From online retreat I’m doing
So often, I feel like I am praying in the dark. So often, I feel like I am praying for the wrong thing, and though I may pray for thy will, I don’t know that I always truly intend thy will to be done. It is comforting to know that the Spirit is here to make sure it’s prayed right. And those times when I just know I need to pray for X, something general or someone who I can’t get off my mind? Ah, there’s the Spirit again, not needing my stumbling words, not needing my struggling ideas, just needing me to make the time to pray, just needing me to make the time to come to God. How often I have not known how to pray, and have fallen back on the rosary as my familiar way of communicating my gut to God! This passage gives me comfort in that practice, and helps me to see that perhaps it is not a failing after all.
