Your Praying Priest

"But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."
Hebrews 7:24-25

When Peter was faced with his greatest test, Jesus called him aside and warned him that Satan had desired to sift him as wheat. Here "desired" means, "to put a demand on something." Satan put a demand to take Peter out. When the enemy wants to attack you, he is not after your car or your job—he wants you dead.

But Jesus gave him comfort with these words, "But I have prayed for you that thy faith fail not," (Luke 22:32).  Jesus told him that he would rely on his flesh, but that there was a deposit inside him that would not fail. It was the faith of God. Peter denied but did not depart.

Jesus' prayer was answered. Peter remained true, returned to his senses, and was the support person for the disciples, and the preacher on Pentecost.

Jesus has not stopped praying for you. There is something greater in you than what is in the world. God's Word will not return back to Him without it accomplishing what it was sent out to do. So whatever you are meant to do today, guess what? Jesus is praying for you. You cannot fail if you tap into what is inside of you—your faith.
