Have you ever felt overwhelmed with all that’s happening around the world and wanted to pray but didn’t know what to pray? I have felt that way this week. Every day, there seems to be so much hurt and pain.
But the good news is even when we don’t have the words to say, Romans 8:26 tells us that the Holy Spirit intercedes for us with “groanings too deep for words.”
This means that even when we can’t articulate our prayers, the Holy Spirit is communicating our deepest needs to God on our behalf.
So, what should we do when we don’t have the words to pray? Here are a few tips:
- Simply tell God that you don’t know what to say. It’s okay to be honest with God about your struggles. He already knows, anyway.
- Pray Scripture. Sometimes, the best way to pray is to simply read Scripture back to God. This can be a great way to express our hearts to God, even when we don’t have our own words.
I’m thankful we can always come to God with our deepest needs and concerns.
Many times, I pray Come Jesus, Come…..
Do you ever feel overwhelmed with what’s going on in our world? Or maybe there’s turmoil in your family; perhaps you’re dealing with brokenness. Whatever you are dealing with, take it to Jesus. He is always listening.
