“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness….we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.” — Romans 8:26, NLT

We sometimes settle into prayer

so weary and worldly-weighted

that our words puddle into a mush

of syllables, and we fall mute,

unable to sift our own thoughts.

We reach a point of sinking despair,

and then the Spirit intercedes 

with wordless groans….

…Oh, God, most merciful,

pray for us.
