Preparing Your Heart to Worship Today!
One of the key elements of Men’s Prayer Advance is using the CPR method of prayer. The acrostic is simply Confession, Praise, Requests. As you prepare your heart to worship God throughout this day, may I encourage you to use CPR?
Confession – Pray through Psalm 51. Don’t rush. Let the Holy Spirit speak to you and show you what you need to repent and confess concerning sin. Be honest. Be real. 1 John 1:9, If we confess sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Praise – Pray Psalm 96 back to God. Sing a song of praise. Rejoice in the Lord in prayer! Key in more on Who He is than what He has done. Give Him praise!!
Requests – Now pray for your family as they prepare to worship; for your drive to church to be a time of worship and praise; for the folks you invited to attend today; for your SS teachers, nursery workers, sound room guys, greeters, musicians, pastor, etc. I promise, when you have confessed your sin and spent time praising the Lord, your request time will be fresh and invigorating rather than just a nothing list to pray through.
See you later on today as we worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness; fear before Him all the earth! (Psalm 96:9)
Reminder: Our goal for these 40 days of prayer and fasting is that God would so revive and change us that we would both pray and act as the people of God for the glory of God!
