My groaning // 09-06-23

“O Lord, hear me as I pray; pay attention to my groaning. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for I pray to no one but you. Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.” Psalms‬ ‭5‬:‭1‬-‭3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I love that even my groaning can be prayer! This isn’t moaning, but a deep sound often without words that expresses pain, grief or annoyance! Sometimes we just can’t articulate the words for what we are feeling but groaning can! In Romans 8 it says that sometimes we don’t know what God wants us to pray for, but the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words! Thank you Lord that You are right there listening to my cry for help, whether in words or in groans, and I can wait expectantly knowing that You are my King, and that help is on the way. Amen 👆🏼🙏🏼
