Dwelling on the Word of God: Struggling in Prayer (Wednesday 30th October 2013)

Posted on October 30, 2013 at 8:41 AM
From today's reading (Romans 8:26-30):
'The Spirit comes to help us in our weakness.  For when we cannot choose words in order to pray properly, the Spirit himself expresses our plea in a way that could never be put into words...'
What great comfort we can take from this! 
St Paul tells us that, even when we struggle to pull together the right words in prayer, the Holy Spirit knows what we mean and will transform it into a language that God will understand.
The next time you pray and struggle to put your prayers or petitions into words, remember that the Holy Spirit is there to help you.  The Spirit knows your heart and God, through the Spirit, will understand each and every single intention.
