Entrusting Ourselves to the Prayer of the Lord Jesus

Bible Verses

(RcV) Hebrews 7:25 Hence also He is able to save to the uttermost Those who come forward to God through Him, since He lives always to intercede for them. (26) For such a High Priest was also fitting to us...

Words of Ministry

We should not trust in our own prayer. Rather, we should trust in the prayer of the Lord Jesus. It is not a matter of us praying fervently every day. The question is not how many times we have prayed in the last few days. It is not our prayer that keeps us saved to the end; it is the prayer of the Lord Jesus that can keep us saved to the end. I do not know how many of us here tonight believe in the power of the prayer of the Lord Jesus. Can you entrust yourself without reservation to the prayer of the Lord Jesus? You may think that Satan's temptations are severe, the world's temptations are strong, the fleshly desires are intense, and Satan's attacks are heavy. I cannot agree with your word. If we look at ourselves, oftentimes we will feel like saying we are finished. After a few more temptations from Satan, we think that our flesh will be out of strength. Many times we feel discouraged and are unable to continue in prayer. At such times, we need to look to the Lord Jesus. He is our High Priest. We have to lift our head and look to Him. We should say, "I cannot make it . I cannot even pray. Yet I will trust in Him. He is my High Priest....?We have to rely on Him. Since we have such a High Priest interceding for us, would it be possible for us to lose our salvation?
