ToGather: Our Father's Grace Becomes Our Mission

Few truths are more important to us than Jesus' promise to intercede for us.

Hebrews 9:11-14

Dear Father,

Thank you that when Christ appeared as a High Priest, he entered into the Holy Place and took not the blood of bulls and goats, but his own blood, thus securing eternal redemption for us.

How much more perfect and pleasing to you was his sacrifice than that of animals, for he offered what was truly perfect-his sinless body.

Thank you, Father, that through this offering he has purified my conscience that I might serve you, the true and living God.

Infuse my body, soul, and spirit with your grace. Give me a soft and obedient heart that yields readily to your will. Give me a broken and contrite heart that despises sin and yearns for true holiness.

Keep me from loving the things of this world. Make me willing to surrender anything that I possess or could possess, that I may walk with you.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
