Light for My Path Daily Devotion

Bible Reading

 In the same way the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we should pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that are not expressed in words. (Romans 8:26 EHV)

Hymn  ELH 387:1,5,6  Prayer Is The Soul’s Sincere Desire

Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire,
Unuttered or expressed;
The motion of a hidden fire
That trembles in the breast.

Prayer is the contrite sinner’s voice
Returning from his ways
While angels in their songs rejoice,
And cry, “Behold, he prays!”

O Thou, by whom we come to God,
The Life, the Truth, the Way!
The path of prayer Thyself hast trod;
Lord, teach us how to pray.


Heavenly Father, help me to trust in You for all things, knowing that You hear and answer all my prayers. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
