Almighty God, We read here that Moses entered the Tent of Meeting to speak with you, and that you met him there and spoke with him. I thank you on my behalf and behalf of ______________________ that Christ has made it possible for us to come into your very presence just as Moses did, through the new and living way he opened for us through the curtain of his flesh. I pray that you will prompt each of us to accept your invitation to draw near to you with a sincere heart and with the full assurance of faith that you will receive us and meet with us. As you spoke with Moses, so I pray that you will speak with us through your Holy Spirit and through your word. May each of us hear your voice speaking to us, counseling, instructing, and directing us just as you did Moses. I pray for our nation, that all of our civic leaders at every level will be dedicated to offering themselves to you and will be examples of faith and obedience for the people they lead. I pray that you will bless us, infuse us with your strength, and enrich our lives. I pray that you will keep us, and protect us and guard us from evil and from Satan. I pray that you will make your face shine upon us, and communicate to us your acceptance of us and your delight and pleasure in us. I pray that you will be gracious to us, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in our time of need. I pray that you will turn your face toward us, and make us the object of your attention and your favor. And I pray that you will give us peace, and make us whole and complete. Please guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus with a peace that transcends even our ability to understand it. May we bear your name proudly and may you in turn bless us richly. This I pray in the name of Jesus, our great high priest over the house of God. Amen.
