A Prayer inspired by Hebrews 12:1-3

image 3 - Hebrews

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 drawn from Hebrews 12:1-3. The complete list of prayers inspired by Hebrews is included at the bottom of this post. You can also view my message, “Consider Jesus,” drawn from this passage here.

Jesus, we fix our eyes on You—
the preexistent Son,
eternally begotten from the Father,
whose glory is matchless and immeasurable.

Jesus, we fix our eyes on You—
You show us the beginning and end of faith,
revealing the perfection and completion of a faith-full life.
Begin and complete such faith in us.

Jesus, we fix our eyes on You—
You turned away from false joys and glittering temptations
to bear the cruel Cross and suffer death’s destruction
that we might have life and see the way true life is lived in You.

Jesus, we fix our eyes on You—
bursting death’s gasping grave empty,
You rose to life victorious and ascending,
now resident eternally in glory at the Father’s right hand.

Jesus, we fix our eyes on You
and build our lives upon You.
May faith grow stronger daily
until we see Your face in that final day.
