Praying with Jesus
One of the blessings of God coming into this world in the person of his Son Jesus is the fact that He prays with us even as we can pray and ask things of Him. We know He understands us and we can relate to him in all of our struggles and issues. I love this passage from Hebrews.
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin. (Hebrews 4:15)
Jesus is able to sympathize with us in untold ways. He understands. He has walked with us not only a mile in our situations of life but a lifetime facing struggles, sorrow, and even death. He walks with us each and every day as he promised to always be there.
Jesus, thank you for understanding. You know my struggles. Even as I ask for your help you are also praying for me. Help me grow in my understanding of your goodness and help in every situation. I thank you for being able to sympathize with me. Amen.
