I Have Prayed for YOU
Pastor Jim Balzano, October 8, 2017
Peter sat before Jesus and heard the words out of Jesus’ mouth:  “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.”  I don’t know about you but I can think of a whole lot of things I would have rather heard Jesus say.  Who wants to be sifted?  Not me.  But, the words that followed next should have been of great comfort and encouragement to Peter…  ”But I have prayed for YOU."   Peter was going to be sifted, but he had someone praying for him before he went through it and while he was going through it.  Who prays for you matters!  And is there any better intercessor in our lives than Jesus?  Take heart…If you are being sifted…you are being prayed for.   And the one praying is better than the one sifting!
