Psalm 50 Prayer

Here is another prayer, based on Psalm 50:1-5, that would be suitable for use in worship.

You are The Mighty One, God our LORD, and You call us and speak to us from the rising of the sun to its setting. As we meet together in this place, we ask that You would join our hearts together with You, and with all those throughout the world who are lifting up Your name. We are part of Your Kingdom, Lord – help us to see it with Your perspective.

Whether from far-away Jerusalem-city-of-God, or from our own town, God, You shine. We look for Your glory, Lord, here in this place. We pray for peace in Jerusalem, in Egypt, in Bahrain and Libya, and ask that Your glory would draw people to peace in those places. We pray for the people who are caught up in these conflicts. We all long for peace, Lord, and ask that Your glory would be shown in these times.

Our God comes; You do not keep silence; around You swirls the mighty force of nature. We have felt the wind in this place; let it remind us of the movement of Your Spirit in our own lives. Rushing Wind, sweep through us, and make us clean; may we be propelled by the Spirit as we face this new week.

You call to the heavens above and to the earth, that You may judge Your people: “Come closer to Me, my faithful ones, who made a promise to live with me!” We have heard Your call, Lord, and we pray for all of those who have not yet responded to You. Open their hearts to Your love and grace. For those who are struggling with physical illness, we ask that You would bring healing to them. We’ve mentioned some of these names, but there are so many more, Father. Be their Healer. For those we know who are in crisis, we ask for Your intervention; be known to them, God, so that they can in turn, respond to You.

Lord, we hear the words of the Psalm to come closer to You, and ask that You would do whatever You need to do in us to draw us to Yourself, and to make us like Christ. We lift our hearts to You with this prayer that we pray together. Make us one, as we pray: OUR FATHER…
