On earth, Jesus prayed for His followers (John 17). Now… in heaven… He continues to pray for them. Consider the following…
The best way for our prayer life not to “heap up empty phrases” (Mt 6:7) that are meaningless and therefore are pointless to God, is to model our prayers after those found in God’s inspired Scripture. The way to do this is to read prayers recorded in Scripture regularly and often.
Since “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Ro 10:17), when we read Scripture we “hear” the voice of God Himself through the Holy Spirit! Think about that! In the same way we can “hear” a song in our mind, God’s voice is “heard” in our mind when we read His Word!
It is written in 1 Cor 2:16 that “We have the mind of Christ.” I suggest that the “Mind of Christ” is the written Word of God… inspired by the Holy Spirit. Toward this end consider that having “The Mind of Christ” (“Hearing” God’s voice when we read Scripture) is a supernatural provision given to us by God Himself. As it is written in 2 Peter 1:3-4
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godlinessthrough the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence, 4 by which He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through themyou may become partakers of the divine nature…(ESV)
 A few thoughts:
1.       God’s power is supernatural and is only obtained by His revelation (Mt 16:15-17),
2.       God is the ultimate source of all things good and holy,
3.       God’s gifts apply to EVERYTHING,
4.       God’s knowledge is only possible by knowing Jesus Christ,
5.       God’s gift are His promises,
6.       His promises are ONLY found in Scripture,
7.       The result is… somehow, by a miracle of God… God’s Divine nature abides in us!
There is something special and supernatural when Jesus prays… which He is doing… right now… sitting on His throne next to God the Father. Thus the following…

Hebrews 7:24 He (Jesus) holds His priesthood permanently, because He continues forever. 25 Consequently, He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

Romans 8:33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.

1 John 2:1 If anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus…

Hebrews 9:24 For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.

John 14:16 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, to be with you forever

With all this being true, why do we ever fear? Why are we ever anxious??
