Bible Lesson: Prayers Of Jesus: Christian, We Are Called To Intercessory Prayer.

Location: The Upper Room, Jerusalem/ Gethsemane).

Lesson: Be Faithful In Suffering, To Pray.

Bible Texts:

Luke 22:31,32 KJV (Jesus interceded for Peter.)
31 And The Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Intercessory prayer, the duty of all Christian people. Has our Lord, placed someone on your heart to pray for?

I Peter 5:8 KJV
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Pray for your family, pray for your church, your pastor and his family, your deacons. Pray for your country and its leaders, that they may be people of The Living God.

The Apostle Paul, who wrote 14 of your New Testament books said....

I Thessalonians 5:17 KJV
Pray without ceasing.

Matthew 26:36-44 KJV
36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
38 Then saith He unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with Me.
39 And He went a little farther, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40 And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with Me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And He came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
44 And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

Mark 14:32-40 KJV
32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and He saith to His disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
33 And He taketh with Him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
35 And He went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
36 And He said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from Me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
37 And He cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?
38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
39 And again He went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
40 And when He returned, He found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer Him.

Luke 22:40-46 KJV
40 And when He was at the place, He said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless not My will, but thine, be done.
43 And there appeared an angel unto Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
44 And being in an agony He prayed more earnestly: and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45 And when He rose up from prayer, and was come to His disciples, He found them sleeping for sorrow,
46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

Our Savior was in agony of the cross, and yet He prayed.
John 13:15 KJV
For I have given you an example..."

John 15:18-20 KJV
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also.

Our Lord was “exceeding sorrowful”(Mark 14:34 KJV).

The world today, lives in sin, drink, and laughter, but Solomon warned...

Ecclesiastes 7:3 KJV
Sorrow is better* than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

*Better - Towb (Tobe): A good thing, best, favor, precious, good, favored.

It is good to be In sorrow, if it is sorrow in interceding prayer for others.

Romans 9:1,2 NLT
1 With Christ as my witness, I speak with utter truthfulness. My conscience and The Holy Spirit confirm it.
2 My heart is filled with bitter sorrow and unending grief
3 for my people..."

In our prayers, we must always pray as did Jesus.
Matthew 26:39 KJV
O My Father...not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Matthew 6:13 KJV
"...For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Our Lord is, directing everything to bless His people.

Romans 8:28 KJV
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

In deep sorrow of intercession, suffering, or affliction, do what Jesus did, pray, pray, pray!
II Corinthians 4:17 KJV
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

Proverbs 15:29 KJV
The Lord is far from the wicked: but He heareth the prayer of the righteous.

Jesus spent a great deal of His life, in prayer. Others may have slept, but Jesus prayed.
And what would be His words to us today?

Mark 14:38 KJV
Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

Our Savior intercedes yet for us today.

John 17:9 KJV
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given Me; for they are thine.

Romans 8:34 NLT
Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and He is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

Hebrews 7:25 KJV
Wherefore He (Jesus Christ) is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.
