Praying with Paul: 'Focused on Jesus'

Hebrews 3:1-6

Dear Father,

Keep my eyes focused on Jesus. Help me carefully consider him.

Let me see his faithfulness. Let me see his worthiness to be honored.

Let me see him as the apostle and high priest of my confession.

Let me see him as the one who has called me to a heavenly calling.

Let me see him as the very Son of God, faithful over God's household, and let me see myself as part of that household of faith, and let us hold fast our confidence and our pride in our hope.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
