Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
What a joy, what a privilege to come to God with our every concern!
Father, today I thank You for Your open arms, reaching out to embrace me through my time in prayer.
Thank You for the free access I have to Your throne room. Through Christ I have a key to enter the holy of holies.
Thank You for providing an Intercessor for me and for Speaking Your words into my mumbled confusion.
Thank You for asking me (me?) to partner with You in changing the world, one prayer at a time.
Thank You for having open ears and an open heart to my every plea.
Thank You for the community prayer offers: for those who have lifted me up in prayer and ministered to my soul through prayer.
Thank You for this open and well-worn passageway to Your heart.
