Intro – I think everyone finds it a comfort to know someone is praying for you. Parents, children, church members, etc.  It must have been a comfort for the disciples to know that Jesus was praying for them. The bible tells us in Rom.8:34 that Jesus is praying for us. Interceding on our behalf.  Heb.9:24, Heb.7:25, 1Jn.2:1
