It’s What He Lives For

Posted on May 25, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

In my last blog post, I talked about the need to lift our hands (a.k.a. intercede in prayer) for those around us going through the battles of life. But the more I started thinking about it, the more overwhelmed I got. We have need of people praying for us and we have people we need to pray for and also people who need us to join them in prayer for others they are praying for. And there is so much hurt and struggle going on in our world. So many people who need prayer. It seems like an awfully daunting task, even for the whole body of Christ together. But Jesus reminded me that we are not alone. Romans 8:26 says that “the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.” And verse 27 says, “the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.” AND Hebrews 7:25 tells us that Jesus LIVES to intercede for US! How powerful it is to know that the Holy Spirit and Jesus are praying right alongside of us!
