29.10.22: Come to help us

Context: Still exhausted, after an incredibly draining hospital trip to London, all I can do is rest as much as possible, and ask for help to pray:

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them (1 Timothy 2:1; NLT). 

The Spirit, too, comes to help us in our weakness. For we don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit expresses our plea with groanings too deep for words (Romans 8:26; TIB).

Holy Spirit,
Come to help me:
Intercede for me,
And sigh.

Holy Spirit,
Pray for others:
Plead on their behalf,
And cry.

Holy Spirit,
Weep within us all:
Don’t cease
Until we die.

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).
