Today you find yourself facing threats that were unimaginable just 10 years ago. Changes are dizzying. Political and moral evil is on the march. The child of God navigates a world that is explosive.
Do you have children and grandchildren who depend on you? That makes it all the more difficult. You wonder what will happen to them. You pray, “Lord, how can I protect them in such a violent time?”
Our souls are vexed by the parading of evil, perversion, and bloodshed. What was once in the back alleys is now front and center for all to see.
For this and many other reasons, we need something fresh and unshakable. We need whatever it was Daniel had in the lion’s den. We need authority to open prison doors. We need courage that conquers the future even before we get there. We must walk a walk that conquers sickness, dwindling resources, and any sudden attack on our soul.
We also need to see the tactics of Satan. He knows his time is short, he is racing to take as many down with him as he can.
Powerful preaching will only take us so far. Worship music may quell dismaying emotions temporarily, but we need something more—something unshakable in the core of our being. We need an anchor that holds us, no matter what.
What do we need? What fear-killing insight should burn in our soul?
It’s this: Imagine if you could hear Jesus praying for you. Imagine what that would mean to you. Imagine how that can kill your fear of any shocking attacks that come? Imagine being transported in a vision, and beholding Jesus mentioning your name. Imagine hearing Him taking your needs, your burdens, and your cares directly to the Father.
Stop right now. Open your heart wide. Let me give you the fear-killing facts about Jesus praying for you:
Jesus started praying for you the instant you got saved. The world can’t enjoy the benefit of His prayers, but we as believers can. John17:9, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.”
Jesus will never stop praying for you. Hebrews 7:25, “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”
Can you see Him? Right now He is lifting your situation before the Father in unending prayer.
Jesus is asking the Father to protect you from Satan. John 17:15, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.”
Jesus has prayed in advance of your greatest hour of testing, just as He did for Peter. Luke 22:32, “But I have prayed for you (Peter), that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
Here is the most important fact about Jesus’ praying for you: He says you are His child. Let’s take a closer look at what that means.
His love for you is not just tender—it’s fierce.
Consider the momma grizzly as she snuggles her cub. She is the essence of tender love. Now, try to come between her and her cub. The loving mom instantly becomes the most terrifying creature on earth. She will stop at nothing to protect her cub. Both are expressions of the same love…a love God but in her.
The same Jesus who comforts you with unmatched tenderness turns His wrath on the evil one when you are threatened. It would be breathtaking to see the contrast in His intercession before the Father when you need comfort, and when you need to be rescued from the attack of the evil one.
Jesus will not let anything come between you and Him. Paul said it this way: Romans 8:38, “For I am fully convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor demons, nor the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
If you could hear how Jesus is praying for you right now, you would not fear a million enemies.
