Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
– Matthew 5:4
Do you know what Jesus was really talking about when He said those words? He was talking about the mourning of the intercessor. He was teaching about the comfort that comes to the intercessor when he is assured by the Holy Spirit that he has prayed through.
To pray through means "to break through the barriers that have stopped the work of God in the lives of others." It means using your spiritual armor to push back the forces of darkness that surround them.
"Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak" (Matt. 26:41 KJV).
Now, I want to show you Jesus in a situation whereby He was faced with seemingly a tough situation, so tough that it removed the rest from Him. And Jesus then labored to get back in it. He shows us how to do it. We can follow His example.
Jesus, even though He was the Son of God, operated in this earth as the son of man, and He had a body like your body, that feels pain. And Jesus' body was no different than your body.

"And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray" (Luke 11:1).
Someone said, "It is more important that men learn to pray than that they gain a college education." Notice he did not say that having an education is not important; he said, that learning to pray is more important.
