The Holy Spirit prays for us!

“Likewise the Spirit also helps our weakness for we know not what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit makes intercession for us with sighs too deep for words. And God who searches the heart knows the mind of the Spirit, who makes intercession for the people of God according to God’s will,” Romans 8:26-27 Holy Partner in Prayer by Mary Harwell Sayler When our hopes recede and faith weakens, and we do not even know how to pray as we ought, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. And God, Who searches our hearts and minds, finds the very prayers heard to align with God’s Own will when the Holy Spirit prays for us – right then – and is praying still. © 2013, Mary Sayler , all rights reserved, prayer-a-phrase poem of Romans 8:26-27 ~~

New Year begins with God’s Blessing

The Daily Bible Reading starts the New Year with the prayer the Lord gave (and still gives!) leaders to pray over the people of God, blessing them and us with God’s shine. The LORD spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the leaders and say, Let this be the way you bless My people, saying: May the LORD bless you and keep you. May the LORD cause His face on you to shine. May the LORD be gracious to you, and lift you into the image of God and give you peace. Shalom. In this way, the leaders may bless the people of God with the Name of God, and on each of them the LORD’s own “God bless” will rest. Shalom. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrased poem from Numbers 6:22-27 ~~
