Someone Help Me Pray – the Spirit

Someone help me pray when I don’t know how to pray.  I need words, but I only have a few feelings.  What do I say, what do I pray.  Sometimes the best and most honest prayer is to put ourselves before God just as we are, just the way we feel. And then just count on the hidden Spirit of God to come to the rescue.  Let the Spirit figure out what to pray. He knows.  When words appear cold and feeble we need to just count on the hidden and quiet Spirit of God working in our human spirit.  He has words, He has accurate words.

Now that I have said all this, look at these two passages in the Bible.

Zechariah 12:10 “ And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for [his] only [son,] and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. He, that is the Spirit of God gives us a Spirit of grace and supplication, that is gives us “prayer”.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
