Hebrews 11:20-12:2

Dear Father, my trustworthy God,

Give me faith like Moses, who loved your way more than the treasures of Egypt. Give me faith like the people of the Exodus, who were willing to walk through the sea at your bidding, but keep me from wavering and rebelling as they did. Give me faith like Rahab, who placed her loyalty with you and your people. Give me faith like Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and the prophets, who did mighty works in your name and suffered with patient endurance for your sake.

Dear God, I rejoice to be in the company of your holy people, this cloud of witnesses who lived by faith in you.

May I lay aside every weight of sin and run with perseverance the race that is set before me, looking to Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of my faith.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
