But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.1 Peter 2:9 (New International Version)
What does royal priesthood mean? What is it to be consecrated as a priesthood? What does it mean?
Father in Heaven, the world today is in turmoil. People are suffering and hurt. Your people, oh Father, are suffering and hurt.
Empower us, Father, that we may be able to make use of our priesthood to empower others as well.
Give us the courage and the guidance to declare that we are saved.
Give us the courage to proclaim that Jesus is our savior and our king.
Father, empower your people to prepare the coming of Jesus, our KING and our SAVIOR.
Guide us and help us in preparing your Kingdom.
All these we ask, through Jesus our King. Amen.
