Make a Good Prayer Out of It


“Prayer is blending of our words into the language of Heaven.” – SC


The little boy was sent to the corner and told to stand there until he could learn to be nicer to his little sister. Moments later, his mother passed by and heard him whispering, “A-B-C-D-E-F…” “Son, what are you doing?” she asked. “Mom, you told me that I should pray, but I just don’t know what to say. So, I decided to give God the whole alphabet and ask Him to make a good prayer out of it.”


Have you ever felt totally incapable of communicating or even processing what you want to say to God?


Romans 8:26-27 (NIV) “We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”

God knows before you think it. He hears before you say it. Be still. Let the Holy Spirit search your heart and take confidence in His ability to “make a good prayer out of it.”
