Christ intervenes when we pray

Amintas, a Greek soldier, was on trial for treason. His brother Aeschylus, who had lost an arm in the service of his country, went to court, held up the stump of his arm and cried, “Amintas is guilty, but for Aeschylus’ sake he shall go free.”

When we pray, it is the presence of our intercessor before the throne, bearing in His body the evidence of His suffering and victory that speaks for us.*
