I’m Struggling To Pray


Ever find yourself so out of breath and miserable you can hardly pray. I’m struggling once again to even utter a sentence pray for myself or situation. The misery has gone on so long that I’m losing hope. The agony is so great that I’m consumed with nothing but pain anytime I’m awake. Pain at the level I’m talking about is completely exhausting and intoxicating.

My prayers for myself are back to whispers at best. Therefore, I have to ask others to pray for me. My fight is gone and with it goes your confidence to see beyond the pain. I know God can do anything as well as anyone. However. I’m so wore down I can’t think or see straight. 

The disruption within my body and spirit is choking my prayers. Thank God the Holy Spirit lives within me or I would be very concerned. I know I’m not holding myself together. I know God has intervened and is intervening on my behalf. Thank God the Holy Spirit is praying for me when my prayers are speechless!

“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.”

(Romans 8:26)
