A Prayer inspired by Hebrews 3:7-19

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 3:7-19. The complete list of prayers inspired by Hebrews is included at the bottom of this post. You could also view my message, “Soft Hearted,” from this passage here.

Today, our Father, we hear You speaking,
just as You did to those who went before us in the faith,
inviting them to an Exodus of freedom
and the Promised Land of life with You.

Today, Lord Jesus, we hear You speaking,
as the final word of God bringing life.
In our noisy world that distracts us at every turn,
help us to heed and obey Your invitation.

Today, Holy Spirit, we hear You speaking,
through the words of Holy Scripture
and in the quietness of our hearts.
Strengthen us to respond with willing hearts.

We admit, O God, that You are faithful
but we are often more like Your people of times past
hot and cold, on again-off again, in our pursuit of You.
Forgive us, renew us, and set us on the path again.

All this we pray in Your name, Triune God—
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—
forever speaking and forever searching
to whom be all honor and glory, now and forever.
Amen.

Join us for worship with Eastbrook Church through Eastbrook at Home as we continue our series “The Final Word: Knowing Christ through Hebrews.” This weekend we look at the second part of Hebrews 3, verses 7-19, as I explore the significance of responding to God’s word each day with a soft, and not hardened, heart.

Join in with a virtual small group on the sermon every Sunday at 11 AM. More info here.

Each Sunday beginning at 8 AM, you can participate with our weekly worship service at home with your small group, family, or friends. This service will then be available during the week until the next Sunday’s service starts.

As we continue to tweak this experience, please let us know your experience by emailing us here. You can also access or download the service directly via Vimeo or the Eastbrook app.

If you are not signed up for our church emailing list, please sign up here. Also, please remember that during this time financial support for the church is critical as we continue minister within our congregation and reach out to our neighborhood, city, and the world at this challenging time.

A Prayer inspired by Hebrews 3:1-6

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 3:1-6. The complete list of prayers inspired by Hebrews is included at the bottom of this post. You could also view my message, “God’s House,” from this passage here.

Our Father, You are the builder of everything,
from the beautiful expanse of the created world
to the gracious household of Your people, the church,
both of which have come into being through Jesus Christ.

Lord Jesus Christ, we fix our thoughts on You.
You are worthy of greater honor than Moses,
who served God by bearing witness to the truth.
You are the Son of God who has not only born witness,
but sacrificed Yourself to birth that new household, the church.

We fix our thoughts and the eyes of our hearts on You, Jesus,
while also confessing that so many things cause us trouble.
We stumble and trip along the way because of sin and burdens.
Please strengthen us to hold firmly to our living hope in You.

We are absolutely lost without You,
and that is why
we pray to You,
the Triune God—
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—
to whom be all honor and glory, now and forever.
Amen.
