Jesus Prays for You!

If you could name one prayer warrior to lift you up, who would it be?

I choose Jesus.  Hebrews 4:14-16 and 10:21-22 are pretty clear that He intercedes for us when we come boldly and sincerely looking for mercy and grace.

Jesus’ intercessory work must be especially important because at least 3 New Testament authors emphasize it

  • Paul: Romans 8:34
  • Author of Hebrews: Hebrews 7:25, 9:24
  • John: 1 John 2:1

Jesus prays for YOU!  Every prayer you utter has Jesus supporting you, interested in you, seeking God’s very best for you!

So now imagine that you are in the throne room of heaven.  Jesus is there praying to the Father on our behalf.
