The young soldier said, "I never took advantage of the offer, but you do know what a comfort it was to me. Often after a weary march, I would throw myself on the ground and say, 'If it become beyond human endurance, I can write to Bob Lincoln and get relief, and I would rather have his intercession than that of the cabinet, because he is a son.'"
Every true Christian knows that he has the best friend possible at the court of Heaven in the Son of God, who "ever liveth to make intercession for us."
