"Jesus is Praying for You"
“Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died – more than that, who was raised to life – is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” Romans 8: 34 NIV
God knows everything that’s going to happen. In fact, He doesn’t just know what’s going to happen. He knows the past, the present and the future all at once. This means when Jesus says He’s praying for us, He’s praying about everything in our lives.
You may have just stopped reading this for a second. Am I really saying that God prays for us? Yes, I am. When God talks to Himself it’s prayer. Just as when I as a father or grandfather, talk about my kids to God, it is prayer.
Do you remember Peter bragging the night before Jesus died that He would never leave Him or desert Him? Jesus knew what Peter was going to do and confronted him about it. In Luke 22, Jesus says, “I have prayed that you will not lose your faith!”
So Jesus was already praying for Peter before anything happened. The Bible tells us that Jesus sits at the right hand of God. Is it too farfetched to think that what He does while He’s sitting there is pray for us?
So, no matter what is happening in your life, Jesus is praying for you. He’s on your side. When you trust Him as your Savior, He intercedes with you with His Father.
Peace in the Lord,
