Have you ever asked someone else to pray for you? Last week I asked you all to pray for Walter's family. We thank you for all of your prayers. God is so good! Walter got to speak to his family by facetime today which was great!
As I was doing my devotions today I was struck by the fact that Jesus intercedes for us. Do we even think to ask him to pray for us though? I am challenged because his is the first person I should go to when needing someone to intercede for me. I think when it comes to prayer I always think of it as us speaking to God, all three persons (Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit). This may be why I do not think to ask for Jesus to intercede on my behalf, but Jesus does this as our High Priest who lives forever.
The next time you are facing a crisis and you do not know who to ask to pray for you, ask the perfect High Priest Jesus. He would love to intercede to the Father on your behalf. He is the best intercessor we could ask for.
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
