Summary: What a friend we have in Jesus! That sums it up!
Jesus hears the words you say, whether you scream them out or you whisper them!
He hears us whether, we speak words of joy and excitement, or speak thru words of brokenness and pain!
Mark 10:46-47 (quickview) -Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”

who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,
but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.
You can never say that no one understands what you are going thru, because Jesus did and Jesus does understand!
3-Friends Always Look Out For One Another
There is nothing that is going to happen in your life that does not pass thru His marvelous hands!
Jesus has your best interest in mind! He is going to do what is best for you! (Even if it kills you!)
4-Friends Always Tells Us The Truth
Hebrews 4:12 (quickview) -For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
I don’t believe you can read God’s word. Or hear God’s word without it pointing out something within your life you need to change!
God’s word tells us the truth about ourselves! (We can we are good people, nice people, but when read God’s word, we see how much we need Jesus!)
5-Friends Accept Us For Who We Are
