40 Ways to Pray – When you don’t know

Day 25 – How to pray when you don’t know what to pray for

There are times in my life when I am at a loss of words.  I get side tracked, lose focus or just not sure where to take a conversation.

I’m talking about loss of words in my prayers to God.  Sometimes I get to the place where I don’t know what to pray for.  And there are some times when I just don’t have words to say to Him.

In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings.     Romans 8:26

I don’t know what to say sometimes because I am weak.  I am weak in my relationship with Jesus.

So what do I need to do during those times?  Ask the Holy Spirit to pray for me.  Ask the Holy Spirit to guide me into a conversation.  Ask the Holy Spirit to give me the words I need at that moment in time.

My Prayer for Today

Lord thank you for how You help me talk to You when I do not even know how to.  Thank you that you know the words I need – when I need them.  In the name of Jesus I pray.
