Jesus is Praying

"The former priests were...prevented by death from continuing in office, but he [Jesus] holds his priesthood permanently...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." (Hebrews 7:24-25)

 It's good to know that Jesus is praying for Ian harder than any of us are. 

Right now, our perfect mediator is intercessing before his Father on Ian's behalf. I know Ian is continuing his lifetime practice of drawing near to God through Jesus, so that means that Jesus always lives to make intercession, or prayer, for Ian. 

So if Jesus is praying for him, we know that Ian must be benefiting from this. So let's keep praying for Ian along with our Savior!

OF COURSE we will continue to pray with you! Have been since the accident and will continue until this beautiful young man returns to us completely. God will have the last word and it will be good. With love and prayers,

"It's good to know that Jesus is praying for Ian harder than any of us are."...and it's awesome to think about it, too!
And, Ben, besides Jesus Romans 8:26 says:

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

The whole Trinity is involved in our prayers for Ian! More than my feeble mind can comprehend!

Still Praying!
