Luke 22:31-32 ESV – 31 “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, 32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”
Romans 8:34 ESV – 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died–more than that, who was raised–who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.
Hebrews 7:22-25 ESV – 22 This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant. 23 The former priests were many in number, because they were prevented by death from continuing in office, 24 but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. 25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
The One who created me, who fashioned me and chose me before the foundation of the world, who knows my every thought and who has works for me to do (Psalm 119, 139, Ephesians 2) — prays for me. Jesus, You know exactly what I need. My foolish heart wants to pray for escape; You pray that my faith will not fail. I want to pray for ease; You pray that my faith will be strengthened and that I will endure. You know exactly what I need, and what is best for me. I trust You.
