   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

I’ll proclaim the Name of the Lord and praise Your greatness, O my God! You’re my Rock. Your works are perfect and all Your ways are just. A faithful God, You do no wrong. Upright and just are You. [Deuteronomy 32:3-4]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

  • Your Country: Those trapped in debt and credit abuse
  • Yourself: A greater desire for moral excellence
  • Your concerns for today
Help me to think positively about my distress as it comes in any form, Father God, because I know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; character, hope and hope won’t disappoint. [Romans 5:3-5]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

May I be one of those who love You, Lord, and hate evil because You guard the lives of Your faithful ones and deliver me from the hand of the wicked. [Psalm 97:10]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.”

Thank-you, Lord God, that it’s You who will fight for Your people. I need only to be still. [Exodus 14:14]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”
