KALEO WORSHIP GUIDE
READ. PRAY. SING.
While gathering on Sundays to worship is something that we are called to do (Hebrews 10:24-25), the scriptures also show us the importance of intentionally worshiping God in our homes during the week (Deuteronomy 6:7). Kaleo's bi-weekly Worship Guide provides structure to help families, singles, and couples, in the daily worship of God within the home. The guide simply encourages Christ followers to READ, PRAY, and SING.
You don’t need to follow the guide point by point, but rather utilize the resource to craft a daily worship experience appropriate for your home. Keep it simple, keep it short (especially with younger kids), and keep it consistent (and don’t forget to be patient and flexible too).

Question: Who is God?
Answer: God is the only living and true God. He’s the all-glorious, almighty, all-knowing, sovereign Creator and Lord of the whole universe. God is perfect and holy, infinite, eternal, and unchanging.

1 Timothy 1:17
A Pattern for Prayer
The Lord’s Prayer was not meant to be a rigid prayer to be said word-for-word. It was meant to be used as a template to help us learn how to pray. Walk through the Lord’s Prayer below for a helpful tool in learning how to pray. You could cover one section per day or week with smaller children.
Our Father in Heaven
Start in the posture of a child. (I love to give my children good gifts … so does our Father in Heaven!)
Remember His love for you expressed in Jesus as you approach him. (You can do it boldly!)
You stand in the same place as Jesus.
Rehearse the truths of the Gospel and invite the Spirit to remind you all of that is true of Jesus and now you in Him.
Hallowed Be Your Name
Move toward praise and thanksgiving.
Praise Him for who He is and thank Him for what He has done.
Use the Psalms to help you with this if necessary.
Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done
Commit yourself to His will.
Pray kingdom prayers … that what is true in heaven will be true here.
Pray for his rule and reign over your life and what you are able to influence.
Ask Him to reveal any place in which you are not seeking his kingdom first.
Give Us … Our Daily Bread
Ask him to meet your basic needs.
Bring your petitions before him.
Bring the needs of others before him.
Forgive Us Our Debts …
Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal unbelief or rebellion.
Acknowledge it as sin and ask him to forgive you.
Extend forgiveness to others.
Lead Us Not into Temptation
Ask the Spirit to reveal areas of weakness or vulnerability to the evil one.
Ask for power to overcome sin and deliverance from the evil one.
Recommended Song for this Month: O Church Arise
O church arise and put your armor on
Hear the call of Christ our Captain
For now the weak can say that they are strong
In the strength that God has given
With shield of faith and belt of truth
We'll stand against the devil's lies
An army bold whose battle cry is Love
Reaching out to those in darkness
Our call to war to love the captive soul
But to rage against the captor
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith and valour
When faced with trials on every side
We know the outcome is secure
And Christ will have the prize for which He died
An inheritance of nations
Come see the cross where love and mercy meet
As the Son of God is stricken
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet
For the Conqueror has risen
And as the stone is rolled away
And Christ emerges from the grave
This victory march continues till the day
Every eye and heart shall see Him
So Spirit come put strength in every stride
Give grace for every hurdle
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful
As saints of old still line the way
Retelling triumphs of His grace
We hear their calls and hunger for the day
When with Christ we stand in glory
