Mind Christ Much In Your Prayers

Robert Traill (The Throne of Grace), Works 1:110:

Luxembourgers in England- Evacuees in Surrey, 1942 D11110Whenever you are upon your knees at the footstool, remember who is at the throne above, and what his business is there. Footstool supplications of believers would be all quite lost, if it were not for the Saviour’s intercession at the throne, Heb. 8:1. Our High Priest is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens. And he ever liveth to make intercession for us, Heb. 7:25. This is the end of his living in heaven, to make intercession for us. Take heed, and mind Christ much in your prayers; and never fear his forgetting you. Shall Christ live for ever to make intercession for you? and will you live all your days without making use of him as an intercessor? Alas! that Christ in heaven gets so little employment from believers on earth! He seeks your employment, he loves it, and loves them best that give him most of it. He undertakes for every thing put in his hand, and in due time will give you a good account of all you intrust him with, and make you say, He hath done all things well (Mark 7:37).
