“Dear Lord, I hate to ad­mit this, but I’ve fallen asleep in prayer sev­eral times in the past week. It ac­tu­ally hap­pens more of­ten than not. Whether I pray in the morn­ing or the evening, I find my­self feel­ing warm and some­how over­whelmed, and I nod off into a strange nap. I’m so sorry! How can I keep from do­ing this again?”

—Paul in a let­ter to the Ro­mans, 8:26 NASB

Wis­dom of the Word

We do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Him­self in­ter­cedes for us with groan­ings too deep for words.

We un­der­stand and yet…

We of­ten end up feel­ing sleepy af­ter send­ing our hearts out to You in prayer. We feel so bad about this that we start avoid­ing pray­ing. How can we do bet­ter?
