Groaning too deep for words

Do you ever have a hard time praying?

I certainly do, all the time! One of my favorite verses about it that reminds me of the true nature of prayer is Romans 8:26. Here’s what is says:

“The Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself INTERCEDES for us with groanings too deep for words.” Romans 8:26

Isn’t that incredible? The Spirit of God Himself works within the hearts of believers to communicate with the Father. This communication, this groaning is on a level that is even deeper than even our prettiest words and prettiest prayers.

The next time that you find yourself desperate for praying “the right or pretty way,” let it go and let God take over. He doesn’t require prayers that sound like poetry or even make complete sense. But God listens to you always, even to the groaning that lives in your heart that is too deep for even words.
