God understands

Isn't it incredible! Even in those times when my words are blocked and my heart is heavy, God hears my prayers. It is not because I speak well, wise, or faithful enough to pray as I should. No, it is because God has graciously placed his Spirit in our hearts to make known what my words cannot capture and my mind cannot say. God hears my groanings, my yearnings, my heartbreaks, and my heart-cries. He knows what I cannot think, but only feel. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, He answers those unuttered prayers with His presence, grace, and power.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
— Romans 8:26

Dear Lord I am comforted by knowing that even if I don't know what to say, you know what I mean to say. I trust you to answer my longings as you see fit, for I know that you know what I need far more than I know how to ask for it. In Jesus' name, Amen.
