Praying with Paul: 'Jesus, Pioneer of Salvation'

Hebrews 2:5-13

Dear Father, King of all,

Thank you for subjecting the world to come to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you that Jesus was willing for a time to be made lower than the angels and to taste death for every person, according to your grace.

Thank you for raising him up and crowning him with glory and honor because of his willingness to carry out your will.

I am so thankful that the Lord Jesus was willing to pioneer our salvation, thankful that he was made perfect through what he suffered for us, thankful that he could bring many sons to glory.

How generous of him to not be ashamed to call us brethren!

In the name of Jesus we ask. Amen.
