As I Sat
I’ll be honest, for years I struggled during difficult times with what to say when I prayed.
I finally found exactly what I needed. If I’m going through something hard, I can pray prayers where I don’t speak at all.
I can just sit with Jesus making no suggestions, offering no solutions. Sometimes, I have nothing but quiet tears and a heavy heart. The beautiful thing is the Bible promises when we sit with Jesus like this, the Holy Spirit lifts up the exact right prayers for me. And eventually, I sense God there and there is peace.
What are you going through today? Whether it’s a difficult issue with one of your kids or financial stress or just feeling overwhelmed by life, I encourage you to sit with Jesus without feeling the need to offer up any words at all. Just sit.
