LORD God, we have all gone astray & we feel the horrendous effects of the fall every day. All of creation groans for redemption – longing for the day when all things will be made right. A day when every tear will be wiped away from our eyes and death will be no more, a day when there will be no more mourning, or crying, or pain. May your almighty hand sustain us until that glorious day.
LORD God, praise be to your name; you have not left us in our sin and shame but you have reconciled us to yourself through the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. We were once far off but by your grace you have brought us near. Praise be to your name for the mighty works you have done!
Hebrews 10:11-14 every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, 13 waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. 14 For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.
