Praying with Paul: 'Jesus, Full of Grace'

Hebrews 2:14

Dear Father, King of all,

How full of grace you and your Son are for our sake! You let Jesus share in flesh and blood, partake of our nature, that he through his death might destroy the Devil, who held the power of death, and deliver us from lifelong bondage. Thank you for making Jesus so like us that he can now be a merciful and faithful high priest in our behalf, to make expiation for our sins. Thank you that, because he has suffered and has been tempted, he is able now to help us when we suffer and are tempted.

How great are your mercies, O God! How desperately we need your sustenance in every moment of our lives! How glad we are that Jesus is there by your side, pleading our case, turning away the accusations of Satan about our weaknesses, failures, and acts and thoughts of selfishness.

Thank you, Father, thank you! Thank you, Lord Jesus!

In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
