Prayer of Approach

(inspired by Hebrews 5, 8, 10)

We could not approach you, O God, 

were it not for the person of Jesus, Lord and Saviour, Servant and Friend. 

His perfect love and life could have widened the gap between us and you, 

but instead he offered himself as the way to you, 

by living out the truth of your love and by gracing our lives with the gift of his life. 

Accept our prayers and praise, 

our spoken and unspoken words of thankfulness 

for being able to approach you, O God, through Jesus—

the way, the truth and the life. 

May this time of worship increase our desire to live lives 

which honour and glorify you. 

This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
