The Opportunity Of Prayer

One of the blessings of the Christian life is the opportunity to pray. Through prayer, Christians have the opportunity to pray to the God of the universe. We have this opportunity because Jesus is our great High Priest.

In Hebrews 4, the Bible says “So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”

Notice the text reads…”So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.” How are we able to come boldly to the throne of God? Through prayer. Because of what Jesus did on the cross, He has made it possible for us to talk to God. Think about that..we are able to talk to the God of the universe because of Jesus death on the cross.

Today, whatever burden you have…take it to the Lord in prayer. Jesus has made a way for us through His death on the cross.
