As members of the Sandwich Generation dealing with the issues of caring for elderly parents and helping with grandkids, do you ever find yourself in a crisis and unable to call and ask anyone to pray? Maybe there is no phone, no time, or it's too late and you don't want to wake anyone.
Did you know that you ALWAYS have someone praying for you?!?!
Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant….because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest meets our need--one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Hebrews 7:22,25-26
There's a LOT in these inspirational and encouraging Bible verses but for today, let's focus on eight words. "He ALWAYS lives to intercede for THEM." Awesome words to know that Jesus LIVES to INTERCEDE for THEM. Even more awesome to realize that THEM means US! His children. As one pastor puts it, "His kids!"
KNOW that as you go through your day, whether it's easy or hard, quiet or busy, full of sorrow or full of joy, Jesus prays for each one of you who are His children! What wonderful words of encouragement for all of us in the Sandwich Generation!
