The Bible says that, when we don’t know what to say in our prayers, God’s Holy Spirit does the praying for us, “with groanings too deep for words.”
Many things in this life are a mystery. I’m going through one of those right now – or rather, I’m watching some friends go through one. The details would break your heart.
Having been a Christian for over 30 years, I’m sure I could put together some kind of a prayer that would sound good, be theologically correct, and even be sincere. But the truth is that I don’t know what to say… not to them, and not to God.
So I’ll groan. And the Holy Spirit will do the same. And somewhere in there will be a prayer that reaches the throne of God.
