Jesus prays for you and me and I have proof.
Jesus prayed for those who believe in Him. Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God, and intercede with Him and intervene for them. (Hebrews 7:25 AMP)
What a comfort, to know someone is praying for us. Wow. The Lord thinks so much of you and me. Who knows better, how to pray? I may never know what He prays, and I probably will fail to ask Him to pray; I dont have to. The Lord does it automatically, what an honor.
Even while we were sinners, before we accepted Him as our Savior, He accepted us. The Lord interceded for us at the cross. (See Isaiah 53:12) I had to take a moment and fully comprehend this fact.
Lord Jesus, I dont have to look a certain way or have a specific name or background, for You to pray for me. My credential is that I am Your child. I am Yours, and I gladly accept and affirm this fact!
