Lord God! In the place of shelter which is Christ,
keep safe the one for whom I pray;
I am praying for ________________ who does not yet know eternal safety,
At least not eternal confidence and rest.
The day of trouble is a life of trouble for my dear friend – Lord, save now!
Bring my friend, my loved one, into that stronghold where nothing and no one can ever destroy; bring my dear one into faith in Your Son,
And into Him.
Then with me that one will be exalted, our heads lifted up, our dwelling place secure and sacred! Enemies may come to steal, kill, and destroy, but we will prevail with shouts of joy.
Oh, for the day when he, when she will sing and make music with me, my Lord!
For now, I will sing for both of us, I will sing songs of deliverance over my beloved friend, I will sing songs of honest praise; I will cry out with words that You will hear, and I will know that as my soul once submitted to the fact of Your lovingkindness, so shall the soul of this one for whom I pray.
Let his, let her heart cry out,
“Seek His face!”
Psalm 27:5-8, NIV
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.

It may or may not be evidentiary of Christian worship, but it does demonstrate for us that we worship at an altar which is Christ, and we do bring others with us.
