilege to enter into the Sovereign King’s Court and commune with Him in His presence. As a disciple (one who orders their life around this reality in Christ) it is our call to worship the Father, through the Son, and in the Spirit. Worship is the center of our life and the fountain from which our whole life should flow.

  1. Set aside at least 30 minutes every day to commune with your heavenly Father.
  2. Take 8-10 minutes and read the Scripture you choose  or one of the ones provided below. Read it as many times as you can in the 10 minute period.
  3. Take 8-10 minutes and sit before the Lord and listen…. bring your life before the Lord and let the Lord through the passage you just read search through your heart.
  4. Take 2-4 minutes and confess any sin that the Lord has shown you during this time. Pray the Corporate Prayer given below to close this time.
  5. Take 8-10 minutes and pray for others (make a list of people and needs on Sunday evenings)

Start out with 30 minutes, but look to increase to at least an hour over the course of your growth in grace. It’ll be hard at first, but eventually you’ll get to the place where you will not want to leave and an hour will not seem long enough.

Psalm 113:1-3

Praise the Lord! Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord! Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised!

Corporate Prayerfamily praying

Based on Psalm 113:1-3

Father,

We, Your servants, praise You as our Lord and our God. We bless Your Name now and we will bless it ever after. Let the Gospel go forth, let the nations be glad, let Christ be exalted, and let the earth be filled with Your glory and Your praise.

In Jesus Name, AMEN

Prayer of Confession for the Week

Taken from “The Valley Of Vision: Spiritual Growth” published by Banner of Truth, edited for corporate use by Jeremy Mack

ETERNAL FATHER,

It is amazing love, that thou hast sent thy Son  to suffer in my stead, that thou hast added the Spirit to teach, comfort, guide, that thou hast allowed the ministry of angels to wall me round; All heaven subserves the welfare of a poor worm. Permit thy unseen servants to be ever active on my behalf, and to rejoice when grace expands in me. Suffer them never to rest until my conflict is over, and I stand victorious on salvation’s shore.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
