A Prayer inspired by Hebrews 7:26-8:13

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 7:26-8:13. The complete list of prayers inspired by Hebrews is included at the bottom of this post. You can also view my message from this passage “New Promise,” here.

Jesus, You are the One we truly need—
holy, blameless, pure, set apart.
You are exalted above the heavens
and the Name above every name.

Jesus, You are the Lamb of God we need.
You offered Yourself as once-for-all sacrifice.
You take away the sin of the world.
You do what we cannot do for salvation and life.

Jesus, You are the Mediator of the New Covenant we need.
You brought forgiveness of sins,
wrote God’s guidance on our inner being,
and have made knowing the Living God accessible to us.

Jesus, we love You.
Jesus, we need You.
Jesus, we call out to You.
Jesus, we praise You.
Amen.
