Jesus prayed for Himself too

Here on earth, Jesus prayed to God for help. The Only Son prayed with a shout and tears to the Only One Who could save Him from fears of death, and God heard this prayer of trust. Even Jesus, the Son of God knew obedience through misery. And because He obeyed – completely, perfectly – Jesus became our High Priest like Melchizedek, and in this way Christ gave eternal salvation to all who obey. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase poem, Hebrews 5:7-10

Approaching God in prayer

We have a great high priest! Jesus the Son of God, Who ascended for us into Heaven. So let’s believe what we say we believe, knowing our High Priest feels for us, even in our weakest moments, because He was tempted too – just like you and me – but He did not sin. Believe it! Then we can approach God’s good graces with bold confidence in Christ and reliably receive the goodness and mercy we need. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase, Hebrews 4:14-16
