God has made His people a ‘Kingdom of priests.’ If Jesus is our Great High Priest then how do we function as priests? There are many ways, but one of these is through intercessory prayer for fellow Christians. See from how your prayers SHOULD be more about the spiritual benefit of other believers, and for the expansion of Christ’s Kingdom than about our immediate felt needs. What do you pray for? Ask yourself this question and may you be changed by God’s sanctifying grace as needed.
18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, 19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.
