Day 12

A Prayer Of Exaltation For Christ Our King

“He (Christ) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things exist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.”

Colossians 1:15–18

Lord Jesus,

You are the eternal Word made flesh, the only begotten of the Father — truly God and truly man. As ministering servant, You lived to show us the Father’s heart by loving the lost, healing the sick, comforting the lonely, driving out demons, and, ultimately, suffering and dying for our sins on the cross so we might experience newness of life in You. Through Your death and resurrection, we too are raised to new life again. You are the eternal Savior and mediator of humanity, bringing us to the Father and interceding for us in heaven at the right hand of God. Jesus, You are head of the church — Your body and beloved bride. We ask that You guide us in the paths that lead to life eternal. Holy Spirit, renew us daily that we might reflect our true self, created in the image of God in Christ. We ask in the name of Jesus, the Christ. Amen.
