Thank God Jesus Prayed Ahead

Thank God Jesus prayed ahead.

Lk.22:31-32 ďAnd the Lord said, ďSimon, Simon! Indeed Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat, but I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to me, strengthen your brethren.Ē(NKJV).

Our Lord knows the end from the beginning.
Often like Simon Peter, we assume we are supermen.
We are almost sure we are above sinning.
But the reality soon dons on us that we are still men.

Like the conversation between God and Satan,
Concerning Job, Godís favorite in righteousness,
The Evil one asks for permission to shake the Spartan,
And he unleashes his arsenal with all seriousness.

Thank God He has prayed for us ahead.
Even though we fail and fall like a pack of cards,
He forgives and upholds us instead.
And He is still interceding at Fatherís right hand.

So Let us hold on to Godís righteousness always.
Our own Ďholier than thouí is inadequate.
We may assume we are above board in many ways,
Only Godís grace and mercy are appropriate.

Thank God Jesus prayed ahead,
It is good to know when I falter,
He does not prefer me dead.
By His prayer, I can encourage my brother.
