The Perfect Prayer Partner

(Jesus) is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. (Romans 8:34)

How good it is to know that because of God’s kindness to us our prayers can also touch heaven. Sometimes when we pray we may struggle with words and feelings of inadequacy, but Jesus taught His followers that we “ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1). God’s Word shows us that one of the reasons we can do this is that Jesus Himself “is at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us” (Rom. 8:34).

We never pray alone, because Jesus is praying for us. He hears us as we pray, and speaks to the Father on our behalf. We don’t have to worry about the eloquence of our words, because no one understands us like Jesus. He helps us in every way, presenting our needs before God. He also knows when the answers we ask for would not be good for us, handling every request or concern with perfect wisdom and love.

Jesus is the perfect prayer partner—the friend who intercedes for us with immeasurable kindness. His prayers for us are beautiful beyond words, and should encourage us to always pray with thankfulness.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for interceding for me with love. Help me to love and serve You with my prayers today. Amen.

As I read this I tried imagining in my mind, Jesus sitting at the right hand of God, making intercession for me as I pray. I think if we would keep that at the forefront of our minds as we go to God in prayer it would change how we see prayer. Prayer is so so important in our daily lives, and to know Jesus is intently listening to us when we take time to go to Him in prayer and then making intercession for us, is incredible to me. What love! I am loved, you are loved, you are cherished by the most genuine friend you could ever have, He truly is the best prayer partner. Go to Him today, He’s waiting to hear from you, to intercede on your behalf. He is immeasurable!

Have a beautiful day in The Lord!
