Does the Bible teach that the Son helps us to pray? It actually teaches that the Holy Spirit does so: "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered" (Rom. 8:26, KJV). It is Christ's role to serve as a "high priest," "making intercession" for believers (Rom. 8:27; Heb. 7:25).
