By the blood...

Hebrews 10:19-22 
King James Version (KJV)

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

And having an high priest over the house of God;

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Prayer:

Thankyou Father that we can come into your holy presence with boldness by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) who sets us at liberty.

Thankyou that the thick veil of the temple has been torn from top to bottom so that we may come freely to such a holy God as thee.

We rejoice that if we draw near to you you will draw near to us and that if we resist the devil he will flee from us. So Lord give us strength, your strength.  For it is yours alone that will be sufficient.

Thankyou for full assurance of faith, that our hearts may be sprinkled from an evil conscience, that though our sin be as scarlet you can wash us as white as snow. So we confess that we sin (miss the mark) by commission (doing wrong)  and omission (not doing right). That we sin in thought, word and deed. We plead the blood of Jesus and ask for forgiveness for all of this. That by his wounds we may be healed.

We pray in the name of our high priest Jesus the Messiah.

Amen.
