Ever gone to make a call and found your cell battery has died?

 

It’s happened to me several times.
Murphy’s Law dictates that I never have a charger cord with me when I absolutely need it most.

That never happens to us as believers.
The Holy Spirit is always there, the paraclete, the Comforter Jesus promised.

One of the greatest ministries He performs for us is His intercession in prayer.

I loved how Lysa TerKeurst translated that idea in this post on Instagram.

It takes a little effort for me to quiet myself enough to let Him speak.

I have to resist the urge to fill the silence with my ideas, desires, needs, complaints. . .and simply wait until I feel His presence and His love surround me.

He intercedes for us.

 

Today I saw this as a renewed invitation to lay down my burdens, even the burden of prayer, and let Him fill the place of prayer with His intercession.
Dependence should characterize every aspect of a walk with God.
Figuring out what to ask for, or how to ask it—today I’m resting in His requests for me.

  1. Thank you for sharing this Kelly. Wow, I never thought of it this way. There are the verses such as Hebrews 7:25, but this really hits home. Thank you! 🙂
