Tongue tied

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. (Romans 8:26-27 NIV)

I heard the story of a famous man who met the queen of England. He was so nervous he forgot his own name.

No wonder we sometimes get a little tongue-tied when we talk to God. At least I do. Probably one of my most frequent prayers is this: “I don’t know what to say.”

And I don’t. Maybe that problem doesn’t plague you, but I am clueless much of the time when it comes to prayer. Other times, I’m too slick for my own good. I pray the formula, and then I can’t even remember what I said.

Anyway, I’m glad the Holy Spirit prays for me. I need it. He knows it. He prays, and, wow, I end up with an amazing life that I wouldn’t trade for anything surrounded by beautiful people. Like you.

Thank You, God, for Your kindness to me.
