Hebrews 12

Read chapter

Dear God,

Thank You for Your Word and for this chapter. Thank You for the reminder that we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses and that we can lay aside every weight and sin that so easily ensnares us. Thank You for the encouragement to run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.

Please help me to fix my eyes on Jesus, to consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners, so that I may not grow weary and lose heart. Strengthen me to endure and persevere in faith, trusting in Your promises and surrendering to Your will.

May Your Word dwell richly in me, convicting and transforming my heart, that I may live according to Your ways. Empower me to lay aside all that hinders me and the sin that so easily entangles, so that I may run with perseverance the race marked out for me.

Thank You for Your grace and mercy, for Your strength and provision. Help me to live in obedience and love, and to honor You in all that I do. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
