Is Jesus Praying For You?

Am so encouraged to know that other Christians are praying for me, but to read the prayer of Jesus Christ in John 17 is not only a greater spiritual boost; but a great privilege: "I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours" (John 17:9, NKJV).

Though others would claim that Jesus is praying for everyone in the world, He qualified it in His words: "...for those whom You have given Me" -- they are those who believe in Him (verse 20). As He also said in John 6:37, "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me..."

Not all in the world are being prayed for by Jesus Christ. But "All that the Father gives..." to Him. For they are those who believe in Him.

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
