A Prayer inspired by Hebrews 12:1-13

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 12:1-13. The complete list of prayers inspired by Hebrews is included at the bottom of this post. You can also view my message, “Run,” drawn from this passage here.

Father,
thank You for Your greatest gift
in Jesus Christ, our Savior and High Priest.

Thank You for Your tender care of us
that enables us to daily walk with You and live for You.

Thank You for Your firm discipline of us
that strengthens us with perseverance for the journey.

Thank You that in all of this You are a good Father to us,
transforming us day by day over the course of our lifetime.

Help us to submit to Your Fatherly care
in both Your tenderness and Your discipline
so that we might look more like Jesus year after year
in every aspect of our lives from top to bottom.

We know this is not something we do ourselves
but that You do this in us by Your great power.
Help us, though, to surrender our lives to You
so that Your kingdom might come and Your will might be done
here on earth as it is in heaven.

All this we pray, Father, in Your name,
who, with Jesus the eternal Son and the Holy Spirit,
reign, One God, both now and forever.
Amen.
