Prayer based on Hebrews 4:14-16 (In Sonnet form)

O God, you gave us Jesus who passed through
The great high priest passed through to heaven’s heights
We pray we might confess in prayer to you
And to the Son of Man, who is our light
We know that he is one who understands
And sympathizes with us through it all
You know our weakness, and you have a plan
Through him who suffered testing without fall
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace*
If we can find the strength to be so bold
We long to dwell within a loving space
And feel your help and mercy in our souls
Help us hold fast, confess, and sympathize
As mercy, grace, and help are realized
