Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need (Hebrews 4:14-16).
Jesus, our great high priest, understands. He totally gets it. In fact, He empathizes with our weaknesses, our very humanity. Tempted just as we are, He conquered the power of sin and death. We can pray with confidence, fully expecting to receive mercy and grace, because of Him.
What would it look and sound like for you to pray with confidence? Today might be a good day to try something new — a different posture, a different place, a different time of day — for your prayer.
