Join us in Prayer

As Jesus followers, prayer is central to our work at Seattle Christian School and to our being as individuals. Each Wednesday during Lent, join us for 40 Days of Prayer when we will share a prayer point to consider as we pray for our community, nation and world. Return to this page each Wednesday for the new prayer prompt.

Today, we invite you to join in this guided prayer and read through the Psalm below.

Here is a key passage for the week, Psalm 139:1-10, 13-14:

1 You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
