Prayer Power

Having a tough day?  Facing a difficult decision?  Uncertain of your next move? Just get bad news?

Friends will often say, “I’m praying for you.” It is always comforting to know others are taking our need before the Throne of Grace.  Over and over in Scripture God instructs us to pray.

Today as I was encouraging a loved one…. I, too, was reminded:

Jesus is praying for you today.

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

The Holy Spirit intercedes for you.

For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:26-27

Not only are your family and friends praying for your need; Jesus is praying for you today.  How awesome is that?

Blessings, Diane

    Thank you, Diane, for this reminder. I know Jesus intercedes for us, but somehow saying it the way you did, makes me realize it is more personal.
