Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words (Romans 8:26; NRSV).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

My thanks and praise,
And prayers for others
Are so weak.

May your Holy Spirit
Pray on my behalf,
With sighs too deep
For words –
While I keep silence.
