Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. – Rom 8:34

When you really need prayer, whom do you call? Do you hop on the phone with your mom and dad? Do you make an appointment to come in and meet with your pastor? All of those are great options; but God offers us an even better prayer warrior.

Bring your prayer requests straight to Jesus. Jesus Christ, God’s Only Son, sits at the right hand of God and intercedes for us! Who better to communicate our wants and needs to God the Father than His Only Son! If Jesus is praying for you, whom else do you need on your side? If the Son of Man sits on His throne and whispers all your wants, needs and desires into God’s ear, isn’t that enough?

Today is going to be a great day. Why? Because you have Jesus Christ praying for you. If Jesus is for you, nobody who comes against you stands a chance.

Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. – Rom 8:27

Prayer:

Father, thank You that Jesus always takes prayer requests. When I need help, remind me to go straight to the Source!
