Often it is hard to pray. It is that I am blocked by sin or I am just worn out. Today, it was so busy that I did not take my power nap, did not do my bible reading, and was glued to the screen…Yes, a perfect storm to be far away from God. So as I came to pray at church, it was hard until the last moment of the intercessory prayer.
However, as I literally beat myself, I was reminded of Romans 8:26.
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 through wordless groans.
Yes, it is not us. The Holy Spirit will lead the way and make things happen. Thank You Jesus because we are such sinners and we are so broke. But we thank You again for Your love and giving us the Holy Spirit to rise up again. Father, we love You and thank You. We will praise You always.
