Guiding Light

Devotional




Have you ever had that awkward moment when you tried to say something but couldn’t quite get the words out? Whether it was completely missing the punchline to a good joke, or totally blanking during a speech in front of your whole class, it doesn’t feel great. While those examples aren’t that big of a deal in the long run, maybe you’ve felt this in other areas of your life - like prayer. Sometimes we just can't get the words out.


In fact, a follower of Jesus named Paul shares in the book of Romans that when we don’t know how to pray, the Holy Spirit knows exactly what we need and prays for us! You can rest knowing that when you say yes to believing and following Jesus, He freely gives you the Holy Spirit who will show you how to talk to God. So, when it comes to prayer and you just don't know where to start, know the Holy Spirit is already praying on your behalf. Even if your words are few, remember that God knows exactly what you need.


How can you remind yourself the Holy Spirit is there to guide you in prayer?
