One verse from our scripture reading for today powerfully spoke to me! Jesus is not only praying for us "but also for those who believe in (Him) through (our) message." (John 17:20)
What an amazing thought...to know that Jesus is praying for each of us AND for those who we have witnessed to, shared our faith with, or have spiritually mentored and are prayerfully concerned for.
Sometimes the burden of someone's spiritual growth can be quite overwhelming and I can feel quite drained "of strength" to monitor their continued spiritual growth.(122)
However, Jesus steps in to protect me and His gospel message with His own intercessory prayer!
So, I pray, "Lord, help me to just remain faithful. May any life I touch, be impacted, not just with MY testimony, but with YOUR discerning prayer for THEM."
