Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus our Saviour as God's annointed High Priest, Who ever lives to make intercession for us. Thank You that He is the Mediator between God and man and that through Him we have access to Your throne of grace.. for mercy to find help in time of need. Thank You that the Lord Jesus finished the good work of redemption by means of His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection.. so that by grace through faith in Him I have been brought into eternal fellowship with You - May I live day by day to Your praise and glory in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the amazing book of Hebrews, which offers so much insight into the Person; the Work; the Mission and the Ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ and Your perfect plan of redemption. Thank You for the many 'pictures' You paint, through the history and times of Israel which teach us so much about the Lord Jesus Christ - the Prophet who was spoken of by Moses; Your anointed Priest after the order of Melchizedek and Your appointed King of kings and Lord of lords. Give me a teachable spirit I pray and open the Scriptures to me day by day - so I may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, there are no words to express our grateful thanks.. as with astonished awe and wonder we consider Jesus, our heavenly high Priest, who in the days of His flesh offered up prayers and supplication with loud crying and tears, as He faced the cross and was made sin on my account. Worthy is Jesus the Lamb that was slain to receive all honour and glory and worship and praise and majesty, dominion and power for ever and ever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father thank You that Jesus came to earth as my kinsman-Redeemer and learnt how it was to live in this sin-sick fallen world.. Thank You that He was prepared to lay aside His heavenly glory and to be born into the race He created.. in order to live a perfect life as an example of how I should live - but also that He died a sacrificial death so that by faith in Him I might be forgiven of my sins and redeemed by His precious blood - To Him be all praise and glory for ever and ever, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that the eternal Son of God set aside His glory to become part of humanity and to live in humble circumstances on my account. Thank You that He was willing to be perfected by the things that He suffered so that by grace through faith in Him He would become my Saviour. May I live in humble obedience to His will - Who is the Source of eternal life and the Author and Finisher of my faith - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, I pray that I may grow in grace and become spiritually mature. I pray that as I submit to the work of the Holy Spirit in my life I may become increasingly like the Lord Jesus and that as I live and work to Your praise and glory.. I may have my senses trained to discern what is good and what is evil - so that I may discern those teachings and teachers that distort the word of truth and stand fast on the unchanging and unchangable Word of God, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN
