A Prayer inspired by Hebrews 12:14-29

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 12:14-29. The complete list of prayers inspired by Hebrews is included at the bottom of this post. You can also view my message, “Make Every Effort,” drawn from this passage here.

Holy, holy, holy are You
Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come—
You alone are God.

We humbly approach You
knowing that we have nothing in ourselves to bring
other than our emptiness
that only You can fill with Your great provision.

Thank You for your abundant provision
through Jesus Christ, the Mediator of the new covenant.
In Him we have been graced
with every spiritual blessing You could possibly give. 

We trust the blood of Christ
as fully sufficient above every other thing.
We turn from sin and idolatry
to You, the One and Only God.

May our lives be built on Christ alone,
the firm foundation for our faith
and the all-sufficient sacrifice
Who brings us life and salvation.
 

All this we pray through You, Father,
who with Jesus the Eternal Son
and the indwelling Holy Spirit,
are One God, both now and forever.
Amen.
