I have prayed for you… That your faith would not fail, –and thus YOU prevail…
“But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.””
Luke 22:32 NKJV
There is no greater consolation in temptation than to understand the power of praying, and then realize it is Jesus, Himself, who is praying for you!
Strength is the real and final goal.
“Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
Our Great Intercessory.
Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Hebrews 4:11-16 NKJV
