They Pray For Us (Short Devotional)

by | Apr 3, 2020 | Theology

[Rom 8:26–27] Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

[Hebrews 7:25] Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

Saints, ponder this today. That you have a risen and exalted Savior and LORD who intercedes for you in heaven, ensuring our perseverance and preservation until the culmination of redemptive history. Not only that, the Holy Spirit himself groans and intercedes for us on earth as we await our glorification. What a glorious thought that no matter how bad times can be, no matter what kingdoms and nations will rise and fall, we have an enduring promise. That we have an eternal King whose righteous prayers avail much on our behalf. And we have a comforting and conquering Spirit, who is united with us in our new nature. Who, in secret, petitions the throne room of heaven when we are overcome with sorrow, sickness, and sin.

I pray this will encourage you today. As the God of heaven has truly not left you orphans. He is our beloved Father, who has given us the power to persevere through the prayers of Son and the Spirit. With this in mind then, if God be for us, who or what can prevail against us?
