The Practice of Corporate Prayer

Yesterday, we looked at the practice of private prayer. Today, we consider the call to pray corporately in the same seven ways:

1. The prayer of ADORATION.

Jeremiah 10:6-7 – There is none like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is great in might. Who would not fear you, O King of the nations? For this is your due; for among all the wise ones of the nations and in all their kingdoms there is none like you.

Psalm 145:10-11 – All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD, and all your saints shall bless you! They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power

2. The prayer of CONFESSION

Dan 9:5 – we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules.

Isa 64:6 – We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

3. The prayer of SUPPLICATION

Psa 67:1 – May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah

Psa 85:7 – Show us your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.

4. The prayer of INTERCESSION

Psa 67:3 – Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!

Psa 7:9 – Oh, let the evil of the wicked come to an end, and may you establish the righteous– you who test the minds and hearts, O righteous God!

5. The prayer of THANKSGIVING

2Cr 9:15 – Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!

Eph 1:3 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,

6. The prayer of DEDICATION

Isa 26:13 – O LORD our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone we bring to remembrance.

Isa 63:19 – We have become like those over whom you have never ruled, like those who are not called by your name.

7. The prayer of DOXOLOGY

Phl 4:20 – To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Rev 7:10 – and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
