Still Praying

Some people have the benefit of being prayed for their entire lives. From birth, they have had a steady stream of prayers by faithful family members. That isn’t the case for everyone. Some didn’t grow up in Christian homes or even if they did, they weren’t necessarily praying homes. Do not dismay if you fall into the latter category.

There is one who has prayed for you from the beginning. His name is Jesus. It is His delight, and a sign of His inheritance for you, that He prays. He sits right beside His Dad, with scarred hands, asking for the reality of the completed work on the cross to become your daily victory.

Father, please strengthen me as I receive the availing prayers of your Son.

Do you believe Jesus hears you when you pray?
