Prayer for those who sigh

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.” — Romans 8:26

You know them, Lord.

She heard from the oncologist.

His wife left.

Their child is being bullied.

She’s hearing voices again.

He can’t get a fair trial.

Their dog crossed over the rainbow bridge.

He’s got more month than money.

She just peed on a stick.

They haven’t left the house in twenty months.

He’s afraid to come out of the closet.

She’s off the wagon – big time.

Wrap us in your Spirit, O Lord, and pray for us with sighs too deep for words.
