For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near...that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16
I was encouraged by the above verse. Upon bowing our knee, the first thing we see on our way to the Father is the sympathetic smile of Christ who knows our trouble and is ready to help.
