Let Us pray With You and For You

Prayer is a critical part of a Christian’s life. It is how we talk to God and one of the ways we grow our relationship with Him. It can be very private, whispered so only He can hear it, and it can be shared for all to hear. Praying is incredibly easy to do; just open your heart to God and share with Him. Whether it’s to thank Him for the many blessings He has given, to confess and ask forgiveness for your mistakes, or to ask Him to help you or a loved one that is ill or suffering, prayer DOES make a difference. Prayer is integral to our worship services, group studies, and even when we get together for coffee or fellowship. If you have a concern that you would like for us to pray about with you, please send a note to prayer@atlantafirstumc.org.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

Wesley’s Covenant Prayer
Modern Language Version

I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, place me with whom you will.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be put to work for you or set aside for you, praised for you or criticized for you.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and fully surrender all things to your glory and service.
And now, O wonderful and holy God, Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, you are mine, and I am yours.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it also be made in heaven. Amen.

John Wesley (Modern Interpretation)
