Our High Priest

When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened.
Luke 3:21

When Jesus prays, heaven opens. And He is now sitting at the right hand of God, praying for us. Jesus petitions God on our behalf daily.

In the Old Testament, people with prayer requests had to offer a sacrifice at the temple and have a priest intercede for them before God. When Jesus died on the cross, however, He changed everything. “Therefore…He always lives to make intercession for them. For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens” (Hebrews 7:24-26). We need only to come to Him, and our prayers will be answered. Jesus is on our side, praying with us and for us, and the Holy Spirit also intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.

Isn’t that amazing? Even when we can’t find the words to pray, the Holy Spirit is there, taking our requests before God Almighty. I want you to understand the team you have on your side as you pray. Claim Romans 8:31 today: “If God is for us, who can be against us?
