Praying with Jesus
I mentioned two blogs ago that I have been working on memorizing Romans chapter 8 the past few weeks. It is amazing how these verses keep running through my head. Another verse from there that helps us to understand prayer is this one.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with wordless groans. (Romans 8:26)
I am sure you have been tongue-tied at one time and not know what to say when praying.
Never feel that you have to fill your prayers with many words or fancy phrases. When your soul can’t put life into words the Spirit Jesus sends speaks in a way that we cannot explain. Some of our best prayers are filled with silence because our Lord understands everything more than we know.
Lord Jesus, thank you that my words are not what you read but my heart. Thank you for always meeting me where I am in life and lifting me up. Amen.
