But it's true. It's one of the glorious facts of the gospel. Our Saviour lives to make intercession for us.
Why does He have to pray for me, you might ask?
Because the Enemy desires to sift me like wheat, just like he wanted to sift Peter. And I know it. I feel the whispered temptations to do those things which are a mediocre waste of time, instead of redeeming the time by doing those things which count for eternity. I hear the snide accusations of failure as I hang my head in agreement - yes, I said that wrong thing, yes, I did that awful deed, yes, I thought that terrible thought.
But then, I remember. Hebrews 7:25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.
The Irish Calvinist wrote about it - Satan is Preying so the Saviour is Praying. He asks,
And so we should.
