ToGather: Our Father's Grace Becomes Our Mission

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

Hebrews 11:1-7

Dear Father, trustworthy God,

You alone are worthy of faith, for you alone have the power to keep promises. Increase my faith, Lord. May I have the full assurance of what I hope for, the firm conviction of the reality of what I do not yet see.

Give me faith in your creation and ordering of the world, that what is here is made out of what does not appear.

Give me faith like Abel, who sought your approval and whose faith still speaks beyond his death.

Give me faith like Enoch, who walked so close to you that you took him to yourself without his having to die.

Give me faith like Noah, who was willing to preach your message to an unregenerate and unrepentant world.

In the name of Jesus, who died in my place. Amen.
