"I have prayed for thee."

"I have prayed for thee."
 Luke 22:32

How encouraging is the thought of the Redeemer's never- ceasing intercession for us.
 When we pray, He pleads for us;  
and when we are not praying, He is advocating our cause, 
and by His supplications shielding us from unseen dangers. 

Notice the word of comfort addressed to Peter--"Simon, Simon, 
Satan hath desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat; but"--what? 
"But go and pray for yourself." 

That would be good advice, but it is not so written. 
Neither does he say, "But I will keep you watchful, 
and so you shall be preserved."

 That were a great blessing. 
No, it is, "But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not."  
We little know what we owe to our Saviour's prayers. 

When we reach the hill-tops of heaven, 
and look back upon all the way whereby the Lord our God hath led us, 
how we shall praise Him who, before the eternal throne,
 undid the mischief which Satan was doing upon earth. 

How shall we thank Him because He never held His peace, 
but day and night pointed to the wounds upon His hands, 
and carried our names upon His breastplate! 
Even before Satan had begun to tempt, Jesus had forestalled him and entered a plea in heaven. 

Mercy outruns malice. 
Mark, He does not say, "Satan hath desired to have you." 
 He checks Satan even in his very desire, and nips it in the bud. He does not say, 
"But I have desired to pray for you." 

No, but "I have prayed for you: I have done it already; 
I have gone to court and entered a counterplea even before an accusation is made." 

O Jesus, what a comfort it is that thou hast pleaded our cause against our unseen enemies; 
countermined their mines, and unmasked their ambushes. 
Here is a matter for joy, gratitude, hope, and confidence.

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, 

you can be accepted in to his kingdom. 

 I invite you to let him to make of you what 

He always wanted. 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 
who died for me to make me free of sin, 
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
I confess that He is the son of God. 
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask. 
“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
 not in its fashion and manner,
 but in the truth which it contains.” 
.... Reflection and inspiration from the "Prince of Preachers,"
 Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

 The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God, 
without acquiring any monetary reward. 
God gave me the salvation for free, 
so I share the gospel of his word the same way ..
