Prayer: Week of April 18, 2021

God, Almighty and three times holy, grant us a vision of Your splendour and perfection that will bedazzle us. Like the Israelites, who were afraid to approach the mountain, give us a reasonable fear of Your immeasurable power. Like Isaiah, who was terrified to stand in Your sacred presence, give us a zealous respect for the rift that separates us from your absolute purity. Lord, how can we approach You?! Glory be to Your name, You have come toward us in Jesus, the God-Man, who is our perfect intermediary. Thank you forever for the honour of being Your children. Amen.
