Daily Prayer & Devotion
Dear Lord God,
Thank You for loving me so much that You sent Jesus to rescue me from my sins and from death.
Thank You that Jesus is my Savior and Intercessor, praying for me and standing in my place before You when I sin and when I fall short of Your holiness...
For there is one God and one Mediator
between God and men,
the Man Christ Jesus
1 Timothy 2:5
Sometimes there is so much to pray for, so many needs and so much heartache, that Ido not know what to say.
But You know my thoughts and what is on my heart.
You know my needs.
You know my burdens...
“Ask, and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find;
knock, and it will be opened to you."
My Lord God, I come to You now offering my words of praise and thanksgiving to You.
I trust You to always hear my prayers.
I love You.
In Jesus’ loving name I pray,
Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God
Jesus: The Son Who Is
Consecrated For Evermore
For the law maketh men high priests
which have infirmity;
but the word of the oath,
which was since the law,
maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.
As an Intercessor, Jesus doesn’t need to be consecrated every day, as the Old Testament priests had to sacrifice daily for their sins. They had to be consecrated time and again because they sinned. It was impossible for them to enter God’s presence unless they were cleansed each time they approached God. Jesus is the Son Who Is Consecrated For Evermore. He was eternally consecrated—prepared—to continually enter God’s presence for you. Jesus was perfect—without sin—so He could be our Sin Bearer. So now Jesus is the constant Intercessor for our sins. All day and every day, He stands ready to intercede to the Father for us.
Jesus, I constantly need You to intercede for me, because I often fail. Intercede to the Father for me. Sometimes I give in to temptation; pray to
Jesus has an “unchangeable priesthood” (Hebrews 7:24). He will intercede to the Father for you. Remember, “The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). Did you see that word “all”? He cleanses you totally from sin; so confess it, repent and ask Jesus to forgive it. Then seek His power to overcome it. Jesus wants to give you victory. He stands in the Father’s presence for you.
Jesus, I am amazed at Your grace and forgiveness. Thank You for cleansing me. Now make continued intercession for me. Amen.
