Reflection: The help of the Holy Spirit
If you’re anything like me, prayer can sometimes seem like a unscalable mountain! In a world with so much need and brokenness, trying to work out where to start, who and what to pray for, can seem an impossible task.
One of great promises and advantages we have with the Holy Spirit is that he helps us to pray! He will help highlight the people and needs that require our prayers. He wants to work in partnership with us, to co-labour together. Even when we feel like our words are failing us and we don’t know what to say, simply the cries and sounds that come from our soul carry enormous weight.
The last thing God is looking for is perfect prayers. Our Father knows our needs even before we ask him. He just likes to hear our voice.
Question: How can you invite the Holy Spirit into your prayer time?
Prayer: Lord, I recognise that in my weakness and humanity, I often don’t know how best to pray. I ask that you would lead and guide me as I pray. Amen.
