Graced by His Prayers

Graced by His Prayers
Pastor Adrian Rogers

"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

Do you ever feel you are all alone when a struggle hits your life?

Tell yourself, "I am graced by His prayers."

Jesus is watching over you, and He is praying for you. The Savior. The Shepherd. The King. The Prince. He is praying for you! Do you feel encouraged? I do!

Just to know that the One who died for me "ever liveth to make intercession" for me is enough. He lives to stand in the gap for you and for me. What a mighty God we serve! What mercy we don't deserve! You are on Jesus' prayer list!


He knows you. And He is praying you through the eye of the storm.

Do you have a prayer list? Go through that list today and pray for someone you haven't prayed for in awhile and trust God to answer, even today!

We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts, for it is impossible to live one way and pray another. --William Law

If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands toward God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks. --Abba Zeno

We forget that God sometimes has to say No. We pray to Him as our heavenly Father, and like wise human fathers, He often says, No, not from whim or caprice, but from wisdom and from love, and knowing what is best for us. --Peter Marshall

The more praying there is in the world, the better the world will be, the mightier the forces against evil everywhere. Prayer, in one phase of its operation, is a disinfectant and a preventive. It purifies the air; it destroys the contagion of evil. Prayer is no fitful, short-lived thing. It is no voice crying unheard and unheeded in the silence. It is a voice which goes into God's ear, and it lives as long as God's ear is open to holy pleas, as long as God's heart is alive to holy things. God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. The lips that uttered them may be closed to death, the heart that felt them may have ceased to beat, but the prayers live before God, and God's heart is set on them and prayers outlive the lives of those who uttered them; they outlive a generation, outlive an age, outlive a world. That man is the most immortal who has done the most and the best praying. They are God heroes, God's saints, God's servants, God's vicegerents. A man can pray better because of the prayers of the past; a man can live holier because of the prayers of the past; the man of many and acceptable prayers has done the truest and greatest service to the incoming generation. The prayers of God's saints strengthen the unborn generation against the desolating waves of sin and evil. --Edward McKendree (E. M.) Bounds

Come & Listen -- David Cowder Band

Below is a poem that KoolChristian Girl wrote to go with this song:

He may allow pain
But He won't let us stay that way...

Pain comes
Tears fall
Your heart is broken

If there really is a God
Surely He must not care
'Cause the pain is still there,

You say you don't believe in Him,
So why do you think He hates you?
Don't you know there's more?

Don't you know He loves you?
He's holding your heart
Reaching down to you

He may allow the pain
But He won't let us stay broken
The dark night won't last forever
Cause He's good and He loves you.

It seems like forever
Since you felt like you were loved
That someone cares for you

You think you're all alone
Lost within the pain
Wandering in the darkness
But don't you know He's been there all along?

But if there's something inside your heart
That keeps you believing,
Keeps you running back to Him

Then lift up your hands
And hear His call to you.

Don't you know I love you?
I'm holding your heart
Reaching down to you

I will allow the pain
But I won't let you stay broken
I will strengthen and restore you
The dark night won't last forever
For I am good and I love you.

Healing begins
Peace arises
Strength renewed
When you come

So come now
Return to the Lord
He has broken you down
But He will heal you
Allowed the pain
But won't let you stay that way.

Come now
Return to Him
Pour out your heart to Him
Seek Him Now
Listen for His voice
There's more than what you're seeing now.

Hear the cry of redemption
Looking into His eyes
Seeing love and grace beyond measure
Come now
And listen.

He loves you
He's holding your heart
Reaching down to you

He may allow the pain
But He won't let us stay broken
The dark night won't last forever
Cause He's good and He loves you.

Come now
When you're broken
When you're hurting
When you're filled with joy
When you're dancing on the mountain
Come now.

Don't wait
Come now.

And remember...

He may allow the pain
But He won't let us stay that way
He came to restore and heal what was broken...
