Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV
Jesus Christ, our great High Priest, has the capacity to identify with us in our weakness because He faced the same temptations. He put Himself in our shoes and bore our pain. This is an identification that is willing to take the blow, to feel the pain, to fight the fight, not only with someone but for someone. As we learn to yield ourselves to the spirit of God in intercession, there is a place where we can actually sense the Spirit bringing us into identification with the object of our prayers. In today’s study we are learning to pray through these places until we either get a note of victory in our spirit, or the unction lifts for a season. We are learning what it means to “bear one another’s burdens” in the area of divine healing.
