Apostle Grace Lubega
Hebrews 7:25(KJV); 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.
Christ ever lives to make intercession for us. You may ask yourself, “How does He intercede? Does He pray as some Christians pray? Does He speak to the Father like some do, as victims, slaves and disadvantaged?”
If you cry to the Father saying, “God, I am poor, I need your intervention. I know I am nothing but I beseech you to remove me from the clutches of poverty”, do you think that Jesus Christ goes to the Father and says, “Father, he is poor and nothing; help him and deliver him from the hands of poverty?”
He does not!
Here is the prayer of the son when He intercedes for such a saint. “Father, help him see what I finished and accomplished at the cross of Calvary, open his eyes to the understanding that I was made poor that he might be rich, cause him to see that he has been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places.” This is the intercession of the son and it must form the pattern of how we pray too.
The prayer room is not for actors. Some people act poor, diseased and disadvantaged. Heaven doesn’t get them. It doesn’t star in such dramas on false humility.
The next time you get into prayer, pray like a true son: one who knows it is finished, one who understands that God hears him and one who believes that whatsoever he desires has already been provided.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The next time you get into prayer, pray like a true son: one who knows it is finished, one who understands that God hears him and one who believes that whatsoever he desires has already been provided.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I know that You are the God that answers prayer. You tore the veil and gave me access to the deepest levels of Your presence. Every day of my life, I choose to approach Your throne in boldness, knowing who I am and what You have done in me. Because I pray in this understanding, I see great results through prayer.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
