In John 14:16, 18 notice what Jesus said, “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another [allos] helper, to be with you forever / I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you.” At Matthew 28:20 Jesus said, “Lo, I am with you always, to the close of the ages.” It is through the coming of this promised helper, the holy spirit, that Jesus comes to them and remains with them (although he is physically absent), hence the use of allos. As said before, the holy spirit is reflective of Personality, in this case, that of Jesus Christ.

Should we pray to Jesus? John Cortright establishes that Jesus, though not physically present, can hear us and communicate as well through the spirit. We can offer thanksgiving to Jesus though prayer is to be directed to God the Father in the name of Jesus Christ.
