Heavenly Father, I looked up the word, ‘advocate’ in my Vines Dictionary, and guess where it took me…well, you already know…it took me to ‘comforter.’ “Parakletos: called to one’s side, i.e., to one’s aid.” It brought me to the Holy Spirit, whom you sent as comforter and guide, educator and advocate. It brought me to Jesus, who sits at your right hand pleading my case. Lord, thank you for your example. Thank you for those who come along side to advise, comfort and counsel. Thank you for those who stand in the gap for the least of these. Thank you for those who pray and give generously. Thank you for prayer teams and advocacy teams. Thank you for those who plead the case of the needy and helpless. Thank you for those who go out of their way to snatch others out of the fire for the sake of your name. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.” (Romans 8:34 ESV)
