Grant us by Your Grace, the desire, the will, the determination to follow the example given to us by Jesus/Yeshua, that we each may surrender all self-life, self-focus, fleshly lusts and desires (too many things to list) in order that we may be useful in bringing You glory.

Thank-You, Holy Father, for having chosen me/each one of us, that I/we may receive that eternal home with You (John 17:2); that I/we each have the privilege of knowing You, “the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah, the One You sent” (John 17:3). Empower us each, by Your Holy Spirit, now, to be Your representatives, to follow Jesus/Yeshua’s model, and pass this Good News on to those around us, that they too would come to the Truth of Who Messiah is, and what it can mean for them in their own personal lives and final destination. Use me/us, Lord, to spread this Good Word of Truth.  

Give me/us Your Heart, Jesus/Yeshua, to enable such submitting and surrendering, “valuing not our own lives not even unto death” (Rev.12:11), just as Yeshua did, for Yeshua “humbled Himself—becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Phil.2:8).

Just as Jesus/Yeshua finished the work that You gave Him to do (John 17:4), may we each do likewise, completing whatever assignments You may have given for each of us.

Bring us each into that place of right standing before You, so we can share in that glory with Jesus/Yeshua (John 17:5).

Thank You, Lord Jesus, Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, that You are the “Alpha and Omega, the one who is and was and is … the first and the last,” says the Lord God Almighty, who is, who was, and who is to come . . .” (Rev.1:8); that we need no other. We need no one and nothing else to complete us, to make us whole, or to qualify for a place in Your Heavenly Home where we can live eternally in Your glorious presence, and serve You in Your glorious Kingdom forever. In Jesus/Yeshua’s Name. Amen.
