    Dear Lord, I give you my entire heart, soul and being. All of the training, studying and skills are yours. Each work that I do and the money I earn is done in your honor. I lay all of my hopes and aspirations at your feet. I pray that you will bless my work and find favor in all that I do. When I meet new challenges in my work, I pray that you will help me to overcome them and excel in my job. Please guide me throughout the day so that I may walk in your path in all that I do. Amen.

    Protect me in this time away from home. When I return, go before me and give me favor with my doctors. I ask that this tumor would dry up and I am healed by Jesus dying on the Cross so I may give praise to you for a good report. And I shall tell of all of your mercy and grace and favor. Praise you Jesus forever, amen.
  • Prayer for peace and rest - in Reply on Hebrews 10:26
    You are the Comforter and the Healer.

    I need your power in my life.

    I feel a lot of anxiety and pressure right now. My mind is being attacked by the enemy of my soul. Heal my memories that I pray to forget.

    I am pressuring myself,

    attempting to either control, direct, or manage everything I care about.

    I need you to manage me.

    Take away the shame, calm my distress,

    sooth my afflictions, relieve my groaning,

    comfort my grief,

    strengthen my weaknesses,

    defeat my oppression,

    remember my pain,

    repair my brokenness,

    defeat my terror,

    reveal my confusion,

    champion my injustices,

    rescue me from danger.

    You are my rock, refuge, rescuer,

    confidante, leader, guide, deliverer,

    safe haven, merciful judge, shelter,

    sight, friend, preserver, champion.

    My pressures are nothing to you.

    My worries are almost laughable (except you would never laugh at me).

    My future is secure in you.

    My insecurities are unnecessary.

    All my days are numbered.

    Not one of them is lost to you.

    Lord, teach me tonumbermy days

    that I may live them for you,

    every moment,

    free of fear and anxiety,

    I trust you and love you,

    My times are in your hands; deliverme from my enemies [my own thoughts and emotions] and from those that pursue me. Let your face shine on yourservant; save me in your unfailing love. Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, for I have cried out to you; but letthe wicked be put to shame and lie silent in the grave." (Psalm 31:15-17)

    In the Name of Jesus of Nazareth,

    Amen.

    Ask the Holy Spirit to help you clean any idols that are lost in your home. You're having spiritual warfare. You should pray this prayer at night before sleeping. The more Bible you get inside of you, the more peace you will have. It will help if you'll go on YouTube and view some spiritual warfare videos. I like Derek Prince.

    I pray you will find peace and rest for your soul.

    Mishael

    I take it to mean that God's grace is not a l license to sin.
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 10:26
    (continuing comment). How precious is our salvation then: this gift that we hang onto tenaciously in a life of godliness & love. Rom 5:20 "..But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound", i.e. there is not too great a sin that God's Grace cannot cover.
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 10:26
    All Scripture pertaining to the Mercy of God granted to us through His Son, shows us that we don't have license to sin because of the Grace afforded us. Heb 10:26 speaks of those who were apparently saved, or at least, believed themselves to be, & rejected Christ forever, preferring the offerings of the world. Then there are those who firmly believe that once we are saved, our subsequent carelessness in life, doesn't void our salvation & eternal life. But Phil 2:12: "...work out your own salvation with fear & trembling"; i.e. now that you are saved, keep close tabs on your new life with great seriousness. 1 Pet 4:18 "and if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly & sinner appear"; i.e. we are saved by the "skin of our teeth". (see following comment).
  • Randey on Hebrews 10:26
    What is being discussed is a total abandonment of your faith in the Lord a walking away, a total denial that Jesus is Lord after having tasted of His goodness and mercy. If you allow that to occur in your heart, there is no forgiveness for that and no one to forgive you, for the only One that could, you now deny.
  • Bob on Hebrews 10:26
    This verse has troubled me in the past. I was discussing it one day with a pastor and the Lord suddenly enlightened me. The author of Hebrews is trying to show his Jewish readers the superiority of Christ over the Law of Moses. He talks about Christ 's superiority to angels, the rest we have in Christ, His eternal priesthood which is superior to that of Aaron. He goes on to say that Christ 's sacrifice is superior to those of the Law Heb 10:12 and the new covenant superior to that of the old Heb 10:16 . The Hebrew readers had suffered severe persecution Heb 10:32-34 and were considering going back to the old system of the Law which included all of the sacrifices and offerings included therein. They were ready to abandon Christ and return to sacrificing animals to atone for their sins. The author tells them not to cast away their confidence in Christ which has great recompence of reward. For if they return to the old way of believing that sacrificing animals atoned for sins they are considering Christ 's blood worthless or an unholy thing. They were believers and had tasted of the Heavenly Gift Christ and were partakers of the Holy Ghost. Their decision to return to animal sacrifices was tantamount to: Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace. He calls this type of apostasy "sinning willfully. " If you read Hebrews in this context it will make sense.

    a jast need substantial explanations about sins that cannot be forgiven
  • Jay on Hebrews 10:26
    You will loose your Salvation. I too don 't beleive of that saying, "once you save you are always save ". Jesus didn 't die for nothing. There 's a different between "forgiveness " and "remission " of sins. Forgive means forget but remission means there in NO more evidence on it. Our sin has been forgotten and completely wipe off by the blood of Jesus. It is what it is as the bible say Heb 10:26. If we sin "Wifully " after.... There it is. Please read Romans 6:1-2 That is what the completion of this verse. Thank you.
