Lord God Almighty, As we read this section of Scripture, we see how your glory was manifested to your people as they offered sin offerings and burnt offerings to you. I pray in Jesus' name that ______________________ and I will trust in Christ as the offering you have provided for our own sin. I pray that we will offer our own bodies to you as living sacrifices, wholly yielded to you and to your will. I pray in response that you will manifest your glory in our lives, and that your glory will be seen by others around us. I pray the same for your church. As we trust in the sin offering of Christ and offer ourselves to you, I pray that your glory will appear to all of us when we are gathered in your presence. May your glory manifest itself in such power that we will find ourselves shouting for joy and falling facedown before you. Lord, we are sobered as we read the account of Nadab and Abihu, and what happened when they offered unauthorized fire before you. You teach us that under the New Covenant we are all priests who can approach you just as these men did. As their sin seemed to involve drunkenness, I pray that you will protect us from every form of substance abuse and fill us instead with your Holy Spirit. Protect us from thinking that we are serving you or worshipping you if we pursue things contrary to your commands. Please grant us understanding of how we are to worship you under the New Covenant. Help us to distinguish between what is holy and common, and what is spiritually clean and unclean. Lord, please show yourself holy among us as we approach you through the new and living way that Christ has made for us through his shed blood. May you be honored in the sight of all the people who gather to worship you. Amen.
