Jesus is our intercessor! Now that His atoning work of the cross is done, He serves as our High Priest before the Father on our behalf (Hebrews 9.11,14,24). Before He left this earth, He promised that what we ask in His name and He will provide (John 14.13,14; 15.716). So that, as Andrew Murray says, His work is done through the “intercession that rises from the earth. He seeks to rouse the spirit of intercession so that He may be able to bestow His blessings on mankind.” Jesus is our intercessor and He has invited us into His ministry of intercession.
