My friend David has been writing some wonderful stuff lately. He may be a Boomer in the Pew, but he captures a deep truth about the helplessness of prayer.
Many recognize that there are times of great stress and strain when speech fails us as we seek God’s counsel. Our vocabulary is impotent to frame the words to express our love, faith, doubts, pain, and joy.
In like manner, when the sky is blue and the clouds are wispy white, one does not barge into the presence of the Eternal King. Appearing before the throne of Grace is a privilege purchased by the shed blood of our Savior Jesus Christ. It should leave you speechless on occasions.
There are times when words completely fail me in my attempts to communicate with my heavenly Father.
These may be times of great affection and praise, as God’s Holy Spirit stirs within me, or times where I am feeling completely lost, and long for my Father’s loving presence.
When these deep feelings arise, God instructs us to allow the Holy Spirit to speak on our behalf.
Romans 8:26, “…but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.“
Thanks David. This post refreshes my spirit.
