Prayer thoughts

It has been a few weeks since I have written on prayer. Personally, I have been struggling in my prayer life, mostly from tiredness. It is amazing how our physical stamina affects our spiritual vitality. At the time when I would seemingly need to pray the most, in my tiredness and exhaustion, I actually pray the least. Praise God for our mediator Jesus Christ, who sits at the right hand of God and intercedes for us when we can’t intercede for ourselves.

I am so very grateful for our Savior Jesus Christ and his immense concern for each of us, that he prays for our very union with God, as he is united with the Father. John 17:21-23 says, “21 [I ask] that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

Will you begin praying for union with God? Will you pray for others to be united to the Father? This truly is the greatest prayer we can pray and even when we aren’t praying it, the Son is praying for us. To God be the glory!
