Prayer based on Luke 2:28. Themes: Salvation, Worship, Thanksgiving.

Dear Lord, I claim the promise that you will receive me into your loving arms and bless me. Just as the father in the parable received his son, I pray that you will receive me with open arms and bless me abundantly. May I always remember to give thanks and praise to you, just as the father did when he received his son. Thank you for your unconditional love and grace. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
