Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: Intercessor
    But He, because He continues forever,
    has an unchangeable priesthood.
    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.
    Hebrews 7:24-25
    Jesus is your Intercessor. When He was raised from the dead, He ascended into Heaven to sit at the right hand of God the Father. As your Intercessor, Jesus can present your prayers to the Father, just as a lawyer presents a case to the judge. And, just as a lawyer speaks on behalf of another, so Jesus will present your case to the heavenly Father. You come to the Father through Jesus.
    I need an intercessor because I feel so unworthy to pray. Jesus, be my Intercessor; ask the Father to forgive my sin and cleanse me by Your blood.
    Maybe you’ve not received answers to your prayers because you’ve asked for the wrong thing, or you’ve asked with the wrong attitude, or you’ve asked at the wrong time. Come to the Father through Jesus; He will be your Intercessor to communicate your prayers to the Father. He will pray the right request at the right time with the right attitude. Jesus can be your Intercessor, because He became flesh and lived among us as a man (John 1:14). As your high priest, He understands your weaknesses, for He faced the same temptations that you face yet did not sin. Now you can come boldly to the throne of the heavenly Father through Jesus
    (Hebrews 4:15-16).
    Thank You for understanding me and forgiving me. Thank You for correctly presenting my prayers to the Father. I feel confident when You plead my case for me. Amen.

    As your Intercessor, Jesus can plead your case to the Father.
