Jesus: Intercessor and High Priest

Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names

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. -Hebrews 4:14-15 NJKV

Jesus lived prayer and taught prayer. He prayed at different times and for various amounts of time. He prayed in secret and He prayed in public. He prayed about personal matters and matters concerning others. He prayed for His friends and for His enemies. he prayed as a man dependent upon His Father, seeking to please Him and glorify Him in all things.

Through prayer, He drew near to His Father so that He could draw us nearer to His heart. He knelt in humility so that He could raise us up to new heights. He poured out His soul so that He could comfort us in every sorrow. As our High Priest, He prayed for our unity, our sanctification, our joy, our love, our keeping, our ministry, and our future purpose.

Today, Jesus as your High Priest is praying for you. Think of it as you get up in the morning, as you go through your day, as you face your enemies, as you walk through your problems, as you return to your home, and as you rest in your bed—Jesus, the One who knows you best and loves you most, is praying for you.
