R.C. Sproul writes:
“One of the chief emphases of the New Testament in terms of His present work for His people is His intercession. Christ’s priestly work did not end on the cross. Every day, in the presence of the Father, Christ intercedes for His people. If, as James says, the fervent prayer of a righteous person ‘has great power as it is working’ (James 5:16), how much more do Jesus’ prayers avail for His people?”
