Adoration

Not to us, O Lord, not to us,
But to Your name give glory,
Because of Your lovingkindness and truth. (Psalm 115:1)

Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God,
Because praise is pleasant and beautiful. (Psalm 147:1)

Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.

Confession

You have set our iniquities before You,
Our secret sins in the light of Your presence. (Psalm 90:8)

Ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed sin. Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank Him for His forgiveness.

Renewal

May I fight the good fight of faith and lay hold of the eternal life to which I was called when I made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, may I keep this command without blemish or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in His own time. (1 Timothy 6:12–15a)

May I be diligent to present myself approved to God, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.

You, O Sovereign Lord, deal well with me for Your name’s sake;
Because of the goodness of Your mercy, deliver me. (Psalm 109:21)

Affirmation

Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God; unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. The wind blows wherever it pleases, and we hear its sound, but we cannot tell where it comes from, or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. (John 3:3, 5–6, 8)

Through the Spirit, by faith, I eagerly await the righteousness for which I hope. (Galatians 5:5)

Pause to reflect upon these biblical affirmations.

Thanksgiving

I will give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name,
And make known to others what He has done.
I will sing to Him, sing praises to Him,
And tell of all His wonderful acts. (1 Chronicles 16:8–9)

I know that the Lord has set apart the godly for Himself;
The Lord hears when I call to Him. (Psalm 4:3)

Pause to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving.

Closing Prayer

God highly exalted Christ Jesus and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9–11)

Christ is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. (Colossians 1:18)
