Got Needs?

Ever have that heartsick feeling when you fail—again? There is a weakness you can't seem to conquer? 

I did recently and I wanted someone to pray with me. I couldn't seem to handle this need on my own. I scrolled through the names in my text messages. 

I considered several friends: 
  • No, she wouldn't understand
  • No, she is always too busy
  • Yes, now she is a person who prays alot!
I punched in my message to my prayer warrior friend but she didn't respond. Apparently she was busy that day....

I turned back to my Bible study homework on Revelations chapter 4—the throne room of God. Glorious! 

Jesus is "there from now to eternity 
to save everyone who comes to God
through him, 
always on the job
to speak up for them
(Hebrews 7:25)" The Message

"God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along.
If we don't know how or what to pray,
it doesn't matter.
He does our praying in and for us,
making prayer out of our wordless sighs,
our aching groans.
He knows us far better than we know ourselves,
...and keeps us present before God.
(Romans 8:26-28)" The Message

It hit me; I had my prayer warrior. He sits at the right hand of His Dad always, ready to speak for my needs. I don't have to text Him, or wait through His voice mail message to ask Him to get back with me. That's Glorious!

  1. I love this - yes Jesus is our prayer warrior. And you know I keep leaning on the verse about the golden bowls of incense - the prayers of the saints.
