Hebrews 5:6-7New International Version (NIV)

And he says in another place,

“You are a priest forever,
    in the order of Melchizedek.”

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.

Because our sins are forgiven, and we are cleansed by the blood of Jesus, we are priests. God’s plan for us is that we are his people, and we are a kingdom of priests. We are meant to rule in God’s Kingdom. We should offer up prayers and petitions just as Jesus did. As we learn to pray, we become qualified to rule. I God calling you?

Father, May you bless me in my calling. May you keep your hand upon me and lead me. May you instruct me and give me wisdom and understanding. May God bless me and keep me in the calling you have for my life. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
