Hey guys, I apologize for not posting yesterday. I had a bit of a rough day which is no excuse but could I please ask for prayers. I’m struggling quite a bit right now and have no desire or motivation to continue the prayer challenge. I cannot let the enemy win. So I please ask that you may all pray that I can overcome and finish strong with this challenge. Thank You!
(Find Day #22 here.)
Scripture Reading: “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26
Your child is struggling right now and is at loss for words. As you well know, I have such a hard time with prayer. So often I feel hopeless and like a failure in so many areas of my life. And prayer just seems to be one of them. Yet today you give me hope once again. You promise to help in my weakness. Well Lord, I’m feeling pretty weak right now. So I ask earnestly, “Holy Spirit speak the words I do not know to speak. For I truly do not know what I should pray for. Make intercession for me and take my hurts to the Father. Left me up out of this darkness and keep me from dwelling here. Open my eyes Lord to all the beauty and blessings around me. Remove this hold that bitterness and pessimism has on me. Renew my spirit and my mind.”
Sincerely and with a broken spirit,
The Lord always knows how to encourage us. Whenever we struggle or hurt, and we feel so helpless, He places the right words before us. He knew exactly what to say to me today. He promises He will carry me in my weakness. He sent His son to die for us, so His love for us is the truest of loves. And because of this the Holy Spirit now knows our inner most hurts and intercedes for us to the Father. We are no longer in need of any other middle man. For no other middleman could even understand the sorrows we cannot speak. The Holy Spirit does and He speaks when we cannot. Praise God for this!
“Holy Spirit, today I ask that you take my heart to the Lord, I don’t really know how to put words to the way I am feeling. Carry me through and help me overcome. The enemy has no power against you. In Jesus’ name. Amen”
