prayers

The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:
“This is the covenant I will make with them
after that time, says the Lord.
I will put my laws in their hearts,
and I will write them on their minds.”
Then he adds:
“Their sins and lawless acts
I will remember no more.”

“And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin. 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. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
-From the Book of Hebrews

Lord, would you make your covenant new again with us. May we enter into it once again, knowing that you will keep us safe in your arms. Put on our hearts your laws and write them on our minds. May we love them and practice them daily. May you no longer remember our sinful nature, but put on us a garment of praise for our heaviness. You are the greatest taste, you’re the richest of faire. I pray that we would know we are forgiven, that you would remind us daily that we belong to you—precious in your sight. I come with a sincere heart, that I can know your faithfulness. Cleanse me with the purest water. For you have promised, and you are faithful to move us towards the goal.
