Christ’s Intercession for the Tempted
“Simon, Simon, pay attention! Satan has demanded to have you all, to sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. When you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
[Luke 22:31-32 NET]
Though faint my prayers, and cold my love
My stedfast hope shall not remove,
While Jesus intercedes above.
Against me earth and hell combine;
But on my side is power Divine;
Jesus is all, and he is mine.
