Throughout our new series “The Final Word: Knowing Christ through Hebrews,” I am writing prayers related to the text on which we are preaching each week.. This prayer is inspired by Hebrews 1:1-4. You could also view my message, “Jesus, the Final Word,” from this passage here.
Lord our God, we praise You
for Your infinite grace to us
in revealing Yourself to us
through the prophets and ancestors
at many times and in various ways.
We thank You, our God,
that You do not consider it too small a thing
to speak to us, to condescend to us,
and to give Your written word to us in Scripture.
But most of all, gracious Father,
we thank You for the gift of Your Son,
Jesus our Messiah, who is the final Word
and the ultimate revelation of who You are.
In this season when we celebrate His resurrection,
give us particular grace to see
with the eyes of our hearts opened wide
the multi-faceted splendor of Jesus Christ.
All this we pray, through Him, Jesus Christ,
Our High Priest and Perfect Sacrifice,
to whom, with You and the Holy Spirit
be all honor and glory, now and forever.
