Jesus prayed for us on earth. He prayed for Peter.
"Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not, " Luke 22: 31,32a.
He prayed for all who believe on Him. I love to read Jesus' words in John 17. This is a wonderful chapter that reveals the heart of Jesus for His Church.
"I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me, for they are thine," John 17:9.
And we know that Jesus lives and that he is seated "at the right hand of God" (Romans 8:34), where He ever lives to make "intercession" for us.
"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 7:25.
Of course, Jesus prays for me. He prays for you. What an amazing thought.
