Sometimes life feels like it’s slipping away from us. We feel like, in real time, we’re loosing it- loosing control, loosing sight, and losing focus, but someone is praying for you. When you decided to lay down your life and pick up the life Jesus led, everything Jesus prayed, everything He did, and everything God granted Him, YOU became the beneficiary of. You received the benefits of those things. Jesus prayed this for YOU:
Holy Father, guard them as they pursue this life
That you conferred [honored] as a gift through me,
So they can be one heart and mind
As we are one heart and mind.
As long as I was with them, I guarded them
In the pursuit of the life you gave through me;
-John 17 (MSG)
Even unto this day, this prayer STILL stands and you and I are still receiving the benefits of Jesus’ words to the Father for us, laboring in prayer for us, and God granting Him the “YES” to this prayer. So, be encouraged. Someone is praying for you. YES! Even Jesus! The one we pray to, worship, and call our savior, He’s STILL speaking to the Father on YOUR behalf. Be encouraged, the King of Glory fights and vindicates you.
Pray This Prayer With Me
“Lord, we just want to thank you so much for being our way to the Father. We know that without you, we have no right to speak to the Almighty, but you decided to pave that way for us and we are grateful- even beyond words. Continue to remind us that we will never have to fight alone and we don’t ever have to feel like we’re going through life unguarded and without help because you’ve already prayed that the Father will guard us and we know God has honored your Words towards us. So, Lord we go forth in your encouragement you’ve prayed over us. We love you and today we surrender our day to you. We pray that you move today in whatever way you feel necessary. Have your way. We love you and worship you with our lives because that’s the least we can do since you gave yours for us. Thank you Lord, Amen.”
