Heavenly Father, how we praise and thank You that we have access to the throne of grace for mercy to find help in time of need. Thank You that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much and that we have been called to pray without ceasing, in the knowledge that You hear and answer the prayers and petitions of all Your people. Thank You that Jesus is our heavenly High Priest and that the day is coming when His intercessions, together with those of a multitude of saints will combine on the heavenly alter - as Your redemptive plan continues to be played out on the pages of history. I pray that I may complete the work You have called me to do, for Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
