Encouragement in Prayer & Breakfast Biscuits

Romans 8:26-27 (icb)

Also, the Spirit helps us. We are very weak, but the Spirit helps us with our weakness. We do not know how to pray as we should. But the Spirit himself speaks to God for us, even begs God for us. The spirit speaks to God with deep feelings that words cannot explain. God can see what is in people’s hearts. And he knows what is in the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit speaks to God for his people in the way that God wants.

Read

In yesterday’s devotional, I talked about prayer and how I often struggle to find the words to say, or any words at all for that matter. I’ll be honest, it’s a topic that’s discouraging for me. Even after reading the scripture from yesterday and writing the devotional, I felt discouraged.

But today, I want to share scripture that encourages me regarding prayer. The focus of our devo for today is Romans 8:26-27, and it’s a “turn-that-frown-upside-down” kinda truth. Even when we don’t know what to pray for, when we can’t connect our hearts and our heads, or when we can’t seem to organize our thoughts enough to put two words together, we’re still praying. That’s the powerful work of the Spirit.

God knows what’s on our hearts and in our heads, and He’s more than capable of making sense of what’s often a conjumbled mess. The more I study the Bible, the more I see a few common themes – and one of them is grace.

Take a second to really think about this:

We serve a God that’s completely and totally accessible through prayer
He wants an open, honest, ongoing relationship with us
He forgives us when our prayers are self-centered
He understands us when our prayers are confusing
He listens to us when we want to talk and He sits with us when we don’t
When we can’t find the words to say, He literally reads them from our hearts and speaks them for us

That’s grace. And love. God loves us enough and has such a strong desire to simply connect with us that He provides us with an endless amount of opportunities to succeed in prayer.

If you’ve ever felt, or often feel, discouraged in your prayer life, you can take heart in knowing that God takes even your “worst attempts” at prayer and turns them into something beautiful. That’s kind of His thing; making our messes into something good.

Write

Everything that has the power to defeat you has been covered by God’s loving grace. As you let that thought sink in, write a letter to Him, thanking Him and worshipping Him for providing a promise or a solution to satisfy all your needs.

Pray

A prayer of thanksgiving for the Spirit’s work in every aspect of your life.

Tips & Tools

I was actually unprepared to make this recipe and didn’t remember to buy the breakfast sausage, but luckily, I had some chicken sausage links in the freezer from a past recipe. I allowed them to thaw and used a knife to remove the casing, then added them to the skillet and broke them up with a spatula. If you would prefer to use sausage links, this is an easy way to turn them into crumbled sausage. Or, you can simply cook the links and then dice them up into small pieces. The nutrition information above was calculated using 3 Trader Joes Breakfast Chicken Sausage Links (totaling 110 calories for reference).
