Thought of the Day !!

The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. – Romans 8:26 (NIV)

Are there times in your life when you just don't know what to ask God for or how to go about asking?  Have you ever wanted to pray for somebody, but you didn't know their specific need?  Have you ever been in a funk and didn't understand why and had no clue how to put it into words before God?

I know I have experienced all of these and figure you have too.  Jesus tells us to take our burdens to him, but there have been times when I really didn't know how to explain what these burdens were.  That can make it hard when trying to share our problems with others.  But God already knows.  He already knows what we're going through, what others are going through, what pains and hurts we are all feeling, what burdens we bear.

Begin by simply going to God in prayer.  You may or may not be able to say what you desire.  But God's Holy Spirit reaches down into the depths of your heart to get what the heart knows but the brain can't put into words.  Pray that God would recognize the things you can't explain.  The Bible says that He's capable of just that. 

In the love of Christ,
