I Know What You Meant

I’d had trouble with my phones and when that was corrected, I sent a message to the family telling them (I thought!) “The phones are fine now.”  Instead I sent, “Phones seem mine now!”

I quickly sent a correction and my daughter wrote back, “What? I read what you were saying!” Isn’t that a wonderful thing? She understood me in spite of the words I used!

God too, understands us when we don’t know what to pray or how to pray it, because the Holy Spirit translates for us.

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.  (Romans 8:26-28, MSG)

Prayer – Thank you Lord, for your Holy Spirit, who prays our weakness into your strength. Amen
