Prayer for Leviticus 17:11

“For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have appointed it to you to make atonement on the altar for your lives, since it is the lifeblood that makes atonement.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your perfect plan of redemption through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ - Who died and rose again so that we might be forgiven of our sin and receive a new, resurrected life, in Him. Thank You for the clear picture of redemption which threads its way through Old Testament scriptures and brings us to an understanding that we are all sinners in need of a saviour - for without the shedding of Christ's blood there is no life - for life is in the blood. Thank You that just as the life of mortal man is in the blood, so that life of forgiven sinners comes through the power or the indwelling Holy Spirit and that one day we will receive a new, resurrected body - like unto Christ's resurrected body. We praise Your holy name for ever and ever, AMEN.
