I Still Have Never Seen You, And Some Days, I Don't Love You At All

i should be the first to admit my "prayer life" leaves something to be desired.usually feeling more like talking to those white complacent skies on snowy days, veins running through hands, or myself. at other times its quite practiced and ordinary and the last of many things i would rather not be doing, along with loading the dishwasher and making contributions to my college annual fund. but. friends. in the event i find myself in conversation with someone unimaginably frightening and great and beautiful, someone most commonly refered to as God. and, in fact, not just speaking with myself and my windows, these are some things i imagine or rather hope might be spoken between us...and if you will, excuse my dependence upon the voices of others for this exercise.

Romans 8:26In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. 27And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God's will.
