 Prayer and Priestliness



Priesthood and priestliness is to be found at the heart of anything truly spiritual.
Priesthood and priestliness is to be found at the heart of anything truly relevant.
Priesthood and priestliness is to be found at the heart of anything truly operative in the realm of prayer.

He abides forever and holds His priesthood permanently. Hence, also, He is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. Hebr 7:25

 Re: Prayer and Priestliness



What rests in and belongs to priestliness is marked by an unambiguous ”Unto God”.

 Re: Prayer and Priestliness



Priestliness – a mind intensely occupied by considering Jesus.

Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession. Hebr 3:1

Priestliness;
Not what I am but what He is.
There is no nee dying to the fact that I am somebody,
but to the urge to try to be somebody.

 Re:

Peter describs the priestly role as 'to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ' - 1 Peter 2:5 and 'to bear witness to his saving work in the world' - 2:9.

Thus the priesthood is a mediatory role into which all Christians are enrolled through prayer and proclaimation.

Lord, fill your people with your Holy Spirit that they might be a royal priesthood, until that time comes when we are all called to partake in your rule over the new earth (Rev 5:10)

Dave

 Re: Prayer and Priestliness



The world is destitute of the sense of things heavenly for the lack of priests who are able to bring that dimension of reality.
Another synonym for heaven is reality. Whatever reality is, then that is heaven. It takes even a priestly mentality to sense that, and to feel for that, and a priestly ministry to introduce that in a world that is inhospitable to heaven.
Earth resists heavenly things, and yet mankind languishes for the lack of priests.
Art Katz
