Praying with Paul: 'Waiting for Redemption'

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

Romans 8:26-27

Dear Father, who knows my secrets,

Help me to wait patiently for my redemption. Thank you for giving me your Holy Spirit to make up for the inadequacies of my body and spirit. I know not how to pray as I should, so I praise you for your Spirit, who takes my inexpressible groanings and lifts them to the Lord Jesus, thus sharing in his intercession for me.

I thank you that the Holy Spirit searches out the remotest cranny of my heart, knows me in a way that I cannot even know myself, and expresses to you what I wish that I could say but cannot. How wonderful! How loving!

Thank you, Lord, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Hallelujah. Amen. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you again!

In the name of Jesus and with the support of your Spirit I come to you, with gratitude for doing these things. Amen.
