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. – Romans 8:26 (MSG)
Have you ever been really tired? I remember one time after a missions trip, I stayed awake for almost 30 hours because I wanted to spend every last minute with my friends from the trip. When I got home, I was exhausted.
When you get really tired, it’s hard to accomplish much. And prayer is no different. It’s easy to get tired of waiting for the answer that you prayed for. Or maybe you get tired just praying for much more than three minutes at a time.
The good news is that even if prayer seems hard, tiring or boring, you don’t have to be tired and do it alone. You have the Holy Spirit to help us pray. The Holy Spirit will help you pray for things you don’t know how to pray for. He’ll bring things to your memory so that you pray for them. You aren’t doing it alone. The holy spirit is there to help you, lead you and guide you.
It’s so awesome knowing we can depend on the Holy Spirit! He’s there to help us, encourage us when we’re tired or weak and even help us when we don’t know what or how to pray. We don’t have to do it on our own! The Holy Spirit is there to help.
Take some time today to thank God for giving us the Holy Spirit. He helps us in our time need!
