I Am Praying for You

I have a Savior, He’s pleading in glory,
A dear, loving Savior, though earth friends be few;
And now He is watching in tenderness o’er me;
And, oh, that my Savior were your Savior, too.

For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
For you I am praying,
I’m praying for you.

I have a Father; to me He has given
A hope for eternity, blessed and true;
And soon He will call me to meet Him in heaven,
But, oh, that He’d let me bring you with me, too!

I have a robe; ’tis resplendent in whiteness,
Awaiting in glory my wondering view;
Oh, when I receive it all shining in brightness,
Dear friend, could I see you receiving one, too!

When He has found you, tell others the story,
That my loving Savior is your Savior, too;
Then pray that your Savior may bring them to glory,
And prayer will be answered—’twas answered for you!

Speak of that Savior, that Father in heaven,
That harp, crown, and robe which are waiting for you—
That peace you possess, and that rest to be given,
Still praying that Jesus may save them with you.

One thought on “I Am Praying for You”

  1. God s Word teaches that Jesus prays for us (Hebrews 7:25) and the Holy Spirit prays for us (Romans 8:26).  You can t get better than that!  Robert Murray McCheyne said, If I could hear Jesus praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a thousand enemies yet the distance makes no difference He IS praying for me!  Hallelujah!  If no one on earth remembered to call my name to God in prayer today, I know that the Son of God has interceded for me before the Father in Heaven. We are most like the Lord Jesus when we are praying for one another.  This is His ministry at this present hour, and we get to participate!  If you listen carefully you can hear Him say, I am praying for you (John 17:20).
