Romans 8:26

26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

It is difficult to make sense of our world right now. I have so many questions about what is going to happen, but it seems nobody knows. When will all of this end? Will it come back? When will we be back to normal? Are things changed forever? I have been staying at home, and I am getting a little squirrely. If only I knew the timeline, I think I could cope better.

I’m not quite sure what I should be praying for in the world. I am praying that people are healthy, but I feel like I come up short in my prayers. I love the scripture for today, because it is a reminder for me of the Spirit working in my life. I know that if I spend time in silent prayer the Spirit will lead my heart to pray the right things, even if the words don’t come out. The Spirit will connect us with God, even if we don’t understand what we are doing. The Spirit is with us, even in a world of uncertainty. Amen.
