Day-by-Day – Day 25 – Intercession


101_1314Prayers are awesome.  They are the Christian’s wonderful connection to God.  But just think about it for a moment.  How would you feel if you knew that Jesus Christ was praying to His Father for you?  If anyone knows you inside out, it’s Christ.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather have my Saviour praying for me than a thousand people!!

~John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

~Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

I love this quote:

If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne

    What comfort knowing that our SAVIOUR prays for us.

    John 17:9-17

    I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

    And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

    And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

    While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

    And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

    I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

    I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

    They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

    Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

    THANK YOU LORD JESUS!!!
