I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not. — Luke 22:32

It ought to give us a new sense of strength to know that Jesus is watching and interceding for us. He had His eye on His disciples that night, and when they were about to pass through sore temptation, He made intercession for the one who was most in danger. Satan asked that he might have all the disciples, but the Master’s prayer was for one of them. “Satan asked to have you, that he might sift you as wheat; but I made supplication for thee, Simon.”

Weakness makes Christ’s solitude for us more tender, more loving. The harder it is for us to live, the more earnestly does Christ pray for us, and the more powerfully does He help us.

It will do us good always to remember that this little story of Christ’s intercession for one of His disciples is a sample of what is going on all the while. He watches form heaven, and when one of us is in danger, lifts up His hands before God and pleads for us.
