HE PRAYED FOR YOU

‘Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word…’ – John 17 vs 20

Hello, this indeed is a beautiful topic I am talking about this moment. Receive it with Faith mixed in your Heart, and be Richly Blessed. AMEN.

Our above opening scripture are the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, and notice what He says once more;

‘Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word…’ – John 17 vs 20 {KJV}

In His prayer to God for His disciples He made this statement, denoting that He wasn’t saying those prayers to God only for His then disciples (followers), but also for all who would later on Believe on Him through their preachings, and you know what? That includes you and I who have Believed on Jesus Christ through their writings in the Holy Scriptures. Therefore, all that the Lord said to the Father in that chapter was for you also, was for me too. – Selah

But Beloved, we have to be resolute concerning this one particular fact, which is this; Is there any Prayer the Lord Jesus made to the Father that He didn’t answer? If I am asked that question, I would say certainly not, because Jesus was the Beloved Son of God in Truth and Verity. But is there any scriptural backing to that as to the Father always hearing the Lord Jesus Christ when He prays? Let’s see;

‘…And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

And I knew that thou hearest me always…’ – John 11 vs 41 – 42 {KING JAMES VERSION}

Waow, what a piece we have there. Jesus said that He knows that God hears Him always when He prays. Waow! That depicts to us that there was never a prayer Jesus made that there was no answer from the Father. Hence Brothers and Sisters, if it be so that the Lord has prayed for us, what prayer did He make for us to the Father? You can see them right from the very verse 1 up to the verse 26, and you can sure bank your Faith on them.

For example, in the verse 15, the Lord Jesus Christ prays thus;

‘I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.’ – {KJV}

He prays for us of the Father that we might be kept from the evil. The Evil as used simply means The Evil One (The works and the devices of the devil). So in other words, Jesus thus prayed that we should be kept from every form of wickedness in this world. If therefore we are assured that the Father answered that prayer of His, then we should also be of full assurance in our hearts that we are kept from evil of all sorts, from violence, from wickedness, from destruction, from pestilences, from the hazards of war, from the death of violence around our neighborhood, from the horror of terrorism, from all these things; been fully assured that a thousand shall fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand, and it shall not come near us even as the scripture has said. Be Girt up with Faith!

He Prayed for you. Rejoice!

God Bless You.
