Hebrews 8:1-13

Dear Father, the Majesty of heaven,

Thank you that in Jesus we have a totally understanding and merciful High Priest. He has your authority, seated at the right hand of the throne of your majesty in heaven, a minister in the sanctuary and true tabernacle which was set up by you, not men.

Thank you that the new covenant we have through him is superior to the old covenant in that it is written on our hearts and minds.

I want to know you, O God. I want to obey you. I want to spend my life in your service and eternity in your glory.

Remove my wickedness and remember my sins no more.

In the name of your holy Son, whose blood has bought my forgiveness, I pray. Amen.
