"If you think of the Father as something 'out there', in front of you, and of the Son as someone standing at your side, helping you to pray"

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).
