Let us pray after the Lord’s Model
“‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’”
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Therefore [we will] confess [our] sins to each other and pray for each other so that [we] may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
[Because You] deliver me from [my sin], O God, O God of my salvation, … my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
