New Lutheran Quote of the Day
All the praying [our Lord] did during His three years of ministry was just a prelude to His great work of intercession after His resurrection and ascension. Since the risen Lord Jesus is now our high priest in the heavenly sanctuary, He continues His work of prayer. He no longer intercedes for a few people at a time, as He once did here on earth; He intercedes in heaven itself with God the Father for the whole human family. Yet, amazingly, He is also present with us here on earth. In the Church, our Lord joins us and includes us in His intercession. -- Dr. John Kleinig, *Grace upon Grace* p. 159.
