Someone who Prays

How has your Sunday been?  I went to church and we had a time of prayer:  Someone’s grandchild was very sick; someone’s mum was sick; someone’s wife had been into hospital for an operation.  Afterwards, as we carried on with the singing, I got to thinking:  What if you don’t have people around you to pray for your family?  Even as a churchgoer, you might not be able to ask people to pray publicly for your particular problems.  Maybe you haven’t been there long and don’t know the people well enough; maybe the problems are too painful; maybe they’re confidential – whatever it is, you don’t feel part of a church-family who prays for you.

Well, into my mind came Romans 8:34:  “Christ Jesus who died – more than that, who was raised to life – is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”  Interceding means He’s pleading for us – so yes, we do have someone praying for us:  Jesus Himself.

Why don’t you think of that next time you’re feeling excluded?  Jesus is at God’s right hand, praying to the Father – for you.
