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.
