Lord, Jesus, you cried “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” (Mark 14:36 ESV) Then you went to the cross for my sake. You sent the Holy Spirit as Comforter to believers. “And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” (Galatians 4:6 ESV) You would have us call you, ‘Father.’ You adopted us, and we are of your household. The Almighty God desires a close relationship with me as my perfect Heavenly Father. The thought captivates my heart. ” For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘Abba! Father!'” (Romans 8:15 ESV) Touch the hearts of those who don’t know you in this way. Remove the barriers that keep them from seeing you as Heavenly Father, whose love is pure and steadfast. Take away the heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh, longing for closeness with you. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
