Observation

Why are animal sacrifices or other types of penance no longer needed?

Application

Am I trusting in Jesus’ sacrifice to perfect me?

Prayer

Dear God, I thank you that Jesus is so much greater than any priest. For while mere human priests stood day after day ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which could never take away sins, Jesus, after offering one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at Your right hand. He is now waiting until His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are sanctified. Give me a heart that remains grateful and faithful and obedient in response to this great gift by this perfect, all-powerful priest! In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
