Do you make Jesus pray in vain?

Do you make Jesus pray in vain?  If you’re like me, the answer’s yes.  Way too often. Why does it matter? We’re still saved, aren’t we? What’s the big deal?

Do you make Jesus pray in vain?

Satan is the accuser.  He’s out to destroy all of us.  With Jesus praying for us, how can Satan ever win?

 My first version of this was in April 2015. I wish I could say I don’t make Jesus pray in vain anymore. I could say it. But it wouldn’t be true. So let’s bring this up to date here in 2022.

Like now.  I can’t tell you how much I feel I’ve wasted His prayers.  Take the past year or so – looking for something or someone to make this life worth living.   I feel like my life really has been passed through a flour sifter.  It’s in tiny little pieces.  What I expected to be the best time of my life is turning out to be even worse than anything that came before.  If Jesus is praying for me, why am I still being sifted?

That last paragraph is from the original. I have to say, there were good things between 2015 and 2022. But then there were the continuing troubles that we’re promised. A few surgeries, including one that unsuccessfully tried to remove prostate cancer.
