Intercession of Yeshua for His Own

In this article Tim Hegg looks at the seven requests as Yeshua prays just before being crucified, as recorded for us in John 17. The focus of this study is Yeshua’s intercession for His own within this “high priestly” prayer. Hegg looks at this passage and shows its direct application for our own spiritual lives. Hegg shows that Yeshua’s prayer of intercession in the garden is a model of the intercession He continues to make for His people, as Yeshua sits at the right hand of the Father. Since Yeshua is the Son of God, His prayers are always granted. Therefore, our salvation is secured by the continued prayer of Yeshua, for He always lives to make intercession for the elect.
