He always lives to intercede for them.
Jesus prayed for the small group of disciples that companied with him.
And then—long before you were born—he prayed for you: “I am not praying only for these men but for all those who will believe in me through their message” (Jn. 17:20).
And ever since the day he returned to heaven he has been at the right hand of God, praying for you, interceding for you (Rom. 8:34).
Have you ever been without his prayers? Just once—when for three days he was in the grave.
You can be sure that when Jesus
prays for you, God listens.
