My feet are tired from the runnin’
My strength is gone for overcomin’
My lips are silent, I don’t know what to pray
So I’ll wait, I’ll wait for You
In this life we face struggles that can drain us. It can get to the point that we do not know what to pray. I have had moments in prayer that all I could was mutter-ugh- and say I need your help Lord.
Waiting on the Lord, spending time in his presence, can renew our strength as Isaiah 40:31 says:
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Whatever our struggle in life is, we can know:
1- God loves us and nothing can separate from his love.
2- God knows what we need.
3. Jesus has overcome the world.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Thank you for the reminders. Sometimes we just don’t know how to pray. Thanks for this good word on Monday morning, Matt.
God doesn’t need us to know how to pray. He invites us to come to him and he takes care of the rest
Face to Face….ahh what a glorious day it will be when we see Jesus face-to-face 🙌
Those three truths are just what I needed going into this morning. And a beautiful song, too!
I love the song
I saw her in concert years ago…. she’s such an inspiring artist. 🙏👍
I would love to go to one of her concerts
Prayer can be as simple as saying, “Jesus help me” it can be as pure as reciting God’s Word and promises. When we are overwhelmed, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. It is wonderful that we have an open communication line with Our Father! Good post, Matt!
Thank you little sister 🙂
Reading your post I’m reminded of Romans 8:26-27 ‘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 through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
I love that passage 🙂
Thank you for this song. Its soul lifting for me.
I am glad to share it
Amen. I do relate to your words. Many times in the.midst of trouble all I can do is groan. I am so glad that in these times the Spirit makes intercession for us and God understands and hears our groaning. Thank you for sharing. I love the song.
I am thankful the Holy Spirit helps us
Yes, He does.🙏
What a beautiful song. Thank you. Here I am, Lord. Help!
He is with you
