Prayer for the Ones We Love to Know Jesus

Dearest Lord Jesus,

You ask us the same question You asked the disciples. “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). And we answer:

You are God’s plan for salvation, the fulfillment of the Old Testament Prophecies... (Genesis 3:15).
You are the Christ Child, born of the virgin Mary... (Isaiah 7:14).
You are Immanuel, God dwelling in our midst... (Matthew 1:23).
You are God’s beloved Son in whom He is well pleased... (Mark 1:11).
You are the Light shining into our darkness... (John 8:12).
You are God’s Answer for our brokenness... (Isaiah 61:1-3).
You are the Bread of Life, who nourishes our hungry souls... (John 6:35).
You are the Lamb of God, poured out for the propitiation of our sin... (Isaiah 53:5-12).
You are the Incarnation of God’s Love, the Savior of the world... (I John 1:1-3).


We pray our children and their spouses, our grandchildren and their generations to follow, will answer likewise.

In your Name, we pray.
Amen.
