When God Talked to God
The greatest prayer ever prayed was on the night of Jesus’ betrayal. At His lowest point, facing His trial and the cross, Jesus soars into the heavenlies and prays for His disciples and, yes, even for us. His ministry of intercession for believers continues because the Word tells us that “He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25). If you want to know what God the Son is doing right now, you need to engage in this study. It will stretch you, encourage you, and strengthen you. The Lord is praying for us, and what He prayed over 2,000 years ago still applies today.
