I pray every day, it is greatly comforting to me to be able to pour out my emotions and thoughts to a greater being who listens and soothes me. But there are days where I am so tired that I find myself feeling unable to find the words I’d like to use. I feel unable to pray because I don’t know what to say.
The thing is, those are the days when I think that my prayers are listened to the most, the days that I can’t pray “properly” because my heart, body, and soul are weighed down. I like to think that God can read the words on my heart, even when I don’t know what to say.
Psalms 34 has some comforting words for those of us who are struggling emotionally, battling through trials with our mental health, and experiencing poor physical health. “The eyes of God are on the righteous, And His ears listen to their cry for help. They cried out, and God heard; He rescued them from all their distresses. God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
If you are struggling today too, I hope those words being your comfort!
