Prayer of the Week: Hebrews 9:11-14


Dear Students and Friends,

As we travel towards Pascha, won't you join us in occasional Prayers of the Week? These are weekly e-mails from Fr Andrew Harrison of St Luke Church where a prayer is offered, plus a question to answer.

This week's prayer:

Let us pray to the Lord--O Lord You will return with the sound of the trumpet. You will reveal to us Your Holy city which we only experience as a shadow, a copy, each time we attend the Divine Liturgy. You are our high priest who has entered the more perfect tabernacle with Your own precious body and blood as a sacrifice for us. Grant that we may see through our spiritual eyes this more perfect tabernacle which you made present in Your Holy Church. We pray in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Bible verse: Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is not of this creation. Heb 9:11

Bible question: What does Christ's Sacrifice do for us?

You can earn one credit for answering this question--e-mail your answer to else10(at)gmail(d0t)com. In addition to earning one credit, your anonymous response to this question will be posted on the St Luke website. Visit the website each week to see more questions and answers.
