"He not only died for us—he rose from the dead, and there at God's right hand he stands and pleads for us." "He is living for ever to intercede for all who come to God through him."—Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25, Catholic Jerusalem Bible.

Jesus taught his followers to pray to “our Father in the heavens.” (Matthew 6:9)

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

Hebrews 6:20 20 "where a forerunner has entered in our behalf, Jesus, who has become a high priest according to the manner of Mel·chiz´e·dek forever."

(1 Timothy 2:3-6) . . . "God our Saviour, Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus:"

This Catholic website calls Jesus the mediator between God and men. I have a feeling that you don't really need this information. http://www.newadvent...then/10118a.htm

A mediator is one who brings estranged parties to an amicable agreement. In New Testament theology the term invariably implies that the estranged beings are God and man, and it is appropriated to Christ, the One Mediator. ... Moses, howover, is the proper mediator of the Old Testament (Galatians 3:19-20).



If you really have this many questions, you might consider first looking up the words in a Bible concordance, and you may benefit from doing searches. A friend of mine regularly posts things from these sources:
http://www.equip.org
http://journal.equip.org
http://www.equipresources.org
http://www.equip.org/heartofchristmas
http://www.decipherthecode.com

Or maybe you could speak to someone personally with a one on one Bible study. I know when I first started posting here I was on fire and posted a lot, it seems you are in that same place. Speaking to others on this forum has been very helpful. I hope your search proves as fruitful as mine.

The Son and the Father are one.

I always pray to the Father in the name of the Son because it reminds that because of Jesus I can find grace in God.
Jesus makes me acceptable to God.
