Prayers In Need of Remedy
Many of our prayers are mere mistakes. We complain when we should praise; we ask what would do us hurt, and are unwilling to receive what would do us much good. Our Lord Jesus, our interceding Advocate puts all to right. He can say over our prayers rightly, He can make good sense of them, can purge them of their faults, can spy out anything of His own Spirit in them. And lastly, so importantly, add His own incense to them, Rev. 8:3. And thus they are accepted. In John 17 we can best understand Christ’s heart and work in intercession. FOOT-STOOL SUPPLICATIONS of believers would be all quite lost, if it were not for the Savior’s THRONE-INTERCESSIONS.
