Sunday reflection: Sighs too deep for words

Reflection based on Romans 8:26-27


O Spirit,
you help us in our weakness.
Maybe it's not so much 
that we don't know how to pray as we ought,
but that we are unable to find words 
to express the inexpressible:
fear,
sorrow,
struggle,
confusion,
or a feeling of hopelessness --
alternately,
joy,
peace,
excitement,
contentment,
or a strong sense of hope.
It's just good to know
that when we stand, tongue-tied,
in the chaos of our lives,
you intercede for us
with sighs too deep for words.
Really, that's all we need --
and to trust 
that you've got our backs.

+AMEN.
