How can we pray for you? What do you pray when you don't know what to pray? Jesus prayed a lot. He went off by Himself to spend time with the Father (Luke 15:6). He prayed in front of His disciples (John 17). He also invited them to pray with Him (Matthew 26:36-38). We want to pray for you (Ephesians 1:18; 6:18). How can we pray for you today, this week, and this month? Please shoot us an email or write a comment below to share your requests. You can pray for us too. Here is a specific ways you can pray for us this month:

Kids Month reminds me of Romans 8:26.
Also, the Spirit helps us. We are very weak, but the Spirit helps us with our weakness. We don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit himself speaks to God for us. He begs God for us, speaking to him with feelings too deep for words. Romans 8:26 (ERV)
No matter how old you are, there are times you just don't know what to pray. You want to pray and know you should, but you just can't find the right words. God loves us so much that He gave us the Holy Spirit to help us talk to Him, even when we can't find the right words. Here's something cool: even the Holy Spirit can't always find the words to say what He wants to say. In those cases, He just passes His feelings on to God the Father. We can do that too. Just say, "God, I have no words for what I want to say, but you know how I feel." Those are great times to just sit and remember that God is right there with you, just like a friend my sit beside you to comfort you when neither of you have anything you can say.
God, Sometimes You overwhelm me. You are bigger than anything I ever face and even understand the things I do not. Can I just sit here with You for a while? You know what is on my heart. Thank You, Father. Amen.
