Implications of the Incarnation

This January Joe Steinke facilitated a communion experience for our Navah family. Over the course of the morning we prayed a series of seven prayers that led us out of darkness and into the deliverance and Christ. Together we experienced the power of being reconciled back to God and to one another in peace, through the power of the Spirit. Our first step was to return home to our Father’s embrace.

You can pray the following prayer alone in your quiet time, with family around the table, or wherever you find yourself gathered with friends.

You Have Included Me

Lord Jesus Christ, beloved and eternal Son of the Father, Anointed of the Holy Spirit, incarnate, crucified, resurrected and ascended Lord of all creation, I believe in you.

With great joy, with the praise of my whole heart I acknowledge and agree that you have found me in my darkness and sin, laid hold of me and taken me down in your death, freed me from sin and evil, quickened me with new life in your resurrection, and lifted me up into your Father’s arms in your ascension.

All of me, and mine, every war-torn fragment, every fearful, unbelieving, broken part is in you, in your Father, in the Holy Spirit.

I rest in you, Jesus, lover of my soul, my Savior, my Salvation, my Sovereign, my King, my Liberator, the author and finisher of my faith.

You have included me in all that you are and have in your union and face-to-face communion with your Father, and you have included me in your own anointing in the Holy Spirit.

You have included me in your victory over evil and wickedness, and in your session at the Father’s right hand, above all rule and authority in heaven and on earth.

Nothing can separate me from you, your Father, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
