The praying Christ

“But I have prayed for you that your faith not fail”.  (Luke 22:32)  We should be grateful for Peter. Much of the grace of God to us is illustrated by the Lord’s gentle, patient love for His “most human” of friends.  Consider the assurance that comes from the words, “I have prayed for you”– not only for Peter but also for us!  ” He ever liveth to make intercession for us.”  (Hebrew 7:25) Our spiritual success  is part of the Lord’s vision of victory!  He is counting on us.  We are not expendible in His plan.  He intends for us to succeed, even if He must often perform “search and rescue” when we have wandered away.  Today as you pray, will you imagine the Master  praying with you and for you? Friend, how confident would you be if you KNEW that He was praying for you?
