the F..bomb

Wednesday May 27th, Romans 8: 26 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.  One of the deepest, most honest prayers I witnessed was when a friend of mine lost his mother suddenly and let out long and loud the F..bomb, with fists clinched and face turned heavenward.  I do not promote swearing as a part of prayer, but sometimes, in the intensity of the moment, words just seem unimportant.  God knows, God understands, God hears and God loves. Don’t worry about what to say in prayer, just say it from the heart, like on Pentecost, God will hear it in God’s own language.  With most of our prayers, we just get the surface stuff, deep down honesty, no matter the words used, are always the better prayer… they help change us.  Isn’t that what prayer is all about anyway, changing us? Use honest prayer today and see if your heart is not brought closer to God…. And God is not the one moving.
