Father, open our eyes to see Your Son through Your eyes – to see Him as He really was (is) when He walked the earth. Enable us to see Him

A promise of so much more than what we could ever have on this earth . . . . .

in all His perfection; to see the qualities, character traits that we should want to emulate; to see how He lived out all the things that He taught; how that He paved the way for believers to walk in His footsteps.

Forgive us for our far-too-often erroneous images, expectations, and assumptions, trying to mould both Father and Son according to our own flawed desires, ways, and images. Make us to desire to see the real Way that Jesus/Yeshua walked out Your Will, Your purposes, Your Way.

May we absorb and integrate the Words of Jesus/Yeshua, such as when He said  Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your transgressions”(Mk.11:25), and realize that this is not a mere suggestion, but in fact a prescription for how we are to live out His teaching/commandments.

Just as when Yeshua overturned the tables (Mk.11:15), we need also to be able to stand on Your Word/Your principles. Just as when He chased them out of the temple and said ‘“My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’” (Mk.11:17,18), so give us the backbone, and courage to do likewise, when our fellow believers are not walking in accordance with Your principles, commandments, and/or Ways. Make us to take these commandments more seriously than we do.

Bring us to that place of walking in faith, not doubting (Mk.11:22-24), knowing that when we pray in accordance with Your Word/Will, and in Jesus/Yeshua’s Name, our prayers will be heard and answered  (John 15:7,8).

Let us be ever grateful and looking forward to that time when we

Jesus/Yeshua promises His disciples that He will return & bring them to their eternal home with Him.

inherit our eternal home with You, Lord Jesus/Yeshua Messiah/Holy Father; what a glorious day that will be!! When we get to really enter into our inheritance with You, and experience those glorious dwellings You have prepared for those who love You, for You said  “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:2,3). HALLELUIAH! What a glorious day that will be! Thank-you, Lord! In Your Holy Name, we thank You. Amen.
