When things were not going well with the Reformation, Melancthon, the younger colleague of Luther, walked by a room with some children in it, and the door was cracked, and he heard the children praying. Then he went out to his followers bolstered in spirit and he said, “Take heart, the children are praying!”
This is my message for you. When life is tough and won’t come together, take heart! The Son of God is praying for you! For real! He is praying for you! It is true even now. Hebrews 7:25 “He is able to save to the uttermostthose who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”
John 17 (our text this week) is the prayer of Jesus for us! It’s a prayer layered with depth and power. It is a window into the heart of God. It is encouraging and enlightening. Read it and let’s talk. I hope to see you Sunday!
