Saturday’s Prayer: The way in.
The Holy Spirit was showing by this that the way into the Most Holy Place had not yet been disclosed as long as the first tabernacle was still functioning. This is an illustration for the present time, indicating that the gifts and sacrifices being offered were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper.– Hebrews 9:8-9.
Dear Father, I really enjoy these moments of prayer. I can just sit with you and talk about life, about what’s going on in my life, about how I’m feeling about everything and I don’t need to be afraid of your judgments. I can confidently open my heart to you about everything and you patiently, lovingly, and mercifully listen. I really enjoy these moments of prayer. And I’m so thankful to your Son for bringing me in and to your Spirit for showing me the way in. Your Spirit has helped me see and to believe that Jesus is my entrance into your Most Holy Place. And so Lord God, Father in heaven, I really enjoy these moments of prayer when I can be with you. I pray, help me to make this time a priority in my life because this relationship with you is the most important one in my life. Lord Jesus, I can’t wait for worship tomorrow. I can’t wait to draw near to you and to encourage my fellow believers in this most holy faith. You invite me to come with my sins and you will forgive me. You invite me to come dine with you and you will assure me of your love. You send me off with your beaming face and your fatherly blessing. O Father, what joy it is to be near to you. Amen.
