Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. – (Hebrews 4:16)

 

Christ came and endured all temptations and trials known to man, yet was without sin. He knows what we face. He knows when we fall. We are His and we are loved. Our path to approach the throne of grace is through prayer, and we may do so confidently, yet reverently, because He is both our loving Heavenly Father and Christ the King. Jesus is available as our Counselor and our Friend, and is our ever present help in our time of need. His mercy is made available to all who call on His Name. May we approach His throne with confidence, being supplied all that we need, as God is loving and merciful to those who call on Him.

 

Look to the throne,Risk to Reward

of God’s mercy seat;

where grace is shown,

a gift to receive.

With confidence,

go boldly before;

our help in need,

Holy Counselor.

Boldly approach,

in prayer, we shall come;

before the Lord,

most merciful One.

He is our help,

in our time of need;

our Source of strength,

when we’re feeling weak.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your Son, Jesus, to come live, die and rise again, experiencing every temptation and trial that He did, so that He could be the perfect High Priest for us. Jesus, thank You for all that You endured on our behalf, and for remaining seated at the right hand of the Father, listening to our every prayer and receiving us as we come. Thank You that because of Your sacrifice, we are considered acceptable before You – not because of anything that we have or have not done, but because of You dwelling within us. Forgive us for approaching Your throne either meekly or flippantly. Teach us to have a proper perspective as we come before You in prayer. May we do so with both confidence and reverence, giving all glory and honor unto You. Lead us to love people as You so generously love each of us, and may many come into a saving relationship with You as a result. Be glorified Lord God, as we approach Your throne of grace with confidence and reverence. Amen.

Because of the tender mercy of our God, …the rising sun will come to us from heaven. – Luke 1:78
