Collect Prayer

Structure of the formless
Five steps, I’d like to share
Container of desire
A simple form of prayer

Addressing of Your God
Calming of soul still
Of Father, Abba, Lord
Surrender of our will

Acknowledge quality
Of our God embraced
Love, wisdom or grace
Through this request is based

Petition of request
The one thing that we need
Guidance, mercy, faith
In His hands we concede

Speak of aspiration
The result we desire
Granting of petition
Appealing of the higher

Sing a “bird of Praise
Through God’s only Son
Our Savior and redeemer
And pray His will be done
