What is a Weary Prayer?

by Tanya


 Have you ever made one of those prayers when you were so weary from the praying and seeming to not be getting any answers?

You know the ones in which you just lay there and just sigh because you don’t know what else to say.

I’ve had those types of prayers.

And when I have those prayers I am assured by this promise in God’s Word.

“In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words” (Romans 8:26, NASB).

Be assured today, that even when you feel
like you can’t pray anymore, God’s Spirit is praying for you.
