David Jeremiah Daily Devotional July 30 2022 :
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.
Recommended Reading: Hebrews 7:23-25
Our Lord’s prayer life didn’t stop when He ascended to heaven. While He was on earth, He looked up to heaven when He prayed. Now on the throne He has only to look over, as it were, and talk to the Father on behalf of His children.
Perhaps you wished you had someone who would pray for you with more intensity. Maybe you wonder if anyone ever really prays for you in an earnest manner. Yes! Jesus makes intercession for you. The word “intercession” means to intercede for another, to speak on their behalf as by pleading or petition. Hebrews 7:25 says, “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”
Take a moment to ponder this: Your Savior prays for you. He is doing so right now.
God’s hearing of our prayers doth not depend upon sanctification, but upon Christ’s intercession.
